Up and back to work, another week had begun.
I was grumpy there was no two ways about it. I wasn’t quite sure why, I didn’t spill anything on my clothes, my car started just fine, and the cats were perfect… I even woke up early!
It’s a good thing I did, I had to leave early today to take one of my cats in for his annual checkup.
That, of course, threw the entire day off kilter. I was trying to fit everything into a day that was 1.5 hours shorter than usual.
It shouldn’t be a big deal, my days are built around adjustments but for some reason today it seemed a little tougher.
Perhaps its because I still have a lot of work to do before solidifying the birthday plans. Whatever it was I became obsessed with doing the minor things I’ve been procrastinating for months.
For instance filing a vision reimbursement claim, why did I choose today? I have absolutely no idea.
From work straight home to herd the cat and then off to the doctors office. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
The vet came out and asked a few questions and then said ‘he’s doing much better than I thought he ever would’.
The background on this little guy is lengthy. He started having seizures about 2 weeks after I got him, which was at about 10 weeks old.
After several doctors appointments, they determined he has a condition called ‘hypocalcemia’ which means he doesn’t absorb calcium and low calcium can cause seizures.
At the time his pelvis was broken, but I managed to get him healthy and he’s been going strong for 2 years. I’m not exactly sure why I couldn’t let him go, knowing all of his health problems.
I told myself it was because he was so young he deserved a fighting chance at life, in hindsight, I think it was more to restore my faith in medicine because of the timing of it all.
Whatever the case, now I have a boisterous little guy named Smokey who can be a bit demanding because he needs medication twice a day but I wouldn’t change a thing.
