Yesterday was a tough tough day for everyone here in the Frugal Trenches household. It was determined that pus was once again forming in kitty’s body and the infection was spreading, easily seen through the bright red colour her skin turned. More drugs were administered and she just let me (& the vet) know she had had enough – throwing up, frothing at the mouth, shaking, walking backwards, hissing galore. Much coaxing was tried, food offered, nothing worked. Finally I scooped her up, held her firmly and lay down with her on my bed, in the space of a minute the throwing up stopped, the hissing turned into purrs and we both slept for 3 hours cuddled up together. Once she woke up, she was a different kitty. Still sore, still sick but spirits improved. Yesterday I was told 20x she might die which was not particularly helpful, today no one has muttered anything negative. And I feel the fog lifting. Today I’ve done “holding time” three times with her and she is thankfully happier. I think the fog is lifting for her too…my girl will come back, in time.
And the car? Oh the car was fixed today! I have two more weeks to pay and I’m almost there, not because of anything I’ve done, but because of you – people who’ve never met me who wanted to help. I will never ever be able to say enough thank you’s, I will never ever be able to explain just what it means.
And the job? They are 99% sure it will go ahead, now just waiting for occupational health clearance. Could it be in a little over two weeks from now I will begin work again? Oh I can only hope.
So while things may still be difficult for some time, I am starting to see through the fog. This too shall pass always holds true.
