Katie, when you're there, ask if there is a patient advocate or a patient care coordinator. I'm positive there is one. Since Buck is having multiple issues, I think this would be a great ally to have in your corner. They can arrange for meetings with all the different specialists at one time. Plus, they can always get in to the CCU or any other place and will check for you at any time.

I'm so sorry that so much is happening and that you and Buck lost your sweet CJ. I got a lump in my throat reading about your kitty finding a place to die - it's true they do that.

I'm glad to hear Buck has had a bath and some liquids. It's my own treatment plan for almost everything. But please tell him to get better soon because an enema is the next step in Fisher's Moms' treatment!

Katie, I'm sorry about CJ, its hard to lose a pet but harder still when you're so worried about Buck. It sounds as though he is improving which is good. I'll continue to pray for you both. Heal well and swiftly Buck, we miss you. And Katie, take good care of yourself sweetie, strength, energy and love to you my friend.

I really don't know where I am or how I don't see certain posts...........

I am so sorry it's taken me forever to respond, I only just saw this right this second...

Okay before another word, I must pray.
Dear Jesus in light of this sudden illness that has come up, we sit here, all united in Your knowledge that all will be according to Your perfect will and that this family Will Be Put Back Together As It Was Before. Dear Lord, I pray you surround this family and this man and this darling woman with the Strength that only You can provide...........the Comfort that only You can give............the Peace that ony You have mastered in all of us who so strongly believe that through You, all things are possible. I praise You for hearing all of our prayers and ask that You and Your perfect Will be done now....Amen

I will pray for help for you. I will pray for strength for you and your husband too. I will pray for the doctors and nurses to be all knowing, all correct and all suited for what Buck needs right now. I hope we all pray constantly until you tell us that things are perfectly normal again.

You are in my thoughts and I am honored to pray for your family.

Please, as hard as it is and with as little extra time as we all know you don't have, keep us informed. Do you need a phone number or anyone to call so that they can report on your behalf? Let us all know....any of us would be more than willing to receive a phone call and then post for you.

God bless you and Buck..

God let's nothing happen without a reason. I am speaking of the beloved kitty and all that it provided you and your family in the way of love. But maybe burying that precious creature has something to do with your continued efforts for Buck. You know when one door closes, another one opens. Keep your faith very strong.

A couple of years ago, we went through pretty much what you are right now. It is very difficult for both of you, but things will work out. We will keep the prayers coming for you.

Just came home to get some clothes. The doc took me aside this afternoon and told me to call the children. Buck has a day or days left.

I don't know when I'll be back here. Pray.
