emotional week

I've had my pics from the last crop ready to post, but the week has been a rollercoaster of emotions.

Started out great, got to see the dgd Monday and Tues. Tues, they were here for most of the day, as their carpets were being cleaned. BUT Tues I noticed our 18year old cat was throwing up and 'squirting' from her bottom, and not touching her food. Just like the cat we lost 2 years ago. Oh no. So, I took WEds off thinking I was going to have to put her down.

But, when I woke up Weds, she looked so 'lively' in her eyes...I took her to the vet, and since dh won't pay for full tests and such...it looked bad. BUT I could not do it, not while she had so much life...and she was climbing all over me at the vets. So, we decided to treat the immediate symptoms.

Long story short, she is responding to the medications. No more vomiting, she is eating, and still diarreha but no longer squirting uncontrollably. She was even playing with her toy last night. Is this a long term fix? I don't know. But it is so good to see her back to her 'old self'.
