    4/17 in MannieLand

    4/17 RECAP
    4/17 fuds: AM & PM cycle: catsip, no appy
    4/17 amps HI : 2nd cycle on this dose (.75), catsip
    +1 fed catsip
    +2 HI fed catsip
    4/17 pmps HI: 1st cycle on this dose (1.00), catsip
    +2 HI

    4/18 amps HI: 2nd cycle on this dose (1.00)

    Yesterday was a difficult day in MannieLand. BG's remain off the charts, mobility and muscle strength have worsened, and appy has just disappeared. We've tried all we can think of to entice Mannie to eat to no avail. He really has not had anything substantial in a couple of days, short of the catsip, and that he is now refusing. The pred really does not seem to be helping. Mannie gets maybe one I sorta feel better hour after getting the med, but then we are back to the fact that he simply does not feel good. We will see how the morning goes. I need to face the fact that it just may be his time, as sad and as heartbreaking as that is for me. This is his call, his dance. I will be there for you Mannie, that is a promise. Mannie - here's to you. Lubs ya big guy! cat_pet_icon

    All is well in MannieLand. :D :D I spent so much time with him last night. He is at peace, and content. When Nicholas and I were headed out he stopped just before leaving the house, ran back in to give Mannie a pet. As sick as he is Mannie still manage to give Nicholas that patented squinty-eyed look he does. It was a very sweet moment. Mannie spent most of the day sleeping in his bed, just chillin'. We did get a little sun yesterday, so I took him outside for a bit. He relaxes so when he is there, soaking up those rays. For him, life is good. :D LB is normal as it can be right now, Ketones tests have been negative. Test was good this morning. :cool: a new Normalcy in MannieLand.

    Have a great day everyone! I am back on DGS duty for the rest of the week. Today will be an outdoor day for Nicholas, hopefully a river or a creek. WOO HOO! Well, we hope that it is... rains stay away! Paws crossed on the weather! I hope to visit condos when time permits, it is so tough to do while he is here. I will miss you guys! Think blue, think green kitties!

    Hey everybody! What's up? Besides my BG's that it - they is always up! heeheehee, gotta work on that! You guys into a treehouse day? or a radiator day? I kinda just wanna spend the day with my friends. Maybe we an take a short road trip, top down on the roadster, let the wind whip through our whiskers some. SWEET! You guys in? let me know - I am ready for anything!! ~~ Mannie

    And completely OT: Here's the Picassa link to the photos from DGS,and my adventure yesterday: Swimming and the trail by the pool, including a couple of videos. Here's the link: Swimming, Pool Trail

    Morning Michelle and Mannnie, lots of vines and prayers ongoing. I'm so sorry to hear the pred or Mirtz are not helping. Does he seem in pain or just extremely weak/lethargic? I am glad he enjoyed the yard and catching those sunbeams. So sweet with DGS going back for one more pet and loving Mannie. Awww....on the squinty eyes! :D Mannie, you are the best as even when you are not feeling good, you still bring on the coffee, and Pike's Place Market are my favorite Beans. Thank you for the Triple Espressos, love ya, Auntie Ann.
    Hugs and prayers for a comfortable day for Mannie
    The pics of DGS are great and capture how much fun he is having with swimming and the outdoors. I caught some yesterday, too.

    Mannie, yeah Treehouse and Rusty's radiator sound fun with the road trip, too. I'll be waitin at the same spot, Mags

    Good morning Michelle and Mannie. Healing vines and peace coming your way from Tulsa. My heart is breaking with yours. Mannie is definitely in charge and will let you know. So sweet with Nicholas and the petting. Mannie does love him so much and looks forward to seeing him. Have a good time at the pool and whatever you are able to squeeze in. We will check back in on you later today and be thinking about you all day long. ((((Michelle)))) Give the big guy a big kiss and some scritches from Auntie Melissa.

    Hi Michelle,
    I send all the perfection vines and prayers i have, but Mannie is already perfect and you are as close as hoomans get. You two are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. I hope there are some glorious sunbeams for the two of you to enjoy this afternoon.

    MohcaMannie! There's only one thing better than your morning coffees!!! That's seeing you come down the street dancing, singing and snapping your fingers. May i have a scone today with my espresso and mocha? Waiting in the driveway for you my sweet barista!!! I love you Mannie.

    Mannie! Man, that is one cool roadster. I love how it gets bigger and bigger so we can all squeeze in. I'm ready for the treehouse and radiators. Maybe we can have some more of those crispy spiders for lunch. Then, lets drive your roadster all the way around the world and watch the sun come up a bunch of times!!! love you dude...oliver

I check on you guys every day and will continue to....I have to have my Mannie fix even if it isn't always the best news. I know, as always, you're doing the best for him.

