Well Joey has a fold in his duodenum which is preventing him from holding down his food. So I give him 3 tablespoons of canned Pinnacle holistic food with a handful of kibble. Every two to three hours. And so far today he has kept food down. But how long do I do this for? Joeys spirits are higher than mine if you can imagine.
*Sigh I just cannot imagine my life without him so I do what I can but its so hard when you are by yourself and I have no help.
I just wanted to give you an update that thankfully its not cancer. I go back in 2 weeks for a new blood test to test his enzymes in his liver. So there it is. I think its congentital and he was born with it. If there is anybody out there that might have information, please contact me at and I will read anything you can offer me.
Thank you for all of your love and support it means so much to me you just dont know!!! Joey saved my life and I want to save his!!!!

Thank You for Your Prayers!!!!!

I took Joey today for his emergency ultrasound and NO TUMOR was found and he has NO CANCER!!!!! Its was because of you and Joeys Guradian Angels and I cant thank you enough!!!!! It is a problenm with his liver enzymes that can be treated with medication and I am getting milk thistle to help cleanse his liver. The reason he cant digest his food is because he has a "bump" on his duodenem that is preventing food to reach his tummy, so thats why he has been throwing up for the past three weeks and he cant hold food. He has lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks!!!! The vet said to give him small portions of food during the day. Today so far so good as I got him some canned food that is soft and easy to digest. If you have heard anything like this before please contact me for advice!!! But THANK YOU for all of your prayers and well wishes for my Joey. I think we are going to be ok (I hope). I cant tell you how much your support has meant to me and helped me get through today. THANK YOU!!!! From the bottom of my heart!!!!

I Really Need Your Prayers!!!!

Please help me pray for Joey!!!! He hasnt been eating and what he does eat he throws it up! He has lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks and the vet says something wrong in his liver. His liver test is:

AST 100 normal is 15 to 66

ALT 881 normal is 12 to 118

ALK Phos 292 normal is 5 to 131

GGT 35 normal is 1 to 12

Bile test is 60.1 and normal is less than 25

I tried to feed Joey yesterday and he seemed to keep the 1/4 cup kibble down so I gave him a little more after 2 hrs and he threw everything up! I called the vet crying and he said he can get the ultrasound people to come in today at 10 am!!! So I have to leave my baby there for 2 hours. It will be the longest 2 hours of my life. The situation has gotton worse in the last 2 days and Joey is going down hill, fast. I cant tell you the heartbreak I am currently experiencing as he is only 4 years old and this just cant be happening. So, please I need prayers for Joey!!! Please!!!!
