Another visit to the stabby place

Mom made me go to the stabby place last week...

I am NOT happy to be here and I don't wanna get out of my carrier!

I was not happy to go and I made sure mom and everyone knew it! But I had to get my lab work repeated to verify the kidney function was good and not being masked by my high thyroid levels. I am happy to report that I gained 1.5lbs! I still need to gain a few more pounds back but mom and vet were happy with that for now.  And mom got a call from the vet today saying all my lab work came back looking good! So that means we are all set for the Radioactive Iodine treatment next week. Mom said she will be happy when I get that treatment because I am already showing signs of withdrawal from the thyroid medicine that I was taking. I am off it now per protocol for the RAI treatment and I am already experiencing lack of appetite and am picking at my fur. 

Tuesday March 15th can't come soon enough! Mom wants to say thank you to everyone for the kind words, suggestions about diet and for contributing to my fundraiser so she can afford to get me treatment. We couldn't afford to get me this treatment without all your help!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Relaxing at home after visit to stabby place.
Mom will post an update when I go in for treatment. Thanks for all the pawsitive thoughts and purrayers!!!


  1. CJ you are a true soldier and we admire you and your mom very much! It is great you have put on weight and we continue to send gentle healing purrs! xxx

  3. We're purring that everything goes according to the doctor's plan for you. Taking Rhett off of the thyroid meds ahead of I-131 treatment and seeing the symptoms return was hard for the head peep, so it must be tough for your human, too. Hang in there, both of you!

  4. CJ, paws up for gaining some weight back. We hope all goes well with your treatment next week.

  5. I'm so glad you are getting this treatment, CJ! I'm sending lots of purrs your way, and I hope everything works out perfectly!
