The Rockett Fund
Care & I wanted to say another thank you to everyone.
Its hard to believe it has only been two weeks. Last night I stood on the roof of my NYC apartment and was amazed to see a sky full of stars piercing through the light pollution.
Though Rockett's time here is finished his work here has not. I am planning on using his story to help touch the lives of others and promote the saving and adopting of animals in need.
I would also like to send a more personal thank you so if you sent me your mailing address I would really appreciate it. You can send it to either my email firstname.lastname@example.org or through facebook message.
Last night I lost my buddy, my sidekick, my partner in crime. Last night Care and I sent Rockett on his journey to the moon.
There are just some relationships in life that are truly exceptional. We were lucky enough to have Rockett in our lives for exactly one year. In those 365 days he burrowed his way deep into our hearts and connected with us in ways we didn't know were possible. Most of you know Rockett as a silly kitty with a gorgeous face and hilarious personality but he is so much more. I wish you could experience even just a days worth of his love and connection he shared with us.
Rockett loved, comforted, and taught us so many things without saying a word.
We want to again thank everyone for their support in helping us, your kind words and encouragement really helped show how much Rockett meant.
We are thankful that we could share his incredible ability to touch our hearts.
Anyone who has donated and would still like a desk calendar of Rockett be sure to email me.
The Bad News: Although it was good to hear that the ultrasound had not found any fluid or tumors (semi good news) Rockett's liver and kidneys are significantly larger then they should be.
This is due to an infiltration of cells to these organs which is common for a FeLV "crisis" in the body and if not already can lead to lymphoma (cancer).
The Good News: There are steps we can take to help Rockett defeat this "crisis." If he wins this round he should return to his normal vacuum loving, skateboard riding, ping pong playing self. That is until the next "crisis."
Right now we have him receiving injections of electrolytes and other hydration fluids daily (at home), he is also taking Prednisolone, herbal medication and neuro-liquids for immune support.
Sounds like a lot but he is a champ and we have high hopes.
We will certainly keep you posted on his status and recovery!
JJ, Care, & Rockett
We have Rockett scheduled for an Ultrasound first thing Monday morning.
He is hanging in there and we will keep you all updated on his status.
JJ, Care, & Rockett