    Michelle,

    Cherish the moments, cherish the love and know that you are not alone. You have an entire family right here feeling the pain along with you.



    Hey Mannie,

    I'm sorry that Maui can't come out to play today. She is still at the hotel, yeah that's right, the hotel, waiting for the tooth shuttle! I was told that she and Buster enjoyed their suite, got room service, pampering treatments and lots of fuds.

    Of course, when she comes home later, she will need KTSS big time. So, maybe you can gather the troops to come over tonight to help her and Buster too of course.

    Thanks for today's tea. It's the bestest and I can't wait for my afternoon frappe - I LOVE Chocolate.

    As for me, I'll keep sending prayers and appy/strength vines for my favorite Mannie. I love his eternal search for the sunbeams :D and his love for you and Nicholas...squinty eyes and all. Hugs and love to you, Michelle. And snuggles and scritches to the Big Guy, Mannie!

    Hi Michelle - I am so saddened to read your condo today that the meds aren't doing much and Mannie's appy is falling off. But it is heartening to hear that he still enjoys soaking up the rays, and that still a sign that life still has some goodness in it and worth the purrs. It is very sweet that Nicholas ran back to Mannie - he is a special boy to be that friend to Mannie, and vice versa. We have a dreary rainy day here, and that's cause Leo grabbed all the sun beams and sent them out to Mannie. We'll have rain so Mannie can have sun, handsome boy.

    Yo yo yo Mannie my Man! I want to chillax today, but I have to wait until tonight. I have that Box of Terrors thing today, but mamabean says it will be the last one! So I comes over later when I get back home! Soak up the suns, dude. ~Your best bud, Leo

    I'd also send you any sunbeams if we had them, but I suspect we'll both have to wait until tomorrow. In the mean time, it's a great day for fleece snuggling in beds, the same is going on here. Please pass on extra scritches, pats and hugs to Mannie from us.

    Mannie - I just had to try the mocha today since it's your beans favorite, and now I understand why. It's delish!

    Hello everyone! It was been a great day with Nicholas, at a local creek, exploring. We ended up taking his mom out to lunch today too. Double fun! The time out today was fun. We left Mannie on his fleece, sleeping. He was still in his post when we returned. He is non-responsive, with no interest in food or water, or even getting up. I have petted him, told him he was loved by so many, gave him scritches on his ear. I told him I would help hm, and at that moment he closed his eyes: I had my sign, There have been no shots today, no pills, no tests. He is content. Early this evening he will be allowed to cross to the Bridge, with quiet dignity and grace. I owe him this much. Freedom from an failing body. Already I miss him.

    THANK YOU EVERYONE !(!!) who has visited today: Wendy, Lisa, Deborah, Hillary, Michelle, Ann, Patty, Jo, Ella, Mary, Barb, Liz, Anne, Melissa, Devon, Ann, Tena, Carla, Terri, and Josie. You guys are simply the best! I have read all to Mannie, and I do believe he heard them all. He has fought a valiant battle, and in a way I do believe he won. His way, his terms, his choice. What a trooper he is. I wish I knew what else to say. You all have been the best, have given so much of yourselves, and I am eternally grateful. THANK YOU to all of LL!

    OH that bean! What will I do with her! It is a sunny day here in LL and us kitties have things to do. Top is down on the roadster, the tree house and the radiators await us. The BMG feels a need to do its thing. So kitties, my friends! let's roll! Winds in our whiskers , the world is ours for the taking. Let's roll ~ Mannie

    Mannie, what a great day for a roadster trip! Sun, wind, road...then tree house and radiators,
    hanging out with all of the LL kitties! Simply PURRRFECT.

    For you:
    Tree House

    A tree house, a free house,
    A secret you and me house,
    A high up in the leafy branches
    Cozy as can be house.

    A street house, a neat house,
    Be sure and wipe your feet house
    Is not my kind of house at all--
    Let's go live in a tree house.

His heart, his spirit and yours will always be one. I cry because my heart hurts as he begins his new journey. .i can only know the tiniest bit of how deeply your heart hurts. Saying farewell to one so very special takes my breath away. I pray for you both tonight. Take deep care my dears. The world belongs to both of you now and always

    MochaMannie... fly free and happy across forever. We'll meet now and then in the midst of the one celebration that can never end. I love you my sweet barista. Land softly, go grab the world...it is yours

    Mannie, we'll get the wind in our wiskers. You are right, let's roll. We go grab the world! i love you dude. Oliver

    Michelle, I'm also sending tons of prayers your way, my friend. Have you talked to the vet about taking him off the pred, or is it a necessity for Mannie to have? (sorry I haven't been fully reading up on what all meds he needs for what). It may help to lower his BG's... That and in order to get him to eat, you may have to begin syringe feeding him to help him get some strength back. I honestly don't know what to say to help... :( I wish there was a magic wand to help him get back to his normal Mannie self, and make him feel better again. {{{{{{{{{{MICHELLE & MANNIE}}}}}}}}}}

    Oh Michelle,

    It is time. Remember to give him his snot halo to send him on his journey with dignity and love. Fly free Mr. Mocha Mannie Man, you are so much loved by all those near and far. May you cross in peace and wrapped in the arms of love. We love you and miss you already.

