Please Pray For Gabriel


UPDATE: I now have a firm diagnosis of what ails my precious Gabriel. He has congenital polycystic kidneys, which means his kidneys are full of holes. My only options are (1) a kidney transplant, the average survival rate is one year; and (2) giving him daily subcutaneous injections of fluid supplemented with potassium.
Given Gabriel’s age, I will not put him through surgery. So, after I bring him home from the vet hospital tomorrow, I will give him the injections every day and do my very best to keep him alive for as long as I can.
Thank you for all your prayers. I am so very blessed to have such kind and loving friends here on FellowshipOfMinds.
God bless everyone,
~Eowyn (Friday, 5:20 pm, west coast time)

My beloved cat, Gabriel, is very very ill. I took him to the vet just yesterday for a checkup. He’s been losing weight and appetite for the last couple of weeks. The vet could find nothing wrong with him.
Right after we returned home, Gabriel took a rapid turn for the worse. He has difficulty walking and neither drinks nor eats.
He is the light of my life. I love him with all my heart and soul. PLEASE say a prayer for Gabriel — that God in His infinite wisdom and mercy, heal Gabriel of what is ailing him, and that I may have just a little more time with my beloved boy.
Thank you.

Oh, poor little Gabriel. Is he very old? He is in my prayers, most assuredly.

Eowyn, I was once told by a vet after one of my cats had an illness that if my cat stops eating I would have to force feed it milk with either an eyedropper or syringe otherwise it would just starve itself and become very weak. I did have to do it once after our cat, Aja had an allergic reaction to a medication and scratched the fur and skin from around her face and she quit eating and drinking, we used a straw to get water and milk down her and it worked, she started eating on her own… Read more »

I put one in for the little fella, too.
I love animals, particularly small ones.

It must be a guy thing…..blaming gas on the family pets. 🙂 Hubby blames Joey (our four-footed furry kid) for it, too. Joey normally weighs about 30 pounds until he falls asleep in my lap. Then he weighs around 500 pounds. Joey’s much better company than most people I know, and he also has better manners except for his drive-by-trash-can-raids.

Hope things are improving with your baby today. We dearly love our older Yorkie, Tillie, who is almost 15, even though she gets deafer and more arthritic by the day. We would feel lost w/o her.

Good luck w/the injections. Hopefully that willl help Gabriel w/his appetite.

Steve,
One reason Oliver is so great to have around is that he doesn’t shed.
At all.
The down side is that he has to be groomed.
LOL – Instead of getting into the land surveying/engineering/construction bizz, I should have been a pet groomer.
Loaded, I would be.

All cats go to Heaven. It gives all the dogs in Heaven something to do. Prayers, always.
