She had been ailing for a few days, took her to the vet couple weeks ago and got antibiotics. Then over the past week, she continued to get worse. When I took her to the vet yesterday, they did a leukemia test and it was positive. Kitten has gone to Kitty-Kat heaven, I'm sure.
My mother is doing better, and was moved to a semi-private room today. I visited in the afternoon, and mother seems to like her room-mate, who is blind and about mother's age. However, this room is only for two weeks...then mother will probably be sent home -- to my sister's house. Who knows what will happen then?
Otherwise, I spend my days the same: taking care of my cats/dogs, biking, reading, existing. The one-year sad anniversary of DH's death is at the end of this month and I am trying to cope. I've thought of different things to do on the day of his death, something to honor his memory...but haven't come to any conclusion.
Not much to write about lately. The dismal February winter darkness...although today was very nice, near 50 degrees and good for getting outside. I took the dogs on a long walk, biked, and visited mother, done some errands in town.
I miss Kitten; she was special, since I had to hand-feed her as a tiny runt. But I always knew something was wrong with that whole litter; all died except Kitten. I guess we know why now...
