Well…. what a day. My previous post is about Poorboy; which is where my attention was for most of the morning. I had to take him to the emergency hospital near Pittsburgh. The decision to put him down was hard in a way and easy in a way. It was hard because I didn’t want to, but easy because I didn’t want him to suffer and he could barely breath. The vet showed me the x-rays of his chest and he had what she concluded was lung cancer. It was a very sad thing, though. I will miss him.
As I was getting the car ready to get him put in the car, Mark and Jenn (empressreborn) showed up to visit. Considering how things have been between them and me, I didn’t expect them to visit. That was something that was a little hard to deal with; but Mark made an effort to put things back on track. When I got back, I had to do an appointment that was a surprise gift from someone to the client whose computer it was. So, I had to get ready and leave shortly after getting back here from the vet hospital. Because I had to leave so quickly, I didn’t get to spend any real time with Mark and Jenn. The rest of the family did, however. I wasn’t good company anyway…. so maybe it was for the best. They brought me a neat little wolf carving. It is shaped like an egg… with a scene carved out of it.
Tonight, there was much drama in the extended family — serious drama; that, of course, has to find it’s way here. Sigh.
I feel really run-down. Today topped off a very long, very busy few days…. and I’m feeling beat. I hope I’m not getting sick now.
