Foster Friday: Amelia Health Update!

It's me!  Amelia!

See my beautiful face?
The foster lady tooks me on a nice long car ride yesterday!  I was all excited that we were going on a special adventure with just the two of us.
Do you know where our car ride lead?  Do you know what turn my fun adventure would be taking?  She took me to the VETS!
So, as soon as I got outs of the car, I put my brakes on and said NO NO NO NO NO!  Then the foster lady picked me up and carried me into the vets.  Once I was in there, though, and all the nice peoples were telling me that I was beautiful and so brave... well, I guess it wasn't that bad.
You has cookies?
Then the nice lady came out and said my room was ready and gave me smoochies and said my name in a really nice voice my tail just wagged and wagged.  I decided I was try to walk on this scary floor and down the hall I went!  Then, I got a cookie!  I loves cookies.
Then, I heard my doctors voice and I just couldn't help it.  My butt wiggled and wiggled! I just knew he was coming in to see ME!  And he was!  Because he came right through that scary door!   I went up to him and gave him lots of lovings because I likes him a lot.  He kept petting me and loving me and telling me how wonderful I was!  He asked the momma some questions while he was loving on me.  I was so happy that I didn't even notice he was trying to distract me so he could put that scary listen-to-my-insides thingy on me!  Well, I wasn't falling for his tricks and as soon as I saw that scary device, off I went!  I pancaked right under the chairs.  So, Dr. Farrell decided he'd do my exam from under there if that's where I felt safe.
I doesn't like scary things.
Turns out that scary listen-to-my-insides thing isn't so scary... and my ears were getting some real good scratches while it was on me, so I let it all happen.  Dr. Farrell says I looks GREAT!  I have lots of the beautifuls and my fur is nice and soft and my heart rate has gone down a whole lot!  He said I went from 165 beats per minute to 140 and that was a great improvement!  He also took me off my leaky bladder medicine, because I've been doing super well and it turns out that medicine isn't so great for my heart condition. 
Happy, healthy 'Mielsya!
All and all, Dr, Farrell says I looks great and my heart sounds great and he's super happy with my progress!  He said I don't even have to go back for my scary heart ultrasound until next year! And, I gets to keep playing with the Corbin's because he says I've been in super awesome shape! Hehe. Why, yes, I do have athletic, slim figure. Thanks for noticing!

It's on, foster brother!
