A tough two days.
Lakshmi is starving herself to death because of pain in her mouth and is even vomiting up pain medications and her Ciproheptidine which makes her feel hungry. I was supposed to take her in yesterday for the surgery, but my "mother-in-law" suffered from an apparent stroke yesterday morning and was in a Kaiser ER for 10 hours before she was admitted.
It turns out it was not a stroke, but pneumonia, and she is feeling better. She is on two antibiotics. In the meantime, Lakshmi is getting worse, and the vet cannot do the surgery today or tomorrow so I have to take her to another for similar treatment.
Worse, I had "words" with someone for whom I care very much, leading to the worst blow to my heart. Sometimes being open is very difficult, and the vulnerability cuts deep, as much as it fills you with joy a few days before or later.
