First received Wednesday, May 20, 2020
For Dakini, a sixteen-year-old cat in Parker, Colorado with a damaged right eye, a mass on her thyroid, and high blood pressure who may not be strong enough for surgery to remove the eye or the cancer; and for her human family....[May 21] Dakini received a three-day pain shot and antibiotics on Wednesday. Her vet is recommending fluids to be administered at home to see if her kidney function could improve enough for surgery. She will go back to the vet for another pain shot on Friday. The vet has promised that Dakini's humans could be present for euthanasia (an exception to their coronavirus protocol) if that is what will be the best for Dakini...[May 27] Dakini has been receiving time-released pain shots for her eye every three days. Her vet advised seeking additional medical opinions. Dakini and her humans spent the afternoon today at a specialist vet. They were sent home with four kinds of eye drops and an appointment for surgery next Tuesday as long as Dakini can be seen by either a cardiologist and or an internal specialist to address her heart disease, blood pressure and possible thyroid tumor. The tumor seems to be the least concern at the moment as her thyroid levels are within normal range. Dakini has a good appetite and seems to be coping very well. The opthalmologist thinks it best to see if medication will regularize her blood pressure and heart rate so that Dakini can get through the anesthesia needed for the surgery to remove her damaged eye....[May 30] Dakini had an echo cardiogram at a veterinary specialist today who said that although Dakini's blood pressure is a bit elevated, her heart function is normal. The surgery to remove Dakini's right eye is scheduled for Tuesday morning, June 2, if an anesthesiologist is available. Continued support for Dakini and her humans as she receives her daily eye drops, medications and fluids.
Update Tuesday, June 2, 2020
Dakini made it through the surgery to remove her eye. She is at home and doing very well. Continued support for her during the next two weeks of recovery, after which she will return to see the ophthalmologist for a follow-up appointment.

For ninety-year-old Marge H. in Highlands Ranch, Colorado who fell and is in the hospital awaiting surgery tomorrow or Thursday on her broken left hip; and for her daughter and grandson...[April 10] "Marge's surgery went very well. She has transferred to the nursing home and rehab center on the campus of her senior living complex. The nursing home has not had any reported cases of coronavirus. Marge has been in pain after the surgery and between her pain medications and the residual side effects of anesthesia she is not very clear yet. Her doctor says she is doing extremely well. She may be in the nursing home for one to two weeks before she can return to her apartment." [April 16] Blood tests showed that Marge was low in hemoglobin. She was transferred back to the hospital this morning (April 16) for a blood transfusion. The doctors may do more tests to see if they can find and correct the cause of her blood loss. After the transfusion she was much more cogent and feeling much less pain from her healing hip. The doctors anticipate that she will return to the nursing home in a couple of days....[April 18] Marge felt so much better after the blood transfusion that she decided to avoid returning to the nursing home and go directly back to her independent living apartment. The doctors did not do any other procedures in the hospital. They think the bleeding was minor and probably due to the combination of blood thinners and aspirin she was taking. They have recommended that she discontinue both medications and see if the bleeding stops. She arrived home this evening with the help of a private nursing service. Marge will have 24-hour private nursing support for the next several days. Because she was in a hospital setting, the authorities at her living complex are putting a quarantine sign on her door until at least May 1.

She is happy to be home in familiar surroundings with excellent quality of care. She will still need occupational and physical therapy when arrangements can be made after the weekend...[April 21] Marge's pain from the hip fracture is now minimal.  Her nurses have been a wonderful support. Today she had a teleconference with her doctor and her daughter to discuss medications and further care support. The doctor ordered physical therapy. An intake counselor has already been to Marge's unit to get the PT started. Marge told her doctor that when she woke up today she was actually glad to be alive...[May 15] Marge has been recuperating at home in her own condo with round-the-clock private caregivers who are authorized to come onto her senior living campus while her family is not because of the pandemic. Friends have invited Marge to stay with them a few hours away from Denver for an indefinite number of months. Marge's grandson will drive her there with the help of a caregiver on Saturday, May 16. Support for a smooth trip for Marge and that she be able adapt to her new surroundings and another 1800 feet of altitude. Marge's family will be able to visit her as often as they wish at the friends' house.
Update Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Her hospital stay was very frightening as she had limited contact with her family. No visitors were allowed due to coronavirus concerns. It was difficult for her to talk due to the intubation and the side effects from anesthesia so she could rarely use a phone. She will need some time to recover from the surgery and the hospital experience.... [April 1] "Shirley's voice and energy level are greatly improved. She has painful lumps in her face from the position she was in for the two-hour carotid artery surgery. It will take weeks for these to disappear.

Her pressure sore continues to heal, but is too painful to wear shoes. An x-ray of her leg is needed to determine the healing status. State virus conditions must improve before this can be done.
