WE JUST BROUGHT THOR BACK HOME

Friday, March 16, 2012

Hi Dear Friends,

Thor is now home in his final earthly resting place. Dr. Gail thinks it was his pancreas that shut down. He had a major seizure and may have had a stroke as well so he is in a much better place now.

Thank you all for your beautiful words of comfort and the sympathy goodie messages. You all make it easier when I read those beautiful words. There are just too many to respond to each one individually, but please know everyone was read and cherished. I will never forget how much you loved Thor and how you interacted with him though "his" blogs.

In time we'll be able to open our hearts to another kitty who needs a good home and lots of love but God will show us when that time is right.

Love to you all,
Elayne

    So glad that Thor is not suffering and is home but also know that he is waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. He will always be extra special to you and a part of your heart will always belong to him. But with a heart as big as yours, the Lord will let you know when you are ready for another furbaby.
Blessings and hugs to you and Arjay,
Helen

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....



So sorry for your loss. emoticon

R.I.P. DEAR THOR

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Hi dear friends,

This is the hardest blog I have had to write since my Mom died almost 2 yrs ago. Thor went over the Rainbow Bridge about 10:30 tonight. Dr. Gail was with him. I am so grateful he wasn't alone. She had been with him most of the day. His blood sugar this morning was so high it didn't even register. Then it came down to 500 and something. He had a seizure a few hours ago but wasn't responding to anything. His blood sugar came down to the 300's late in the day but it was just too late.

We have so many wonderful memories of him. I can see him laying here on my desk nest to me..taking up part of the keyboard! I see him walking me to the rug in the living room to be brushed. I see him walking me to the bathroom so I'd turn on the water in the sink so he could drink from it. I see him looking up at me with those beautiful eyes of his. I feel him poking me in my side trying to get my attention when I was at the computer. The longer he had to wait, the harder the poke got. It was so funny. I see him sticking his head through the bind behind the TV and then turning to see if I was watching him then he'd jump down when I stood up. That was his way of getting food every night at 10 pm while his Daddy had his snack.. a bowl of ice cream. Thor did this every single night. I know I'll "feel" him jump up on the bed with me tonight and many nights after. He will be there in spirit.

Arjay and I both said our own private prayers tonight that God take him so he wouldn't have to suffer anymore. Neither one of us knew about that until we told one another after Dr. Gail's phone call. We were going to have him put to sleep and had the appointment made for 2 pm tomorrow afternoon. God answered our prayers. I am just so sorry I didn't get to see him one more time but that wasn't to be.

Do I believe Thor has a soul and that he is now in Heaven. Yes I do. He's there with Tyke, Taffy, Tiger, Sandi and Snowball. He's there with all of the wonderful Spark fur babies that have gone on before him and they are all playing together. I look forward to the day when we will meet again and never be separated again.

Thank you all so much for your love, prayers and concerns. Thor felt very special having his own blog and being part of the Spark Community.

With love,
Arjay and Elayne emoticon

    Elaine,
I'm so sorry to hear about Thor! I've fallen behind with my Spark friends due to some difficulties of my own and didn't realize he had crossed the bridge. Seamus is going to miss him, they were good friends.

But now I see you have Max and it will be great getting to know him. Thor will still be in our hearts, but we look forward to meeting Max.

    Elayne,

I didn't realize I never commented on this blog when you first posted it. I don't know why, but I thought about Thor today. How much pleasure I always got out of his posts and how he shared his "view" of the world with all of us. I love that you are carrying on the tradition with Max. You share your lives with very special furbabies indeed.

I just wanted to say thank you for all that you share with us, and I do agree... They are all most certainly playing happily together at the Rainbow Bridge.

HUGS,

Richell

    Oh Elayne, I'm so truly sorry for you and Arjay. Thor was such a fighter and such a charming kitty. A kitty couldn't have special ordered better parents than you. I went through this with my diabetic Barracuda and know how difficult the daily monitoring and worrying and care can be. Big Thor is, indeed, in a better place.
You are in my prayers, big hugs, Kim and the Philly Phurballs (I'm up to 5 now...latest addition is about 4 months old, a scrawny little black kitty I've finally named Jesse "Buckwheat" James, Junior. Don't ask, it's complicated, but it fits!)

I am so sorry for your loss. I too am typing this with tears in my eyes. It is so hard to lose one we love and our furbabys are so very special and dear to us. I really think of them as a gift from God to us.
I only knew Thor through Sparkspeople but he was a very Dear and Special Friend to my little Shortie when I first joined SP 3 years ago and I read every blog Thor wrote and comment Thor sent Shortie aloud to him until he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Thor was a great comfort to me when I lost Shortie. Even to this day there are times when I feel Shortie with me.
I know my Shortie will be there along with Tyke, Taffy, Tiger, Sandi and Snowball to meet Thor.
I will miss his positive blogs, he always made me smile.
I wish I knew something to say to make this easier for you, to take away some of the pain I know you feel at his loss but there just aren't any words that can do that.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Rest In Peace Thor.

WED, MAR. 14 UPDATE

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Hi everyone,

Just got off the phone with Nick. They ran kidney and liver blood tests and those numbers were still high but have come down since the last time they were done about a year ago. Thor is still not eating so he is getting fluids a few times a day via an IV. He didn't even flinch when the inserted that. He did vomit about a half hour after the insulin but I'm not surprised since he's not eating. Dr. Gail did increase the insulin to 4 units once a day. He's still lethargic, and you can tell he just doesn't feel good. BUT, he still hisses and growls when they pick him up to do anything but that's about it. He never does anything else though.

