Praying for Emmi

From Kris:

Dear Catholic Stewards of Creation,

Thank you for your kindness in praying for pets.  My cat, Emmi, is in dire need of prayer and healing.  I adopted her 12 years ago — she is my first cat (first love), and has been my faithful companion and good friend.  They estimated that she was 2-3 years old when I adopted her, so she is somewhere between 14 and 15 years of age. She was diagnosed with kidney disease a year and a half ago.  We have adjusted to life with fluid injections every other day, which she tolerates well.  I was giving her massages with a massage tool, which really improved how she felt and she has been eating well.  She recently showed signs of a urinary tract infection two weeks ago and was not responding to the antibiotic.  When I took her back in, she was diagnosed with diabetes and ketoacidosis.  She was admitted to the pet hospital, where she stayed for four days.  I brought her home last night and she has not been doing well today.  She has been very lethargic and I can tell she is not feeling well. I have another call in to the vet.

I am willing to give her insulin treatments and fluid injections for however long I am blessed with her, but I do want her to feel well and regain her happy spirit.  They tell me it is very difficult to treat a cat with both kidney disease and diabetes.  It is possible, although they say not very likely, that the diabetes could go into remission. Please pray that my little Emmi will feel better — that if it’s possible, the diabetes will go into remission and that her body will rid itself of any toxins or infection, and that her body will repair itself.  I know that God loves his beautiful creation and he knitted together a very sweet cat who has been my best friend for many years.  Thank you for your prayers, and God bless you.

Kris

    Dearest Jesus, Emmi has been your gift to Kristine, an enduring love and beloved pet. Emmi has reached her latter years and has been having her share of health problems. So much of it has been met with Kristine’s willingness to get her the medical attention she needs. May You bless her for her sacrifice. Lord whatever is happening now, we place Emmi in Your hands. No matter what, she is where she needs to be. As You will it Lord, we pray for a miracle healing. We thank You for Your mercy and heavenly blessings. All glory to our Creator/God who loses nothing He has created and called good. Amen.
