Do Not Give Up

LR -3070

Well.  Well.  Well.

I’ve been proven a liar.

I would have sworn I was preparing for another loss.  Yet, that did not stop me from researching Homeopathy to find a remedy that may improve Karma’s condition.

Saturday.  I came to a firm decision to make an appointment with the in-home Veterinarian who performs euthanasia.  Just by the way Karma looked and acted I thought I knew the end was near.  I never made that call.

In the meantime, I and my husband had not stopped researching Homeopathy to find a remedy that may improve Karma’s condition.  That very same morning that I was going to make the appointment, Karma was given the first dose of the Homeopathy remedy my husband and I chose.  We did not know the outcome, (we never do!)

I did not have much hope that anything of great importance would happen. Yet if I had not given that remedy the question would have forever remained in my mind … WHAT IF?

Both of our Veterinarians quit.  In their minds, this was the END.  No call backs when I was told I would be hearing from them.  No follow ups with medications I requested or questioned.  It was as though I came upon a wall of silence. This came as both a shock and a Blessing because their actions only made me more determined to help Karma’s anxiety and vomiting.

Both issues have been addressed.  And to our shock, to our utter disbelief, Karma went from looking like he was on death’s door, to walking up and down stairs and no longer vomiting, something he had been doing every day, a few times a day.  That stopped.

Saturday evening hubby and I just stared at each other, whispering again and again,  “He didn’t vomit.”  Eyes wide, mouths open, we just stood there whispering.  Truly a pinch me moment.  Is this really happening?

Now granted Karma is very weak, has lost a lot of weight, yet his hunger is coming back and he is tolerating larger portions as I slowly increase his intake each day.  He is still a one-on-one care, I feeding him and giving fluid pushes twice daily, morning and evening, yet to see this turn around, brings such relief to this Mom’s Heart.

Now for the real challenge.  When to give the next dose of Homeopathy is the question.  For you see, with Homeopathy, IF you over dose, you can actually cause the symptoms you are treating.  And as far as all the books we have read by the “experts” we have found that their system of dosing is not correct so we have come up with our own system that works.  Scary?  You bet!  We are flying solo here!

The END it seems is not yet.  When that shall be, no one knows, which holds true for any of us.  Yet, no matter how bleak the picture looks, do not give up!  OH.  MY.  GOSH.  I cannot stress this strongly enough.  We have been given more precious time with our Karma because we followed through with something we didn’t know would work, yet we tried it.  And by golly it did work!

I would not recommend what we are doing to anyone.  Talk about stress!!  Not only am I am Mom, but an “independent caretaker” learning how to treat serious conditions without any guidance from anyone.  The knowledge I have today has taken years to achieve.  I have the grey hairs to prove that this endeavor I have undertaken is the most difficult one I have in my Life.

In closing, I am leaving comments open.  I am not sure how much visiting I will be doing to your blogs or how many comments I will be answering.  Between the last few weeks and this weekend, I am beat a’roney.  Time for Mom to recoup.  And the kicker is, I still don’t know one way or another if Karma truly has made a “recovery” or if this is just the “feeling good phase” before the end.

Yet his “energy” is so improved that I can breathe again …

Much Love,
❤ ❤ ❤

  1. This is wonderful news, dear Amy, no matter if it is for recovering or the last phase, this we never know, but great for Karma to at least have a better time now.
    Will you be so kind to tell me, what you chose to use, you know, that one of mine has same problem. I use the Gold, but need more help for him and the vets are not very usable.
    Much love to all of you

    1. Irene, I am very hesitant to tell you what I used because if it is the wrong remedy it can cause more damage. This remedy is extremely caustic to the kidneys, very very strong. This is not like allopathic medicine. There are many remedies for the same condition and by going by the symptoms the remedy is chosen. Please email me with as much detail as possible what your cat is doing. Include sleeping patterns, on left or right side, his smell, his actions, all the symptoms he is experiencing. How does his BM smell? What does his pee look like? Is his coloring pale? Is his nose dry and pinched? There is SO much involved and to know, and if I give you the wrong remedy, I would feel terrible. No the Vets are not very helpful because in their minds when the cat reaches this stage of renal failure, that’s it. Again, email me. I will not leave that kind of information here. And still no promises. I really don’t know if I can help you. Love, Amy ❤

