Sunday morning update:

I just called the hospital. Both boys are doing okay. Neither Miles or Pierro are eating anything... much. They are both still receiving IV fluids. They are having a blood test this morning and if Pierro's blood work comes back good - as it has been, then he can come home this evening. Miles is doing well, and will continue another day of fluids since he did indeed ingest lily parts and we want to insure that his kidneys are protected.
That is it really.
The doc that I spoke with today on the phone confused Pierro with Miles and I had a difficult time getting correct information. basically as true to their character, Pierro is sweet and submissive and Miles is nervous. Miles is so big and brave but he shakes pitifully when he is nervous. He is not hiding. Anyway, it was confusing today on the phone: which boy ate a little bit of grilled salmon and who was "polite" for examination. Don't they keep absolute records of this? Back in dino days when I did a few years of hospital nursing, we recorded every sneeze... Well, if they were in a very bad situation at this point I probably would have gotten upset about this, but I believe they are out of the woods and just staying in a very fancy hotel with supreme room service.

I slept like a log last night. It is so quiet in our house, but I am taking advantage of this situation and have bleached and scrubbed the bathtub haha
I hope everyone has a lovely day. I do believe we are completely "out of the woods" here. I just want my boys home, I do not even want to think of the $$bill. We will adjust and manage though, this is just one of life's bumps in the road - and we always learn from those bumpy things.

Life is a traveling to the edge of knowledge,
then a leap taken.

Whew - we are breathing a sigh of relief over here. So happy to hear both my buddies will be okay. You all have been through a scary thing. You would think since Pierro and Miles don't even look alike, the vet could keep thenm straight and who ate what. Makes you wonder!

Katnip Lounge said...

Oh Thank Goodness! This is very good news indeed. We think it's pretty funny not to be able to tell a cow kitty from an ornj one...maybe the vet is colorblind, hahameow!
Grilled salmon? hmmmm. Nope, we still would rather stay home.
We will keep Miles and Pierro in our purrs until they are both home and safe.
Bonks!

The news continues to be quite good. Well, except for the not knowing who is who part. I'd be annoyed about that, too. They are both separate patients, after all.

Hopefully, they will both be home and full of mischief before you can say boo.

Sorry but mum laughed when you said the doc you spoke to got the boys muddled up - they're not even the same colour!! It sounds as though you will probably have your boys home with you soon - bet the house seems too quiet and empty without them.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I am so glad they seem to be doing alright and we're still sending lots of purrs to calm their nerves!

Stacy Hurt said...

I'm with Trish. For pitys sake; they have all the info on the computers these days and forget they should actually look at the cat and the cats NAME. Oh we are so happy to learn they are doing better each day and will be home soon.

bonkiebronks to you all

Thanks for the good news update! We never doubted they'd both be okay and hope they're home soon!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

They probably do have this recorded somewhere but the doc probably didn't have it in front of him so I wouldn't worry about that. At any rate we are glad that things continue to go well and we will keep our purrs on!

Daisy said...

Oh my Cod! I just read the last couple of updates, and I am so glad I read this after both boys are already doing well. What a terrible scare! I hope they will be back home soon!

Sparkle said...

I'm VERY relieved to hear the boys are okay and that Pierro will be home soon, and then Miles. And I'm sure that they will be glad to be home too!

The Crew said...
