Parker Pie Update

Hi everykitty and 'rent, Parker here. I know it's been a long time since I have posted on my blog, but there has been a reason. For the last few months I have not felt all that spiffy. I've been to Dr. Joe's more times than I care to remember and we've played "stump the experts" on just what is going on with me. I have been poked, prodded and x-rayed. Medicine and samples, research and worry. Last Friday Dr. Joe wanted to re-x-ray me. Less than a month ago all of my x-rays were clear. Friday they were not. It seems that I have a rather aggressive form of cancer by my tummy. It even made my blood pressure get high and now my pretty blue eye is not working anymore. I'm not in pain and I still have my famous appetite. I sleep a lot and I really love cuddles with the 'rents more than ever.
Dr. Joe and Mommy talked about my options. With surgery and drugs he thinks that it might provide me with just a little more time. Without the surgery and drugs, he is not sure how much time I have left in my body. He said weeks, or even months. The 'rents and I have decided that I'd much rather have some quality time at home without surgery and needles and medicine. If I am in pain, I'll have some medicine for that. And when I want to leave for the Bridge, I promised Mommy that I would tell her. Dr. Joe says that all we have to do is call and he will come here to help me on my journey. No more PTUs for me, no more car rides and no more going to the vet. I'm going to stay stress free and enjoy what precious time I have left with my awesome family.
I'm not going to lie about this, I am sad and so is the family. I hear the Bridge is an awesome place, but at 10 years old, I am the youngest kitty here. I still had things I wanted to do!
We'll still be blogging and providing updates. And if you could spare a prayer or two for us, it would be appreciated. The 'rents are taking this a lot harder than I am, and I think I feel the worst about that. I know that I am going somewhere awesome and I will always be with the 'rents in their hearts.
Big smoochies to all of you (I still give great smoochies!)

Oh Parker...my mom just told us the news and we are purring and purring for you and your 'rents. We know that you'll be well taken care of in your remaining days on earth...and wow do we have a family of Bridge Angels who will welcome you with open paws...Lewis who left us way too young as well (with a swift form of cancer) will be the first to give you a kiss and then will entertain you with his angel antics.

But then there are the 'rents who take this all so hard. We promise you Parker that we will be there for all of you.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Parker, we are so deeply saddened to read this. We wish we could write something that would help your beans, but we know there isn't anything to say. We are sending our loudest purrs and sending purrayers and will keep you all in our thoughts and hearts.

For the record, our mom thinks your beans are acting in YOUR best interests by allowing you to have quality of life for your remaining time with them, and not subject to you to terrible medical procedures that would rob you of that quality.

Hugs and kitty kisses and universal Light to you all.

Peace and Blessings.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh Parker! This just brings tears to our eyes too. Our purrs to your family for having to lose you so soon (at only ten) and our purrs to you for as much quality time as possible. There is nothing we can say. We have lost cats to cancer far too young and so we know that this is a very hard time for your family.

Forty Paws said...

Oh Parker! Maw is all weepy over this news! We know how difficult it is to lose one to cancer as we lost Gatsbi and Annie to cancer over the last year. This is a hard time for your 'rents, and it will be a hard time for your siblings too when you have passed over. Many hugs, purrs, purrayers, heavenly white light, warm thoughts, gentle smoochies, and soft pats to you.

Luf, Us and Maw

Missie Parker, we are heartbroken that you are sick, but pretty glad that you are not suffering. Oh my we are so sad too, for your family.
Yes, I think the bridge is a lovely wonderful place but we do not want you to have to go there.
We know your last months weeks or days here with us will be treasured. You are such a beautiful girl, and we will hold your paw through all of this.
For your beans, there is a lot of crying and sadness but for you, we know you will just get a lot of kisses and anything you like to eat, and boatloads of attention.
We are purring for all of you

Maggie May said...

*tears* we are so very sad to read this, Parker. We think quality time is a great option. It's the same decision our rents made when Cal got lymphoma. We think he was much happier spending his time at home, rather than at the vet. He also let us know when the time was right. Bless your sweet heart. We love you so much!

