Miss Myrna Loy Passed Away Wednesday, August 19,2015
I regret to inform you that Myrna Loy, the blog and Facebook page mascot, our heart patient cat with HCM (hypertrophicardiomyopathy) died this morning at 1:30 in the ER, in Novi, with me in the procedure room with her. She quickly went into arrest in the ER after having fluid removed and after being on oxygen and breathing better, but then having congestion quickly return, and she couldn't be resuscitated. It wasn't violent; she didn't have to be subjected to the meds that put animals to sleep (that caused Coopers death last year to be violent). She was six years, 4 months, and 27 days old. She had lived with the disease five years and nine months since first being diagnosed with heart disease after her first attack of CHF (congestive heart failure) at 8 months old. She was a joy and we will miss her.
