Filmore...

Monday-Wednesday, Filmore pretty much stopped eating. He was hiding out under McCool's bed. Still vomiting. (which we thought was due to IBS) I got scared and took him to the vet. He saw a diff dr today. He said the only thing left to do was an exp. lap. Which means that he would be cut all the way down his stomach. Rich and I discussed it and said that we should do it. We went to pick him up from the vet and loved on him all night...These pics were taken before we left to take him. Yes, we were all sad. No, we had no idea that there was a chance that we would never see him  again. Once, the surgery started, the dr. called in the middle of surgery and said they found a white mass of something that they needed to go in and get. But, the problem was, it was VERY risky. If they went further, there was a chance they could hit certain blood vessels that would kill him! Rich talked to the dr and told him that we would have to call him back. We literally we on our knees praying and crying our eyes out. What to do? So, we decided it was best to find out what the mass was...
Around 3:00, the dr. called me and told me that Filmore had made it out surgery. I was soooooo happy that I was going to get to see him again and love on him, no matter what the outcome! They were able to get a sample of the mass and send it off. The dr. informed me that he had a good idea that it was cancer....I have never cried, been so sick before. I cried fro, Thurs-Sat. On Saturday, we were able to go visit him at the hospital.What a blessing...He was laying down when we walked in, and as soon as he heard my voice, he jumped up, with IV's in and all....i got to love on that baby forever. He looked so good...I knew that things were going to be just fine. God had my cat in his arms this whole time!
They finally got Filmore to eat and keep it down. Every prayer that I prayed that weekend, God was answering them! It was amazing! So, on Monday, I got a phone call, the dreaded call from the dr....
He said, well, we got the biopsy results back and it was not cancer! All i could say was WHAT???
I could not believe him! From then on, I have no idea what he said....Something about an absess on his pancreas....and that he would be on antibiotics for 3 weeks....WHEW-sooo happy! Thankful and blessed!!!! Who says God doesn't answer prayers? I'm living proof!!!!
Filmore is home and doing well...still vomiting but nothing major! He sleeps with us and I am loving every minute!!!!!




Emma loves this baby!!!!