Please keep those prayers and good wishes alive. He needs them. Thanks!

Love,
Elayne emoticon

AN UPDATE ON THOR

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Hi there to all our Spark friends, both human and furry.

Thor wanted me to write and tell you that we had to change insulin and he's having a difficult time adjusting. We switched him last Wednesday and he stayed in the animal hospital until Sat. morning so he could be watched. When we left Sat his blood sugar was 344. He's on 3 units once a day of this new human insulin. When we brought him home he wasn't very hungry and I couldn't even get 1/4 cup of food into him. The same thing on Sunday and Monday. Today he didn't eat at all this am and he was very sluggish. He walked over to his water dish and laid his head down on the rim of the dish. I called Dr. Gail and Nick said to bring him right in and we re-admitted him. He was going to get fluids by IV and be watched. His last blood sugar today was 303, so at least it has come down some. We knew it would be a challenge because we're starting from scratch to get him regulated with the new insulin. He'll be in the hospital until Friday night or Sat. morning. Nick is there until noon Sat when they close for the weekend but Dr. Gail's house connects onto the hospital which is a good thing. I feel confident we'll get him regulated once again. It's just so hard to have to leave him there and to see those sad eyes. emoticon

P. S. The good news is that he's lost 2 pounds. He's now 21.6. He needs to lose weight, but not this way.

PSST..IT'S ME, THOR

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Hi Ya'll. That's southern for you all in case you didn't know it. I have some good news...Went to see Nick today as it's been 8 weeks since I set my paws inside Dr. Gail's office. My blood sugar was 98. Yep, you read that right..98. Last time it was 180 so we were really pleased. Now I won't have to go back for another 8 weeks unless Mom notices me acting funny. Not sure what she means by that but I guess she knows. Guess I better go as Mom says she want to piggy back onto MY blog..the nerve of her. That's ok,,I love her anyway.
Love,
Thor

Here's Mom now...

Hi everyone, Yep, It's me. Thor's mommy. I am happy about Thor's numbers today. Had to share that news for sure.

I went to the human Dr. yesterday as I was still wheezing after coming off the steroids on Feb 4. He's changing my meds around..took me off Asthmanex and put me on Advair. Putting me on the generic for Singulair which I had been on a long time ago. He also is putting me on breathing treatments with my nebuliizer as needed up to 4 times a day. That uses Albuterol.
He said I'll be on this regime for a long time. He also told me that I may have reached the point with my copd that I may not be wheeze free any longer. He doesn't want to keep me on Prednisone (a steroid) due to all the side effects and I don't blame him. I also went for a chest x-ray this morning for my asthmatic cough. I appreciated his honesty and so we deal with the new treatment and see what happens. I'm really ok with it as I know God is in control...and all will be well. I better get better as I have to sing a duet on Sunday. My singing isn't usually affected so I hope it won't be Sunday.

Poor Arjay is sick now with the junk that's going around. Hope he gets better soon.

Our church had a wonderful concert last Friday night. The Collingsworth Family came and sang and played and they were awesome. We had over 400 people there and they were standing in line at 4 pm and the doors didn't open until 6. We were very uplifted with their music. I bought 2 cd's and when I got home I discovered one of the cases was minus a cd! That happens, so I wrote them an e-mail and they were so sorry and are sending me another one out right away. I knew they would make it right.

Our next concert is March 10 when we host the group "Soul'd Out". Hope it will be a success as well.

Well, that's about it from the House of Morgan . Have a good rest of the night everyone.

Love,
Elayne

    WTG, Thor - your mom does take such good care of you.

Hope you continue to feel better, Elayne. I'm taking Singulair myself these days.

    Great numbers, Thor! Elayne, here's hoping you and Ajay are soon feeling much better. Sounds like there is lots of good music in your area. Enjoy, as music lifts the spirits when the body is not feeling up to par.

    CONGRATULATIONS, THOR!!! You and Mommy are dong an AWESOME job!! Keep it up. Purrfectly!!!

Elayne, Sure hope that your new treatments will work for you. That is similar to the combination that Ken is on...no Predisone but Advair, singulair, spiriva, and an inhaler. They have made a huge difference in his breathing. Praying that you and Arjay are both feeling better really soon.
So glad you had such a great turnout Friday evening. Enjoy your CDs.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

    emoticon Thor. I'm so happy for you. And I'm sure you Mom is too.

I'm also happy for you, Elayne, Getting off Prednisone is good for you. I've been using Advair for about eight years now and it has helped me a lot.

Take care and have a good night.

    Good job Thor! I am missing your canine buddy Jessie, but we won't be able to add a new family member for awhile. We travel quite a bit in our RV and want to wait to adopt another family member until we finish two long trips we have planned for the next couple of years.

Elayne - I hope the medication changes are helpful to you and that Arjay feels better soon.

    Great work Thor, I'm proud of you. I know it's been rough, but it's worth it knowing you can be healthy and possibly be around longer now that you're getting healthy.

Elayne,

I am glad that you're off the Predisone now, it helps, but it is a bad thing to have to be on, especially for a long time. I have to be on it for my skin every so often as there is little else to help. I have used Advair in the past and it really helped me with my asthma. I'll be praying for you that something can help you with the COPD and for Arjay to feel better soon.

Have a good night and give Thor some spark love for me, would you?

Kristy
