I went and saw the Critter today and he look completely different than he did on Sunday. He was walking about, wagging his tail, and even stood up on his hind paws so that he would be picked up. He was not as lethargic as he had been in the past four days, and much more awake and active.

The doctor said that there is a small chance for recovery. While the last transfusion did not elevate his white cell count to normal numbers, a second transfusion might do the trick. The vet explained to me that the second transfusion might kick-start his medulla a get it to start producing white blood cells again.

I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all your prayers and thoughts. The only thing we need from our end are those same prayers you've so kindly said on the Critter's behalf.

God bless you and Merry Christmas.

I'm so glad to know he's feeling better, even if the doctor isn't able to make a call on his prognosis. It's so hard to see our pets uncomfortable.

I'll continue to pray for him, Tom! You should know that the first thing I do when I wake up is check for Critter updates.

I was happpy to read that Crittter is rallying; please, God, let little Critter have a complete recovery, for with You, all things are possible.
Tom, I know that this will be a difficult Christmas for you, so I am wishing you a blessed Christmas, and a big hug for you and Critter.
I will continue to pray for both of you.
