While I share a lot of personal photos in this space, I rarely, if at all, write anything personal. I’ve hinted at it here and there, but things lately have really sucked. And by lately I mean for the past few months.
I feel like every week there is just another shitstorm I have to deal with. And once things start looking up and I think everything is changing for the better, something else happens. At this point it’s almost turned into a joke of what bad thing will happen next.
So without further ado, this weeks bad thing is Kitta Marie had to have emergency surgery yesterday.
Off and on for the past few years she had dealt with UTIs. We had a big scare about 3 years ago, but since then things have been under control. Then a couple of weeks ago I noticed she was showing symptoms again. I took her to the vet and got her on medication and special food. I thought she would get better, but it was just getting worse and worse. I took her to the vet yesterday morning where they x-rayed her and saw she had 9 (!) huge crystals in her bladder that would not pass on their own.
Luckily she went through surgery and is on the mend, but it’s just one frustrating (and expensive) ordeal after another. I’ve spent more money on my cats in the past month then I make in a month.
So here’s hoping 2012 gets better, but I’m not holding my breath.
