    Good Bye My Miles ... (He's off to Sir Jury)

    my, I'm such a cry WRECK. I'm not going to visit my poor baby until tomorrow evening and he can't be with me for two-three days.. my little guy is going in for amputation this afternoon. I already miss him.. what's the good part in 'goodbye'???

    morning update: his extremefriendly specialist and I talked (with deaf vet too), we decided it's best for him. [1] the crack is not even, and if we saw the keenbone off for pins, it would make his leg shorter than the other three, [2] about 4-6 months strict recovery IN cage, away from his attempting playful furriends. (with amputation, only a few weeks), [3] in years, because of the location of the crack (lesser trochanter - just below the neckball) possiblity of pins getting out of its place, going up after lots of runnings then poking and bother him. specialist also said what she has seen, is most difficultest case - she CAN try, "fix & see" (intramedullary operation) but not promising. so we felt amputating was best for him without any more trouble/pains.

    miles lost rapidly in weight is what concerns surgeon the most - even though I had miles eaten 2x than usual past this week, he lost approx. two pounds and is very bony - so she's going to do some bloodwork & ultrasound (for kidneys, liver, active organs) to ensure there is nothing else wrong before amputation today.

    I'm at starbucks, anxiously to hear back from specialist, hoping nothing else serious is wrong with him.. tonight, while I can't visit him, at home without my little brave fella there will be so depressing and empty.


    my dear miles, hope you will go through everything smoothly today, and days going by fast then you come home!! I hope you will forgive me when you get back but know you'll always be my little hopper!
    rest and sleep softly sweet locke..

    The title of your thread scared me to death! OMG! Well, I am glad to hear that a decision was made and sounds like the best possible one for him. I am sorry that you won't see him for a little while, but he will probably be rather foggy for a bit and best that he be where he can be helped if needed. I hope that the weight loss is just from the pain he has been in and nothing serious. Still sending prayers and ((((hugs)))). Let us know as soon as you hear anything. Take comfort with the rest of your Ark, I am sure they will be missing him too!


    Thanks so much kittycats_delight for the beautiful siggy and avatar of my kids!

    Poor Miles.... ! I agree that amputation is the best solution for him. But better be sure that he is able to cope with the sedation... . I hope that the bloodtests turn out possitive for him!
    Chin up, Gina, he will make it

    Gina ! You scared me to death! I thought the title of the thread meant that Miles had passed away! I know it will be hard on everyone not to see him for a few days, but he will be home safe and sound soon.
    Ask your vet about microchipping. ~~ It could have saved Kuhio's life. And it cost Halo hers. Consider having your cat tested for Polycystic kidney disease ~~ Rest in peace Willy

    Gina - my heart is still THUMP THUMP THUMPING from reading the title of your thread. Like others, I opened it in dread. I hate the waiting part too, you can't focus on anything except what is happening to your cat and how long it will be before you can see him. Perhaps Miles has sweated away some of his weight from pain and stress. I'll keep checking in at work when I can. We are all thinking about Miles and you, hoping for the very best.

    Awe Gina! Can't you just go by and visit him? I have been praying for him even though I haven't responded before now. Poor baby. He will be glad when it is over and he is out of pain and can play like he did before and I know you will too. Pain will make you loose weight, I know from personal experience when I went through a lot of pain myself and was loosing weight at a rate of a pound a day. Will say extra prayers for him today. Hang in there Gina.

    I also got the wrong idea from the title. A friend of mine had one cat with a front leg amputated an another one with the hind leg. The cat with it's hind leg off had more trouble than the other one (probably jumping).

    I edited the thread title, so it won't scare anyone else like it did me!
    Hope he'll be fine so they can do the surgery, and he can get on with being silly, fluffy, Miles-long-miles!