    2. Also, do you know how to give your cat SQ fluid pushes of LR? If you don’t, ask you Vet to teach you and ask that you be given LR right away. Your cat if vomiting is dehydrated and dehydration in of itself will kill him. Contact your Vet right away, Irene, and request to be shown how to give fluids to your cat. ASAP. ❤

      1. And one other thing, dear friend. I need a Vet’s Diagnosis as to what is going on with your cat and why he is vomiting. Without that, I honestly will be unable to help you. Homeopathy is too powerful to play guessing games with. ❤

  2. Your photographs of the flowers are just gorgeous!! They leave me in awe! The energetics you are capturing are wow! Wonderful news about Karma. 😊Homeopathy is it when it comes to healing and a quick turn around. Some amazing stories there. I had used some herbal tinctures for my dear cat that had kidney failure and a homeopathic detox formula. Both worked wonders for her. Love too is an amazing healer. ❤️ So I am extending my pink blanket from my home all the way up to yours. Good for cuddles. 💗💖❤️ Xxoo Denise

    1. Humbly I thank you, Denise, about the compliment on my art lately. It seems that my deep emotions are pushing me to seek deep, really deep within Mother. My goal is to create Art, not just photography. Thank you for noticing the “energenics” that truly have me gaping. And yes Homeopathy works when you get the right remedy. This science is so complex and so vast and it is far from easy to learn. I literally lost hope with Homeopathy because of what happened with Prinny but now my faith has been renewed. Bless you for the pink blanket!!! There is no shortage of Love here yet I welcome even more. Thank you, dear friend!!! (((HUGS))) ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Dan, if this was Faith you would be doing the exact same thing. I feel towards my cats as if they are my kids. For real. Medicine sadly is very lacking when it comes to “healing” and so my husband and I are committed to study Homeopathy and learn how to administer it properly. It is so hard and so darn scary because as stated in this post, even the doctors who are supposedly the experts in the field of Homeopathy are not dosing correctly, as we learned the hard way. I can barely stand up at this point having gone for weeks pulling Karma from death’s door and now getting him turned around. His care does not end there. No. Now I must observe how much I can feed him, how much IV fluid to give and if and when to give another dose of the Homeopathy. All this and being dead tired, still taking care of 11 other cats, nope, make that 12 including Tee. I really wanted to go for a hike today to get into that forest but I will be lucky if I can make myself go for a walk. I must. I rested yesterday and still the exhaustion clings. I am seeing Karma improve daily. I know he is old and I know he has problems but to know we have been given more time with him … And it is quality time, is a Blessing from God. ❤

    1. Oh, Van!!! *tears* Thank you!! Now I know, truly know, we are doing all we can to give Karma a quality of Life right to the very end. Medicine has a long ways to go IMO to realize how precious Life is and to give up on any human or animal when there may be yet a chance, is inhumane. I’m talking gentle means of healing. Not the barbaric ways of our medical system. Sorry if I sound bitter. Too many times I’ve been burned by medicine. This only spurns me on stronger to learn ways of healing outside of mainstream medicine. Thanks for listening, dear friend. ❤

  3. Oh Amy, I am so excited for you and praying that she becomes stronger everyday.Miracles can happen and so glad that you tried the new remedy because the “what if” would also drive me crazy. Just loving the blue flower as it is beautiful! Huge Hugs ❤

    1. God Bless you, Kathy!! Miracles do happen when we plunge forward, doing our very best, applying what all we know, and trusting in God. I truthfully had no hope with this remedy. I was that convinced that Monday would be the day to say goodbye to Karma. I have been documenting this journey of Karma’s with my phone camera and just seeing the difference from day to day, makes me shake my head in wonder. Just to get him to stop vomiting is a Miracle. Our vets could not. And when I asked for more help, silence. At least they are supplying the IV fluid I need to keep Karma hydrated. For this much I am so grateful. And I am really trying not to go into anger over how they are treating us. Let’s just say that medicine has a LONG ways to go before real healing is understood. Much Love to you!! ❤

