Thai news-

Sorry for the delay in the Thai news- we were dognapped and were forced to go to Cleveland again yesterday, for THE WHOLE DAY!  What's Her Name recevied word late Tuesday afternoon that she needed to undergo MORE TESTS for her surgery and they were scheduled for the next day.  The lady who called was wonderful- she scheduled everything for one day instead of What's her Name making five more trips to CLeveland before the big day.  Dad had to go since What's Her Name was not allowed to drive home after the EGD (where a camera goes down her throat- major yuckies)  Anyhoo-  due to the late notice, we were forced to go with them and spend the day in the car!  We were well supervised- we were only left alone for a couple of hours at a time and Dad spent most of his time with us working while What's Her Name was poked and prodded by all sorts of doctors and nurses.  We did not get home till after 7 last night and MOM insisted on MacDonald's for us since we were so good- no messes in the car (OK, Thai pooped on his blanket, but Mom says that did not count) At least while What's Her Name is in the hospital for two days, we have a babysitter- Mr. Steve the floorman will be guarding and spoiling us while Dad is with Mom at the hospital. 

Back to Thai- his cortisol is UP again- it is now 8.7, up from 6.3 the week before.  His weight is no 21.9, up from 20.4 the week before.  What's Her Name is in tears over this- the Verotyl is a new drug that is supposed to work even better than the Lysodren.  It appears that there is a tumor since the cortisol levels are going up unabated.  Thai will remain on the medications, and he is still a happy, green bean and treat snarking tough guy, who sits on Mom's lap in the car now- he fusses so much that she sits in the back holding all three of us on her lap!

Governor Puddles. Thai is ready when you are!

Thanks for all the kind thoughts for Thai- it is breaking our hearts that the medicines are not stopping the cortisol.

What's Her Name is having a gastrci bypass on the 22nd- she is tired of being fat!
