Alright! Do I have kidney stones, an ovarian cyst, endometriosis, or appendicitis? Who knows?!
I’m still having right lower back and side/abdominal pain. I’m going to the doctor tomorrow morning.. Not excited. I kind of suspect it’s reproductive in nature, but I really hope it’s not a kidney stone.
Today hasn’t been good or productive, but it’s not entirely my fault. I started the day with an attempted rescue… A neighbor posted a picture of a cat who had been hit, saying they ‘still had some life left in them.’ Wtf, man. But I guess he could have done less by doing absolutely nothing… So I grabbed a carrier and a towel, put Nathan in the car, and went to find the poor thing. She was in bad shape, breathing but only barely. I bundled her up and called a couple vets to see who could see her. When they saw her, it was as I expected: she was in really bad shape with neurological signs indicative of a severe head injury. Poor girl was old, estimated 13 or 14, and of course didn’t have a chip. The vet said we could take x-rays and try some things, but she was old and didn’t stand a good chance of making it and recommended euthanizing her, which they did at no cost. I would have paid for it, just to keep her from suffering, but it was appreciated. I knew when I first saw the picture that this was probably what would happen, but I couldn’t leave her to die in the street. Nathan handled it all pretty well, as kids sometimes do. He was happy when we got a donut afterward.
I had a horrid headache when we got home, so I’ve basically been a potato. I’m going to take a shower and try to kick start myself once Nathan takes a nap, see if I can get some cleaning done. Wish me luck.