      2. Everything does work out for Good, Kathy. I have no doubt about that. I pray my actions and my Life rub off on those around me so they change how they treat animals. I live by example. ❤

      3. PS They are supplying the IV fluid and the pain medication. I had requested two other types of Meds, one for anxiety and one to help the vomiting. I was given one med that is supposed to help stop vomiting but it did not work. When I requested another, that is when the silence happened. I was given a sorry of an excuse recommendation for anxiety herbal remedy instead of the medication I know would have done the job to help with Karma’s anxiety. What don’t people get that when someone is dying you go all out to make that someone as comfortable as possible? Thank God we have the knowledge we do regarding Homeopathy and herbs. Even with all that is being done, today I am seeing a change and not for the better. Not sure if it is a temporary phase or one that will lead to the Mercy Walk. Thanks for listening, my friend. ❤

      4. This has to be so frustrating on your end when you hit a brick wall with their silence. I totally understand that you do want to make her as comfortable as you can. Prayers continue and hoping for the best. Happy to listen and wish I could do more! Hugs ❤

      5. Kathy, Karma got to the end of his rope yesterday and so the in-home Vet came last evening. Karma is now HOME. You are the first person I have told this to. The improvement we saw was the “looking good before the end” phase. He was in so much pain and I am so grateful for this doctor who came almost immediately. His passing was the most incredibly peaceful and Loving one I have ever witnessed. He passed in my arms as I sat on the floor cradling him. I saw the light leave his eyes before his heart completely stopped. He just flew right on Home. Me? I’m totally broken but so relieved Karma is no longer suffering. ❤

  4. That’s wonderful news. It is not just the homeopathy but also the love, care and attention you give to Karma that works too. To vets, he is just another sick cat – another one of many. They don’t understand just how much Karma means to you.

    1. God Bless you, dear Raewyn! Thank you from the bottom of my Heart for saying what you just did. *tears* My HOPE is that our actions these Vets see so they themselves treat future cats who are old and ill with more Compassion and Care. This is all about Love. And knowing we are doing everything we can to care for Karma right until he is ready to leave this world. Love, Amy ❤

    1. Debi, I’ve learned to do things quickly and very efficiently. Sometimes I think for real that I have a way of cutting the time atom and stepping in between time. If people actually knew what I do on a daily basis they would not believe me. Yes this is a lot of work. Just keeping the house as clean as possible is enough to make a sane woman run screaming. LOL I’ve gotten used to the pace and work, and know enough when to quit to take time for me. It’s a wonder I am able to do my Art the way I do. How I long to be in that world more then I am and go to many places that I am not able to go right now. Once Karma’s Time has come and he passes, a lot of “time” will open up for me. Just trust me, it will. And good for you for taking care of 4 cats. FYI … Mine all are special needs. I’m shaking my head as I tell you. There are 2 other barn cats I take care of too … Echo and Jersey. Long story there. Yet …. I couldn’t imagine my Life without doing what I am. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Much Love to you! ❤

      1. you know it is great, and the cats are so blessed, that you are physically able to do this. I know, that for me, year by year have dramatically changed me too, into a ‘special needs’ case. I’m so like the cats i know what they go thru. But, like I said –
        you’re an Inspiration Amy. 🙂 woohoo!! I love your posts !

      2. Caring for these “kids” has changed me drastically, Debi, as well. For the better. And I also as well know “cat” to understand. Still learning in fact. Their “world” is so vast and amazing, completely unlike ours. I feel the same about you as you do me, FYI. (smile) ❤

    1. Thank you, Laura. I truly know how sick he is, yet to make that final call takes so much to consider. Karma is in good hands and I thank God that he is with me, and not someone else. I walk a different beat then most and that includes how to have a relationship with my fur babies. Not too many people “get it”. Much Love, Amy ❤

  6. Ya know, there is no way of knowing if this will work or for how long, but at least you are giving it your best shot and Karma is being loved beyond measure at the end of her life.
    Sounds like a great deal to me! Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤

    1. Yes, Natalie, this I do know that I am truly giving Karma my best shot and that he is being cared for around the clock. No one knows the time nor the day when it will be the last on this earth. I’m strictly going by how Karma looks and acts to make that Mercy Decision. I don’t believe in unnecessary suffering.
