Re: Rascal Update
I hope that the cardiologist will be able to recommend some meds. I doubt
whether anything will be able to be done other than supportive care since
his heart is enlarged. We will see.
The main reason for today's visit was that my vet wanted a second pair of
eyes to rule out some other things and didn't have the equipment to do the
ultrasound. There was a chance that something would be found that was
He doesn't seem to be in pain. He's still interested in life. He wasn't
supposed to have any food today before they checked him out. We put the food
out in the utility room at midnight. He found it this AM when Bill left the
door open, and hopped up onto the washer to get it. When I brought him home,
he nibbled some cat grass, had some food and then went onto the screened
porch to watch birds. He's now napping.
As for my purse, I expect it will be another $500 tomorrow, as it was
today. Just since Buddy died Labor Day weekend, I've spent every bit of my
salary last semester as adjunct instructor at the local technical college.
We've gone this far. In for a penny, in for a pound. I doubt whether surgery
or other invasive treatment will be recommended. We'll eat lots of
spaghetti, beans and soup as we did when we were newlyweds more than 35
years ago. We'll survive.
Oh, yeah - Dreyfuss is starting to act like he has another kidney infection,
and it looks like a heron ate all of my fish. First time we've had a heron
actually fishing in the almost 20 years since we installed that water
garden. Must be the drought drying up every other source. The farm pond
down the road has about a 3' puddle. It had water in it even in the severe
droughts of the 80's.

Sorry to hear this Daryl. I really hope he can pull through but, is there
a point where you will say he's been through enough or when the doctor
will say there is no chance of reversal? I do home he can make it, but
this process has got to be really hard on him - and on you and your purse
as well. Forgive me please, for being realistic.