    The kittehs will play and sing in your honor, listen to their heartfelt love songs that will help you cross to the bridge and meet up with all those that have gone before and are waiting for the BMG, Mocha Manster to arrive and start his delivery service.

    It truly is sad, we all love the Nanner King, Kitteh Barista and Chef de Cuisine of LL - Mannie is going to have a whole new set of adventures with friends new and old! Goodbye sweet boy.

Remembering is appreciation and gratitude for love you shared. You are honoring him by your generous gift - setting him free from this existence. You have gone above and beyond in your care for him. He was blessed to be your kitty and he told you it was time. HUGS

    Hey Mannie! No worries my friend. The roadster sounds awesome with the top down. We'll be able to feel our fur and whiskers whipping in the wind. My bean says wheelies are a ok. Picks me up, k? Love you always, your friend Tarragon

    :cry:
    I have been watching and waiting, hoping and praying for something that could help Mannie.
    It was not to be. I remember taking an ailing civvie on one of many trips to the vet. "Is there anything more I can help you with?" he asked. "Please help to fix my cat," I replied. But we both knew there was nothing left that could be done.

    Mannie's unique spirit will never leave you. I will continue to pray for you as Mannie begins his journey to meet all of our beloved angels at the bridge...

    ((Michelle)) again my thoughts And prayers are with u! I know how hard it is to go through this but the best comfort is knowing you gave him a great life and are able to do what is right for him and free him from pain. My heart goes out to you knowing what it feels like and still grieving for my precious boy myself. Scrabble will be there to greet Mannie at the bridge with a huge smile on his face. Big hugs as I know this is so difficult! My heart is with you

    Mannie, you are my best pal, my buddy, my friend. I know that you have to journey to another place tonight. I will miss you so much, but I know that you are ready to take on a new adventure. The Blue Mannie Group will be rockin' at the Bridge now. Thanks for everything--all the great parties, all the great adventures, the picnics, the games, the rides in the roadster, the tree house, and all those fabulous fuds you taught us how to cook. I love you, man
    Rusty


    (((((Michelle))))) Feel the love and compassion of your many, many friends here as you say farewell to your wonderful boy tonight. You are giving him the best gift and he has already told you how grateful he is. He will be safe at the Bridge, surrounded by his many pals there, until you meet again. I can see Chef Stu waiting at the Bridge Landing already with a beautiful new apron and chef's cap for Chef Mannie. They'll be whipping up some great fuds for their friends before you know it.
    Many hugs to you tonight, Michelle,
    Love,
    Ella & Edward

    Farewell, Mannie. You will always be in our hearts. You are the best! We will think of you, Kitteh Barista, with every cup of coffee, every time we see a sunbeam. Bask in those sunbeams and send your mamabean and Nicholas a sign when you arrive safely at the Bridge.
    We love you very much,

Mannie is a legend of Lantus Land. His spirit will remain with all of us who have had the privilege to get to know him.

    Fly free Mannie and land softly. Your bean is very, very brave and you will be reunited at the Bridge.

Just know that all of us are thinking of you and your beautiful boy and sending all of our love and support to you and your family- especially Nicholas. I see such parallels in the relationship that Mannie and he have with what Tori and Ayanna have.

    Soon Mannie you will arrive at the most beautiful place. You will feel young and vital again like you did when you were a kitten. No more shots and pills, no more tests. Your old friends will be there to greet you. I know that Tori and Tiga will be there front and center. Fly high and free sweet boy with your beautiful golden wings. Please pay a visit to your Momma and Nicholas very soon. They need to know that you arrived safely.

    We all love you Mannie, the guarder of Nanners, chef extraordinaire. Fly free.

    Barb and the boys with Tori and Tiga in spirit.

He has spread infinite smiles through your pictures and updates. Hearing about him rounding up and guarding his nanners always refilled my heart past full and I always left your condo with a smile. Mannie was meant to be yours and only yours. I know he will be by your side in spirit always. I wish I could give you a real hug. I will light a candle for the Nanner King and your sweet boy tonight.

    It was a beautiful and unselfish gift you gave him today, with no pokes, no shots, just peace and comfort, and above all...love.

    Thank you for being a good friend, Mannie. Thanks for all the good foods you cooked up for our parties. My mom loves you, my friend. We will remember you always, Mannie, 'Nanner King!

