Almost there...

Friday, October 26, 2001

I spent last night sitting up with Tigger, making sure she didn't need anything, cleaning up after her when she accidentally urinated on the floors, and making sure she wasn't alone in case she just stopped breathing. The diabetes is the least of her problems. Much bigger is the congestive heart failure. They're hoping to get her on some medication to start helping her by the end of the day, but so far, it's been a whole lot of wait and see what the tests show. A week later, she's on death's door. I hope that today's tests point toward a solution rather than another test. I don't think I can take many more nights of watching her pant just to stay alive.

October used to be my favorite month. These past few Octobers have brought nothing but tests and heartache. I sure hope there's some medication to help her. I'm just not willing to give up my baby kitty just yet.
