I fear I am dull and self-pitying. But then again, I do know I have an audience of sympathetic cat-parents. lena status, cut for micro-detail )

It is a waste of time putting on makeup when you can't stop crying.

lena update, fwiw )

I did have a brief shining moment of optimism yesterday. Really I did. Today: more back pain, and Lena isn't eating.

lena's bloodwork results )
jaeclectic: (lena)
Short version: As of yesterday afternoon, she was unable to stand or walk. If that had continued, clearly her quality of life would not be tenable. But the brain is an amazing thing, and apparently the feline brain repairs with astonishing rapidity, because she is in fact doing much better today. I'm still pretty freaked out, though, since another stroke could happen anytime.

details )
jaeclectic: (lena)
She's had another stroke. Or perhaps is having a series of strokes.

I thought I was going to have to say goodbye today, but the vet said I should wait and see what happens overnight.

If you can find it in yourself, please wish for me an unambiguous decision.

She's at the vet now, presumably stoned to the gills. They will probably start surgery around noon, and the procedure could take several hours -- removing two separate tumors, either or both of which might turn out to be complicated...

Anyway, plz think good thoughts for the kitteh.

Lena is sick again. Not eating, appears nauseated. Too late to call the vet now, and not quite emergency-vet-worthy. So I need to call first thing in the AM.

Briefly: I finally got all the Galapagos pics uploaded, and made some kind of cut at the highlights set.

and the Lena update )

I'm going to have to call the vet tomorrow. Lena isn't eating or drinking.

Yesterday I thought it was just because she was due for a dose of the anti-nausea / appetite stimulant med, but today she is still just not interested in ingesting anything. I keep trying to tell her, you need to eat, you won't live if you don't eat...

home, all's well )

Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.

-- Rabindranath Tagore