    When I come to the end of the road
    and the sun has set for me,

    I want no rites in a gloom filled room
    Why cry for a soul set free!

    Miss me a little, but not for long,
    And not with your head bowed low,

    Remember the love the we once shared,
    Miss me, but let me go!

    For this a journey we all must take,
    and each must go alone,

    It is all a part of the Master's plan
    A step in the road to home.

    When you are lonely and sick of heart
    Go to the friends we know,

    And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
    Miss me, but let me go!

    We will miss you,
    But we will never forget you.

    Anyone who has been on FDMB knows of Mannie. Michelle, you've proven to be the most devoted of beans. There's no one else who takes the time to make sure we have a great story to read each morning. The time you've taken each day to make all of us smile and laugh, making us forget the reason we're all logged onto FDMB (oh yeah, our cats have diabetes), has been a blessing. I hope one day to finally see a children's book about Mannie, the Nanner King, and all his awesome adventures. I'll never been able to look at a catnip banana without imaging Mannie picking up his pile, one by one, moving them from one side of the room to the other, arranging them just so. Thanks for sharing his greatness with all of us and letting me, and everyone else, love him and you. An era has ended.

    We've never met, I'm so sorry,
    BEYOND THE RAINBOW

    As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
    I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade

    I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
    Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

    I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, an on the other side
    Were meadows rich and beautiful - lush and green and wide
    And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
    Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be
    My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
    And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do
    I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
    That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright glow pierced the night
    "Twas the glow of many candles, shining bright and strong and bold
    And I knew then that it held your love in it's brilliant shades of gold.
    For although we may not be together in the way we used to be
    We are still connected by a cord no one can see
    So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
    If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

    Michelle & family...

    Although Mego and I have not gotten to know you well enough in our short time here, we are deeply saddened tonight by the loss of a family member. :cry: :cry: :cry: I wish Mannie a butterfly taunting journey over the bridge this evening and we send our warmest hugs and blessings to you.

    Michelle, you give me strength in my own heart to one day be as brave as you are tonight and facing your loss with courage. Mego still talks about the wonderful meal from the party you threw for us not so long ago. In fact, sometimes when Mego isn't impressed by my cooking, I think I can hear Mego muttering something like "Mannie knew how to do this you dummy, why can't you make me something I actually LIKE?!?" Something tells me he'll be cooking up a storm for all those who crossed before him.

    Mannie - there are many candles around this world lighting your way tonight... godspeed to you.

    Oh (((Michelle)))I seriously am at a loss for words. You have managed to make Mannie bigger than life---indestructible and maybe he is. Maybe his work is not finished. In his too short life he has surely gotten the best parts of your spirit in his soul and will carry that with him on the next part of his journey bringing joy and fun to all of our GA's gone before him who will be waiting with open paws to welcome your precious boy.

    You are an inspiration and have been nothing but healing and positive since the moment you and Mannie joined this board. You are both deeply loved and if you take anything from this experience know that you made a difference and Mannie will always be remembered with lots and Lots of love.

    Fly Free Precious Mannie...feel the wind in your whiskers !

    Love,
    Caryl and Alex (and Jackson waiting at The Bridge)

    It's with a very heavy heart that I read your condo. What a beautiful and compassionate gift you gave to your best buddy. I'm so, so sorry it was his time to go. Mannie will be sorely missed. I've lit a candle here for him. Mannie is a LL legend, and will live on in all of our hearts.

    May he get all the sniffs, sunbeams, and nanners a kitty could ever want on the other side of the bridge. Fly free and land softly, sweet Mannie. rb_icon wings_cat rb_icon

    Big hugs to you, Michelle.

    Oh Michelle, I'm so sorry! I didn't see your last post when I posted before. Poor Mannie. I guess it's just his time to go. He had such a wonderful life but he's tired now and ready for the next big adventure. I know how much you love him. It's such a hard decision to make but also the kindest one when life has become a burden.

    I hope the good memories overtake the pain quickly when you see photos of his sweet beautiful face.

    Hugs,
    Melanie & Racci

    ((((Michelle)))) I'm so sorry it was Mannie's time to go. I don't log in often anymore, but when I do, I always want to see how our Mannie is doing. He has been such a presence in Lantus Land and will be missed by all. I'm sending love to you and your family, and dreams of nanners to the sweet Nanner King.

    (((Michelle))) My heart and prayers go out to you. As someone said before me, you and Mannie were the heart and soul here on LL with the laughs, road trips, Mannie's nanners. Espresso deliveries and the adorable times between Nicholas and Mannie.
    Fly free sweet Mannie and look for my GA Mikey there at the Bridge, along with all our other GA kitties, to greet and help you cross the Bridge. I will light his candle for Mannie.
    Mannie, now you are whole and jumping and playing and have all day to lay in the grass and catch sunbeams. Mags and I love you.
