I used to blog every Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Yeah, not so much lately. I've actually been kinda down with the latest news of Bailey... I'll fill you in..
Tuesday night I cried for over 2 hours because I thought we were going to have to put Bailey down. He's not better at all and Darin and I finally talked about the fact that he may not recover from his surgery. He won't eat, he's delusional, his eyes are glazed over, he's been messing in the house and he walks and meows like he's in pain. Darin called the vet and the vet wanted to see him one last time. I did some more research on his symptoms and D and I are sure that he has Fatty Liver Syndrome. It explains him to the "T". Preferably they'd like you to insert a tube from his mouth into his belly and syringe feed him for 6-7 weeks. I read a few places that some people have been successful by force feeding the cat for 6-7 weeks. So Darin and I have chosen to try the force feeding route. We can't afford any more vet visits and I first and foremost want him to recover but I also want to feel like I did everything possible to help him recover if he doesn't make it. But the money train has to stop. =( Darin was completely on board to keep force feeding him.. prolly cuz I love my cat and Darin is in love with me. Works well like that. And he can't fool me.. Darin likes Bailey-the-now anorexic-cat too.
Sooooo... we called the vet and told him we were trying our own methods of treatments because of our own diagnosis. Vet-momma-Darcy is taking methods into her own hands. Please, please keep praying for him because seriously, I would be so entirely crushed if we had to put him down. He's only 4 1/2 and he makes me happy. =(
Nuff of that. It makes me sad thinking about it.
One of the reasons I haven't blogged much is because our huge every-other-year chicken show at work is coming up in January. Oh yes, there are chicken trade shows. Quite large chicken shows. So large that almost every hotel room is booked in Atlanta.. that is what is causing me grief.. anywho, I get to go to this one. I'm pumped.. wanna know why?
Is it to see all the latest chicken feeders and drinkers?
Is it to eat the $5.50 a piece-bigger-than-my-fist-shrimp at the reception on Tuesday night?
Well, I won't complain about that one...
The real reason...
The show is in Altanta.
One of my very good friends lives in Altanta.
A friend that I have never met in real life but somehow she TOTALLY gets me. Entirely. Knows when to send an encouraging email.. makes me laugh at my puter cuz she's the funniest little thing ever.. and a girl that is GOING TO BE MARRIED WHEN I MEET HER!!!
Not to mention this girl is the new up and coming at Creating Keepsakes. And you CANNOT convince me that it is due to the blackmail letters in different colored gel pens...
That's right, the coolest, most fabulous, Miss Kayla Aimee.
I can't wait to meet you, girlfriend! Less than 2 more months. =)
