Flying Quilts and Pixie's Big Heart

First, I want to show the beautiful quilt that Millie's Mommie made! I love it. It is a very pretty pink color, and I can tell it was made with love. My Mommie put it right by my favorite window, so I can lay on it all the time. Thanks again for making such a beautiful quilt!
I have also discovered that it is perfect for relaxing on, and grooming. See, I have learned how to be modest and cover my "private" spots while I am grooming. Because I am a lady.
Then, I realized that the quilt is more than just for laying on. It is also a fun TOY! You can grab it, and rassle with it, and even bunny kick the quilt. And when you are done, you can take a nap on your toy.
And I have learned that Skeezix is getting the very same color quilt that I have! That is very exciting.

Pixie also went to the cardiologist last week for her 6-month heart check. The newest report says these things about my sister:

Diagnosis: Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Extremely severe left atrial dilation. Occasional atrial premature complexes. Suspect complex partial seizures. History of syncope with sinus arrest and ventricular escape rhythm.

Recommendations: Persistent severe structural heart disease is present and continues to present a high risk for congestive heart failure or blood clot formation. Her heart rate was significantly elevated during today's exam, raising the indication for use of a low-dose beta-blocker.

Echocardiogram: Moderate concentric left ventricular hypertrophy. Moderate mitral regurgitation with extremely severe left atrial enlargement. Mild decline in myocardial function. Increased endocardial echogenicity. Dynamic LVOT obstruction due to systolic anerior mitral motion.

Anyway, I have decided to try to be nicer to my sister since her heart hurts her. Maybe that will help her to get better! I hope so.

Hi Daisy,
that quilt is gorgeous. I know what you mean about rassling -- I do that too with an antique wool rug that we have in our house.

Pixie's heart disease is worrisome, isn't it? But it sounds like she's getting the best care and most importantly is that she is well-loved.

Dragonheart said...

Your quilt is beautiful Daisy! :) And you look lovely on it. :) Wonderful photos. :)

Poor Pixie. :( I hope that with her medications and all the good care she receives, she lives a long, happy life. She is in our thoughts and purrayers here.

Oh that's a beautiful quilt Daisy!! You are very lucky!! Whenever we want to rassle we just get another cat. But we can understand that you can't do that with Pixie since her heart hurts her.

It makes our hearts hurt to know that Pixie is so ill. We wish her all the best with her meds.

Oh, your quilt is quite beautiful! You look lovely on it, and I'm sure Skeezix will enjoy that pictures (although I'm sure he will be disappointed in you being so modest).

Poor Pixie. Wise of you to be nice to her. Good thing you are working on your MD, so you can help her out.

Poor Pixie! We say purrayers for her evry nite.

jake said...

The low dose beta blocker for Pixie may take some adjusting to but will hopefully make a difference and calm down the heart so it gets a nice rest.
Jake takes his and they have made him stronger but it took a while ... Be brave Pixie. We love the quilt Daisy!

We hope that Pixie is feelin' better. Our Fudge Ripple has a heart murmur that he's been living with for the past fourteen or so years since his diagnosis.

Mattingly said...

First of all Daisy you look beautiful on that quilt as you always do. And Pixie is in our thoughts and prayers at our house too. She is obviously one special and strong kitty to have made it through all she has. We just love her.

And we love you too. We just love your blog whether it's you or Pixie blogging. We love the stroller reports, all the pictures, the way you tell stories, and seeing all the talents you have! Our Mom's favorite post is the one where you showed the present you made your Dad for his birthday. We never found out what he thought about it, but we're sure he loved it. We look forward to your blog everyday to see what such a sweet kitty will be up to next. Thank you for your blog! Hugs and purrs from Mattingly and Harlie

PS... Harlie says thanks for being so kind about her hairball issue!

caspersmom said...

Such a pretty quilt Daisy and so versatile too. The colors are beautiful.

Pixie will be in our prayers. I hope with her medications she will stay stable and well for a long time to come.

Have fun with your quilt.

Casper

Awh geez, I sort of glad I don't understand the medical terms, but it sounds bad. I am very glad that your mammcat takes such good care of her. purrs....

The quilt is excellent! Thanks for sharing it!! Maybe you can teach Katie how to be more lady-like..? I think she could use a few pointers from a sophisticated cat like you.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

That's a lovely quilt - we're looking forward to receiving ours too. We're sending lots of cuddles and purrs to Pixie. Take good care of that sweet girl!

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Daisy, please give Pixie our love. She has a heart of gold and we hope she continues to do well on her medications. And, yes, be kind to her, and give her some space. But we know you're trying to do that anyway since you're the founder of the Pink Ladies.
