Miracle Monday

Last week, on my personal Facebook account, I posted that I was hoping for a minor miracle....and I got one!!

I owe a huge huge THANK YOU to everyone who responded to the Help Requested for Jewel post with words of kindness and donations for her care!!  Once again, I am amazed at everyone's generosity and kindness!  I do not know how I will ever repay all the love and care and kindness you have all given me and Jewel.

Thanks to all of the donations, I was able to take Jewel in for her blood tests (which she gets every three months).



She's managed to maintain her weight, which really surprised me.  She's still at 8 pounds 10.5 ounces.

Jewel's blood tests came back with pretty shocking results, if you ask me!!  Her creatinine had risen to 4.1 in her previous visit, which is why we started the IV fluids.  It has FALLEN to 2.1 (Normal creatinine ranges from 0.6 to 2.4)!!!  It is no longer toxic to her body, which means the fluids are doing their job.

Her kidney values are a little worse (of course) but not as bad as we had all anticipated.

She goes back in three months again.

I put all of the leftover donation money I have received thus far into Jewel's account at Cat Care so it will be there for her ongoing needs.  Any further donations I receive, I will withdrawal from PayPal and set aside to put on Jewel's account when we go back.

Thank you so much everyone, again.  Words cannot express how much we appreciate and love you all.
