WIP Wednesday: Thursday edition

Since Angel got sick, I haven't done any writing at all. No, wait, I did write a little bit yesterday morning. I believe it was about one and a half sentences.

So yeah, basically I'm totally stressed out and can't concentrate on much of anything. I've decided to just allow myself to read other people's books until the issue with Angel is resolved one way or another. She's improved from Monday, but she's not better by any means and she's not really eating. I'm going to call the vet tomorrow and see if her lack of appetite might be due to the steroids and if the steroids are important enough to keep giving them to her. I plan to do a lot of cooking this weekend for her, to see if I can tempt her appetite. I resorted to giving her ham soaked in milk this evening. She drank the milk but hardly touched the ham.

I need comfort reading. Maybe I'll reread Megan Whalen Turner's The Thief, one of my favorite books.

*applauding your courage*. When my animals get sick, I freak out and take them to the nearest 24 hour emergency center, where somehow they suck $400 out of my wallet and tell me my dog has a cold.

Hope your cat feels better soon.

K.C. Shaw said...

Thanks, I hope she does too. She just threw up some of the ham she ate earlier. *sighs*

Jameson T. Caine said...

My dogs are my children, so I get worried sick when they're ill.

Sending good thoughts your way for Angel's recovery.

BT said...

Everyone here sends good thoughts for Angel.

If it helps brighten your day, I just ordered my copy of Jack. Looking forward to its arrival.

Alan W. Davidson said...

I'm beaming you encouraging thoughts through the internet...hope your cat is doing better soon, and the vet can give some good feedback.

K.C. Shaw said...

Jameson--I'm going to offer her tuna for breakfast. If that doesn't get her to eat, I'll be really worried.

BT--Thanks! I hope you like it.

Alan--I thought I sensed encouraging thoughts being beamed through the internet connection. :)

here is hoping your kitty feels better soon.

K.C. Shaw said...

Thanks, she ate some tuna so at least she's had something to eat. Yesterday she didn't eat at all, which really scared me.