Sweet Parker we heard about you via the Zoolatry girls. We are so sorry to hear your sad news. We want you to know that we will be sending up prayers for you and your family. Hugs and nose kisses

Rose and the Royals said...

Our Dear Parker,
You are being so very brave, especially for your 'rents who We know first-hand would do anything in their power to take that dreaded disease away and bear it on their shoulders, as would Our QM.
YOU ARE SO RIGHT 'bout the Bridge! We have Sooo many Angels there of every description! Plenty of kittehs (Zuzu went there most recently-she's a lovely little calico) as well as QM's Horses, "Wimpy" and "Dial Mr. Hank"
(or just "Hank" to his furriends! He loves company and regularly rode kittehs and even ducks and chickens around Our yard before he needed to cross the Bridge).
Of course you and your 'rents have all Our warmest prayers and are in Out thoughts. We knew you very early on when we joined the CB...and We will know you when we next get the chance to go to that magical place, The Bridge, where We will play and sleep in abundant sun-puddles, awaiting the day our "rents are then seen, so we then can help them in their brand new journey and we will be together once more!
Gentle head-butts and many purrs to you, furriend!

Oh, Parker, you have all my purrs and prayers, the 'rents do, too! What a wonderful vet you have to offer to come to your home should you decide it's best to leave for your journey to the Bridge.

~*Connie*~ said...

I am so very sorry to hear this. Leaving before you are ready is one of the great sads of life. While it is nice that you won't have any more car rides, and I'm sure your mom will make this quality time wonderful, I hope it won't take you quite so soon and you are able to enjoy LOTS of quality time before you do.

Max said...

Aw man... Parker, I am really really sorry. We all know the Bridge is an awesome place, but that doesn't mean any of us are in a hurry to get there, so yeah, feeling sad about it seems right.

I hope that whatever time you have left is filled with light and that you don't have any pain, and that your mom and dad find lots of smiles with you.

Mostly, I'm really really sorry and selfishly hope we all have more time with you...

Parker! You are so brave. I agree with you that a short time with your family without lots of owie surgeries is much better than a long time where you feel all icky. I know that your journey will be at the right time and will be what you want, but I understand how sad your family is right now knowing that they have to say goodbye soon.

Sending lots of big mastiff hugs to all of you.

Simba said...

Parker Pie, we came from Admiral's blog to give you some loving purrs. Mommy has experienced such a thing with a couple of her kitties, and you and your parents are doing the good thing by not putting you through surgery and needles and everything. You and they will be sad to part, but the quality of the rest of your life will be better. We wish for the best for you now, and want your humans to know they are in our hearts.

Mark's Mews said...

Dear Parker - We were stunned and heartbroken to hear this sad news! When we tried to comment earlier today, we just couldnt do it; the sads were so strong.

You have been here all the time WE been around, and we know that you were one of Skeeter and LC's earliest and best friends. We will miss you so much!

We are glad there will be no more PTUs and car rides, needles or medicines; and we are glad to hear there will be no pain.

While hoping that you are able to stay with your Beins (and your CB friends) long as possible, we know that there will be a huge crowd over the Bridge to welcome you. And we know that Skeeter and LC will be as close to the front of the crowd as they can get!

Purrs to you and your Beins...

You're in my prayers,

My veterinarian, Dr. Jill Elliot, has been using homeopathy to treat cancer patients. There are no side effects--usually just taking some liquid solution by mouth and her patients generally have a much longer lifespan than they would untreated. I don't know your location, but you can discuss this with her by phone: http://nyholisticvet.com/ even if you are not in the area. Best of luck--I'll be thinking about you,
Cynthia

We is sorry to hear this and hope that your time is long and pain-free, so that your 'rents have some time to love you and store up their memories of you to help fill their hearts when you're gone to the Bridge.
And, what an awesome Dr. you have that he would come to see you off when you are ready for your journey. For that alone, he should be blessed.
So, with tears in mommy's eyes, we wish you well, both now as you and your 'rents enjoy each others company and when the time comes for you to journey on.
