Good juju, pawsitive energy, healing thoughts, love and prayer  all coming your way from all pf us straight to your Dad.  He’s a strong man just like his daughter.   There seems to be a correlation  between having a huge generous heart and heart “issues’.  Guess it’s hard for that size heart to hold all that goodness it’s constantly  giving out to others, so it needs a little medical  tweak here and there to  ake sure it nurtures itself while nurturing others.

Love and hugs and healing light from all pf us♥️♥️♥️♥️

  Sally, I’m past stone-cold nuts now. Send some good juju,

I think once you’re  past stone cold nuts, many drink and drug (including moonahine and ‘illicit ”  street drugs).  But your best therapy is to go snuggle with Purrkins and then you will know the peace and calm you need eight now.  And that peace and calm is what your Dad and Mom will feel too♥️♥️♥️

THANK YOU, SALLY 💝💝💝🫂🫂🫂😘😘😘

The procedure went well. Dad had a slight complication with bleeding as he is on blood thinners. So it is not ideal but not uncommon. Will see how today goes🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Thank you for all the prayers, good juju, love & from all of our hearts & souls!

Massive hugs and loads of love!

I wanted to update our thread with some excellent mews! We have a successful compounding pharmacy!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
We got Purrkins pheno results back on Friday. They are PURRFECt! 😀😀😀👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🎉🎉🎉.
Purrkins saw Dr.R on Wed; she wanted to wait a little longer than the typical two weeks to make sure things were stable as long as Purrkins did well, and he did!!!🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

We were hopeful because Purrkins has been doing great & we thought his levels were good, but now we KNOW they are😀😀😀 I can’t tell you how badly we needed this news PHEW!!! As long as Purrkins continues to do well, he doesn’t have to see Dr. R and be poked for another three months. We are doing a 3 months recheck instead of 6 for obvious reasons! We want to make sure the new compounding meds continue to do the job!

Purrkins continues to teach everyone some new things. Dr.R says we keep her on her toes, and she has learned as we all have from this terrible experience! I told her my other concern is how many other patients are affected and suffering and do not know!?!? We can’t be the only souls!?!?!

Since I last posted, our lives have continued to be in turmoil, but things are starting to look up. 🤞🏻🙏🏻 We have Dad home from, yes, ANOTHER hospital visit, and now the good news with Purrkins.

MAY WE ALL HAVE SOME HEALTHY, LESS STRESSFUL DAYS! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
LOVE TO YOU ALL!

SUWEEEEEEET!!!! That’s super cool news, thank you for letting us know. There’s so much relief in getting those reports back. It feels like progress doesn’t it? I agree, a 3 month check-in is wise.

I’m with you, it makes me sad to think there are other pets affected. I hope if they’re out there, that their hoomans are addressing the issue. Now I know not to take anything for granted when it comes to compounding meds.

Purrkins is simply one amazing, strong, resilient, inspawrational role model! And you too my furiend. You’ve made it through this turmoil and all the other stuff going in in life and you still have such a great, pawsitive attitude. We learn much from you as well.

Cheers to playful and hoppy days ahead for you, the boys, and your dad too! xoxo

Over the moon ecstatically  happy to hear how Purrfectly Purrkins is doing😎👍👏😁  This kitty never ceases to amaze us!  

And silly me, , I thought , or maybe ASSumed things were steady and stable with your Dad.  And that may be the case now (again), but only after another hospital stay (ugh)!  Reme, we are here for you for all things Purrkins and all things Holly and your beloved hooman family♥️

Ditto Jerry!

I’m so sorry. I did not mean to drop off like that; life well… it’s been a bumpy ride!!!

Purrkins continues to do fantastic and acting like a kitten on his pheno;) I’ll make a video of his antics. I showed Dr. R today, and she was amazed at what he can do on three legs;) Dad is getting his strength back, and 🙏🏻 we hope we can all start to breathe a little?!?

Thanks, Rene,
Yea, what helps the most is seeing Purrkins be Purrkins. That’s the gift, & Yes, pawgress with the labs being where they should be again, a massive relief! We could not agree more! Strong, resilient, inspiration, our hero! He continues to amaze us every day. True gift!

Thanks, Sally
SO are we! 😻😽😸
Yea, of course, one would THINK and hope, right? UGH
THANK YOU!

I need no response 😉
LOADS OF LOVE & THANKS to you both!

No production this is the fastest I could get this up to share, Sally:)
I know Purrkins will make you guys smile 😊 these are little blurps. We do not play for long periods. We moderate by picking up the q tip and ending his session;) We do little spurts because, as you see, there is no controlling Purrkins activity he does as he has ALWAYS had on four and three faster. He is on 2 feet a lot of the time. Purrkins amazes us on a daily basis.

Love you guys!
💝💝💝🫶🫶🫶 extra smooches to the pups, a double for Cash, Sally, please.

icon_lolsmiley_clapOMC! Purrkins just cracks me up, I love this unedited raw footage! Just couldn’t stop smiling over here as he leaped around over a QTip! So so cute. He’s really light on his feet like a ballerina! Lookin really, really good. And Saxton too! Nice to see him make an appearance. I guess he doesn’t find the QTips as exciting?

P.S. Some day you must do a video tour of all the accommodations you’ve made for Purrkins and Saxton. I love the traction and stairs in the house that I saw in the video. Way to go!

And I’m grinning g ear to ear too!  Purrkjns always know how to brighten our day and make us smile!  He NEVER disappoints!

Purrkins holding that Q-tip I in his mouth just like a dog with a bone is so  preciois!  And then the way he was watching you and waiting for you to throw it……can’t  stop smiling!  His anyics with that Q-tip truly are Pirrkins specific.  

And I got such a chuckle out of Saxton’s indifference😎

Tha ks Holly, this really, really, really did make me smile!!!!

Hugs 

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS….And I did give extra smooches to da’ pups.  Shhhh……dont tell Murtle and Frankie……I fed Cash yet another serving of food.  He and I both find co fort in food🤣😂  And for us, “food” means pcorn and a scoop ice cream!
