esther looks like she is dying. i come home and she is awkwardly spread over 2 karunda beds, unable to get up. i help her to her feet and help her down off the beds. she toddles out to have a pee, comes back and has a drink and then lays down on the double pillow bed....exhausted from her activity.
i make my dinner..buitoni spinach and goat cheese pizza (the absolute BEST frozen pizza in the whole entire world!) charm can smell it cooking and he very clearly says he wants some. so when it was done and cooled a bit..i gave him a piece up in the laundry room. i bring the rest to the computer desk and sit down, prepare to fend off the greedy beasts and share as little as i possibly can.
and shit...who gets up all by herself, walks over as steady and determined as can be and stands there rock solid and intently staring at me??? anyway... esther ate quite a lot and when she was done and toddled away, she suddenly remembered how weak she was and slid back down to the floor.
quite amazing the temporary medicinal qualities of pizza.
don't worry esther..i have another one stashed in the freezer for tomorrow...charm will be happy about that too.
britney's bloodwork is back...we are adding a bile test to further check her liver function. molly's tumor pathology is also back... a mild to moderately aggressive malignant carcinoma. it looks like they got good margins, but the vet said it still may come back, they quite often do. janice is taking her home tomorrow on a trial. i think she will be a good companion for chilko, janice's other saints foster dog who really needs a good friend.
