Little Ophelia

Little Ophelia has been sick. A week ago she started throwing up and couldn't stop. She would get sick every time she ate. So, we took her to the vet Friday. They though maybe she had a virus and sent us home with some medicine. The poor kitty continued to get sick every time she ate. So, we took her back the Saturday. This time the vet said it could still be a virus, or it could be her pancreas. If it was her pancreas we may not be able to keep her. She needed to get better.

So, we took her home with special food and more medicine. She continued to get sick all day Sat. and Sunday. Monday morning she got sick again and had a little blood in her throw up :(.

Let the crying began. I called the vet and cried to the receptionist. They told us to bring her in for a few days and many tests. I cried. I was convinced it was over, she was very sick and we would love have to put her down.

Thankfully, I was wrong. This kitty is a survivor.

They ran all the test and could find nothing, her pancreas was fine, and apparently, so was everything else. They gave her more fluids and kept her over night. We brought her home Tuesday night. This picture is Ophelia and Adaela's reunion. Yes, they are loveys.

She is now rocking too amazing shaved arms from her blood work. She looks like a cracked out poodle. But, we love her and we are so happy to have her home.

Mommy and Daddy Get Away!

Andy and I took a big step this past weekend. We let Adaela over night for the first time. She is 16 months old and two of our dearest friends down here booked us a room on Key Largo and told us they were watching Adaela.

At first we both fought it. We said "no, no, we will take Adaela." But, both of us knew it was time. Adaela has a blast with these two and Andy and I needed the time.

This is not to say I didn't grimace every time I talked about leaving her. But we were only a couple of hours away, I could be there if I needed to be.

It was an awesome trip. I had forgotten how much fun Andy and I have together. We laughed and laughed. It is amazing how the daily business of living can drown out all the reason you really love someone. In the end I hope to be 90 and still laughing with this man.

Adaela had one big party while we were gone, and I am not going to lie, I was a little offended how "uneventful" our reunion was :). She gave me a big hug and then went to play with her toys.

Yes, I know it is a good thing she feels so secure.

So, put a check in another milestone box.
