    Glad he ate the pureed carrots, and the less water but every day seems quite doable, and maybe more comfortable for him!

    Prayers for Willy! It would be wonderful if there was a miracle in store. Have you used this communicator before?

    HUGS and I hope all of you and Willy have a good week.

    Well, kinda. I called into Karen's radio show on Saturday and she gave us some information.
    So, we booked an hour session with her and had the reading this morning.

    Our dear, sweet, precious Rhoda Palmateer passed away at 9:30 EST tonight.

    Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers.

    I am so sorry. My deepest sympathy to her family and all who love her so very much.

    Rest in peace, dearest Rhoda.

    Rhoda is hard at work on Willy's behalf.

    Dr. Todd Palmatier's Friday surgery was unexpectedly canceled. He is seeing Willy at 10:00 in the morning!!!!!

    Thank you Rhoda!

    You know, even when Rhoda was sick, she still got more accomplished before lunch than I do all day!

    Heaven is extra blessed to have Rhoda there.

    I wonder if she has a hand in the cancellation.

    Prayers for Willy!

    Dr. Palmatier is very kind and gentle. Willy liked him right off and came out of the carrier purring.

    He agreed that Willy has days to weeks to live. His kidneys are so small. They are scarred up from disease or something. Maybe it was hereditary.

    He was very interested in what the pet communicator had to say and didn't laugh me out of the office. He was facinated that he had the same last name as Rhoda.

    He looked over all the supplements we have been giving him and agreed with all of them. But, agreed it will just buy him a little time.

    He gave Willy an acupuncture session and Willy loved it. He rolled around on the table showing more energy than he has in days. I was concerned that he would stick the little needles in and hurt himself, but he showed no pain or concern.

    We will go back on Monday for another session. We are to try to get Willy to eat anything and everything -- especially fats. Poor Willy is down below 6 pounds. He was close to 15 in his prime.

    Keep those thoughts and prayers coming. I have faith that Rhoda is on the case lighting candles. I will keep you posted.

    Many loving thoughts and prayers and warm energies are being sent from us for dear Willy.

    I lit a candle for him, too.

    Prayers for Willy. I am glad he purred for this vet, and that the vet is not only nice, but listened to the but about the communicator.

    Whatever happens - you have done all you can for Willy. (Still hoping for a miracle to kick in!)
