Yes, Tuesday was a bad day. Wednesday wasn't any better. However, today has been looking up.
Without giving out too much personal information, on Tuesday I had to deal with two highly serious personal crises at the same time. Both of them continued into Wednesday afternoon. One of them is mostly resolved, or at least my direct involvement in it is finished.
The other crisis is my seriously ill cat, Magenta, who has a history of diabetes, irritable bowels, eye problems, and generally being a fat ass. He's been at the vet for a week (actually two different vets) and until yesterday was near death. When I saw him on Tuesday evening, he was in such poor condition that I was preparing myself for the worst. He's doing better today, although he's still in bad shape, but today's report from the doctor indicates that his health is moving in the right direction. I'm hoping that I can bring him home this weekend. So everyone please think good thoughts about my cat.
