    1. Scott, bless you! I am still shaking just realizing the implications about this entire situation. Thank you for your confidence in me. Right now I am really questioning my ability and for the sake of the lives I am responsible for I must and I will pull myself together! Much Love to you this day! 💕🌸💕

  1. It’s so hard to determine what is wrong with pets. Lacking the ability to verbalize, it seems that there’s a fair amount of guesswork. Don’t question yourself – you’re doing what most of us do – the best that we can! ❤

    1. Bless you, Rob, for your confidence in me. If you really understood the extent of everything that I do within the care of these precious cats, the responsibilities that I do have are huge. I am still in and out of panic and I’m still really shaky. Yet for the sake of those who I Love, I will pull myself back together and get back to smooth waters once again. Much Love to you this day! 💕🐾💕

  2. Oh My! Close call indeed…It reminds me of my kitty Elliott….When he was about two he got seriously ill and was one day away from death. The vet said there was nothing more he could do as he couldn’t break his fever. I spent that entire day frantically searching the internet when I came across West Nile Fever in this cat they were describing. I called the Vet and told him I was thinking it was West Nile Fever and he said No, cats can’t get that and I told him nicely he was wrong and so he said let me go look this up and I’ll call you back. He called back an hour later and said you are absolutely correct, bring Elliott in and we’ll give him a different antibiotic. I did and a few hours later he was laying at the screen door, tail twitching and his mouth making whimpering noises as he drooled happily over the birds he wanted to go out and devour. He was back from the dead. Thank God the Vet was as receptive as he was. Elliott is now 16 going on 17 soon and still the energizer bunny….Funny how things happen. As for your panic, Empaths have a hard time dealing with emergencies. Our minds go out the window because the emotions are so overwhelming…You did fine AR and hopefully the Thyroid can be medicated so she improves…Good luck with that. Have a happy,Bella filled weekend..Much love…VK ❤

    1. VK, bless you for your support. I am usually good in a “crisis” but when the crisis of this magnitude involves one of my “babies” you are so right … I fly right into panic! The not knowing is what was so horrible! YOU are very smart FYI for going up against a Vet telling him outright he was wrong. I did not do that with our Vet for overlooking a high thyroid level because I have in my “history” getting kicked out of medical facilities for opening my mouth. Tricky business it is these days having the foresight as to what to say and what not to say. Everyone makes mistakes. And I do mean everyone!

      I’m keeping a very close eye on our Bella. So far no adverse side effects have been noted. She has been doing a lot of sleeping, poor thing. She is wiped out! I’m SO happy for your Elliot! If it were not for his smart Mom, he wouldn’t be here!! Much Love to you this day! 💞🐾💞

  3. Wow!! What a rollercoaster week for you Amy. What is important is that Bella is better. It was scary indeed and I am so glad things have settled with a diagnosis. Blessings to you and your family🤗🤗💕

    1. Garfield, I am just so relieved Bella is now being treated appropriately. For years I was telling Vets she has every symptom there is for hyperthyroidism. These blood tests, IMO, need to be more sensitive. Thank you for your support at this time of our lives. This week was a horror! Much Love to you!! 💞🐾💞

  4. Dear sweet Amy ❤ I am sorry this week has been so full of drama for you and your family. I am happy Bella is doing better. A pretty name, Bella. I am sure if your kitties could talk in a voice we all understand that they would tell you how thankful they are for your loving care! ❤ I have confidence in you that you will recover your balance. Give it a little time. ❤ Love, blessings, and prayers for you and your family. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. I always go into action mode, Holly. I’m hardwired to do so, even if I don’t have a clue as to what is really going on. All I knew something terribly wrong was happening. I look back and I honestly still cannot believe everything that took place this past week. Bella is one strong cat. It’s a miracle she did make a comeback! Much Love to you! 💞🐾💞

    1. Bless you! If I make a mistake things can go very wrong. Within our home I run and manage a mini Vet clinic for our special cats. I’m the calm one. I’m the one who maintains the peace. I’ve yet to recover from this event but I do know what to do which I will do in order to get me back to Balance. And yes my husband and I Love your pets as our own children! Much Love to you this day! 💞🐾💞

  6. For the very fact that you told your vet for years Bella had hyperthyroidism tells me you know very extensivelt what you are doing. The fact that the blood tests did not show it tells me, like you, they need to be improved. I can understand why and how you could “feel” incapable of caring for your lovelies, after experiencing that kind of anxiety, but it is just a tenoorary feeling. You definitely know what you are doing. I know how my I felt when I thought my cat was dying, thank goodness he didn’t. I amso glad your Bella feels better now. Bless you for all you do and do well.

    1. Frazzled, your comment and your genuine concern put tears in my eyes. Yep, still emotional I am. Yes I told Vets for years about my suspicion about hyperthyroidism yet every time I wasn’t heard because the tests came back normal. This last time when “heart” was mentioned all thought of thyroid went blank. Thank you thank you thank you for what you said! I know I am excelling at what I do yet I get very little recognition for doing so. Bless you from the bottom of my Heart. I will find my confidence again. I promise you!! I LOVE these babies as much as I would if I had children! (((HUGS))) 💖💖💖

    1. Yes, Dan, Bella (Marie) is a gorgeous cat and she knows it! She is pampered and LOVED. When the staff saw her over at our Vet I heard OH’s when she was seen …. she just has this energy about her that pulls the eye. I’m SO relieved she is still here. Gosh darn it! I’m NOT ready to say goodbye to yet another baby! *Deep breath* (((HUGS))) 💖💖💖

  7. Your are doing what you can only do – your best in any circumstances. Nobody can ask more of you, and the cats probably understand this more than we do. It’s really hard for you but you are doing a great job caring for them all. xx

I just returned from a forest, being there for so many hours hubby called to ask where I was. (smile) My Sanity and Balance have returned! Now to get another good night’s rest and I’ll be set!

