03:06 am - Days of Both Stress & Gratitude
Buddy is not doing well, with luck going back on his thyroid medication will allow him to start gaining weight, but he's very frail – the three of us all agree that he's likely to recover if he makes it through the next 4 or 5 days, but we don't know. However, when Becca took him to the vet today, they didn't charge us for the office visit – they know we don't have a lot of money and that we have spent a great deal on all our cats this year. They are by far the best and kindest vets we know of (we go to the Broadway Veterinary Clinic).

The stress of finding out that Buddy has lost even more weight and that the treatment didn't work, likely because the people at the radioiodine lab (who are not associated with our vet) had serious math fail has been hard on all three of us, and we are all barely holding it together, and Becca especially is having trouble (which is not unexpected, since Buddy has been her first cat), we've snapped at each other, and there have been some short but nasty fights as we've all had way too much stress of late, but they all resolved themselves fairly rapidly. The love and the communication skills in our relationships are impressive and wonderful, and I'm very pleased to have something that I can count on, but I hope the various dreadful financial and feline problems that have been the hallmark of this year stop soon.
