Highlights and Observations of My Day (Saturday)...



1) Hannah didn't sleep through the night again. Zzzzz...

2) Woke up to two children in good moods for a change. (Thank god for small miracles.)

3) Called the vet first thing this morning and was told Salinger still didn't pee for them so they could check a uring sample.

4) Had Grace ask me very 5 minutes for the next 5 hours if the doctor called yet so we could go get her cat.

5) Cleaned out the entire upstairs kitchen/spare room. Surprisingly, it only took about two hours and now I'm wondering why the hell I let it sit there for the past 4 years, causing many an argument between me and Steve.

6) Hannah decided napping wasn't necessary today. Mommy thought otherwise. Mommy won. (Eventually.)

7) The vet finally called. There were crystals in Salinger's urine, so antibiotics and a switch to special food should fix him up just fine.

8) Also mentioned his blood sugar was elevated. Could be stress related, but now I have to take him back next week for a blood draw to check for diabetes.

9) Realized that if it is diabetes, I have a whole other set of problems since I can't afford what may be involved to keep him alive. :(

10) The Crack Kids were back in full force tonight, allowing me to justify to myself yet again, why I drink.

So, can you go get your cat yet? LOL! What does Hannah DO when she is up in the middle of the night?? Yikes! I'd be a wreck. Hope she slept last night for you.

I have a 'borderline diabetic' dog...sucks...but right now we don't have to do anything to manage him just extra blood tests on his regular exams and watching for symptoms...
(((hugs)))

The same thing happened with my cat. We put him on a rather expensive, diet tailored to his crystal problem and he was just fine. Hope everything turns out OK...

Yeah. Cat's home since yesterday, sectioned off upstairs in the kitchen/laundry room. So far he seems fine. And Hannah wants to come downstairs. I say no. She cries. I try to get her to sleep with me and Grace, but she CANNOT sleep with other people so eventually I chuck her back in her crib and let her fend for herself. ;)

Glad to hear they figured out the cat's problem. Hopefully it isn't diabetes!

I bet that felt great to get the spare room cleaned out. I love when I finally complete a big project that I have been putting off!