  8. All ‘events’ are a two way street Amy and your darling Bella showed you…’you’ 😀
    You also showed her that you loved her so much you went to all that trouble to find her heart (well, thyroid anyway 😀 ) by showing her your heart ❤ 😀
    I hope all is well dear lady 😀

    1. All is well, Mark! I returned home today after being in a forest for 3.5 hours to call back to me my Sanity and Balance. And of course to shoot pictures! Before I left I was still in and out of panic but no more. I also do know there are “lessons” for all involved with this Major Event and you knowing me, I have already asked to be shown my Lesson (s). Bella is already responding to her thyroid medication! She is such a strong cat (energy wise) she has yet more years in her, bless her Heart! As for her Heart, I’ve been observing her for years making sure she shows no signs of cardiac or respiratory distress. None have appeared. I just thank goodness she is finally getting the assistance her body requires to stay healthy. Bless your Heart, dear friend, for your uplifting and caring comment!! (((HUGS))) 💞🐾💞

  9. Oh, Amy, if only I lived close to you. I did Crisis Care for people, so why not for our fur people who love unconditionally? Human people seem to put conditions on things, but our fur people only love and trust, no conditions, no complaints (or almost none). If only they could speak our language and we knew for certain what they were saying. Most of the time we can make educated guesses and be 99% right, but sometimes they are so good at hiding it from us. You need some respite care and I need someone to care for. I’m sending you my love and my prayers, my thoughts and all the care I can force into these prayers and thoughts! Be warm and feel my love as it washes over you.

    1. BIG (((HUGS))), Angie, for what you said! Bless you! I am gaining back my strength and my solid ground under me and my Bella is finally on the medication she requires. I’ve been very aware of how all of us make mistakes so instead of falling into anger or “blame”, I focus on the fact Bella shall make a full recovery! I LOVE my babies as if they are were my own children. They are family! I feel your Love, dear friend. Thank you and may you have many Blessings in your life for reaching out to me. Much Love to you!! 💞🐾💞

      1. Bella knows how much you love her and she trusts you completely. Mistakes are made in humans also, and I made so many with my kids that I’ll always regret but we’ve all moved on. It is easier for our fur family to forgive and love than our human family, mostly because they harbor no anger or resentment. They trust and love. That’s why I’ll have only fur children in my next life. I usually don’t say this, but these last few weeks have reinforced this plan.

        I am so happy that Bella is better. It is so difficult to see a fur baby in distress, unable to tell yo u what is hurting but still letting you know something is wrong. Your babies are so fortunate to have you,and I think you are the best mom any baby could ask for, fur baby or human baby or in any other case, even a pod person that I seem to be turning myself in to. You’re the best, Amy. You are surrounded by love from around the world! Never forget that. HUGS xoxoxo

      2. Bella is improving, Angie. It’s going to take both time and encouragement on my part to get her to freely come and go in this house by herself but we are getting there. She is still presenting with rear leg weakness and I am praying that this too in time will heal. It is a miracle she is alive! All this might have been avoided IMO if she had been started on thyroid medication years ago. Yet that is water under the bridge and like you said, we ALL make mistakes. I just thank God she is healing as I write this!! Much Love to you, dear friend!!! 💞🐾💞

    1. Bella made such a drastic turnaround on the very day I called the in-home euthanasia veterinarian that I stopped all proceeding going forward with that decision. Bringing her into our regular veterinarian my suspicion that she has had thyroid problems was confirmed and right now she is on thyroid medication looking better and better with every day. Bless you for your concern because my babies are my family and that is where my Heart truly is. Much Love to you! This event happened last Tuesday so between then and today there has been a lot of improvement in Bella’s Health! Thank goodness! 💕🐾💕🐾💕

        We know how bad it hurts to lose a furbaby! We lost Shrimp in October and it still hurts!

      2. Yes I do understand that type of pain and I am truly sorry about shrimp. We lost three of our babies beginning last September to this last January. To lose another I don’t think at this point in my life I would remain sane. God knew that and HE moved and in so doing a miracle unfolded. God bless you for your genuine concern. I will pray for you that your life will again be all smiles without the pain of your loss over Shrimp. Big hugs, Mom Bonzo 💝💞💝

    1. I have been doing those things that help me come back to my balance and to peace of mind. With each day I get more and more improved myself as I walk away from this incredibly terrifying scare. I just got home from the gym and as I told hubby I had a very challenging workout! Oh yes I am getting back myself again! 👏👏👏

    1. D, Miracles abound here lately and as I write this I’m stunned. We rescued Bella in 2004 and since that time she has been afraid to be with the rest of the cat family. So we set her up in our study and then she slept with me on a pillow next to my head. Now since she has been on thyroid medication, she does not want to be in the study and she is out and about in the house, discovering it as if for the first time. I’m stunned! I am so grateful that she is finally on medication. I’ve been telling Vets for years that she has every symptom of hyperthyroidism but because her test came back normal, she was never treated. She is 16 going on 3 at this point and my Heart couldn’t be happier!! When my “family” is happy, I am! Bless you for your concern!!! (((HUGS))), Amy🌹
