04:29 pm: Odd Days and Times
Yesterday I spent about five hours at two Kaiser centers with doctors, x-rays, and labs, and I wanted to have some time where nothing distracted me. I had dinner at Uno's and was pleased that they've downsized their gorgonzola/glazed walnuts/pomegranate dressing salad. I liked the big one with chicken, but this way I have more choice.

The labs came back today and my kidney labs have dropped dramatically from when I had them last on the 16th. My GFR was 46 two weeks ago and yesterday was 31. That's not just a big drop, but where I've been in Stage 3 (moderate) for about 10 years, I'm now just two points above Stage 4 (severe). My BUN was increased about the same proportion, so I'm going to cut back a lot on protein.

I went to bed really early last night so I could get up at 8am today so I can get up tomorrow at 6:30am. Spirit is going to the dental vet halfway in to DC with an appointment at 9am, rush hour. Better to get there a little early than late. I'll have to take the dry food away from both of them when I go to bed; when I get Spirit in the carrier in the morning, Shiva will get the whole can of wet food. Spirit is going to be very mad. She's been in the carrier twice so far today, kneading a bit; I hope she's not too much trouble to get into the carrier tomorrow!

I took the Hoover and too-big clothes to the charity thrift shop today, plus the fake flowers Luke gave me. When I first came home from the hospitals, he said he was going to send me flowers and I told him the cats might eat them, which wouldn't be good. He said he'd figure something out and the next day I had fake flowers (that looked quite real). Well, yesterday, someone tried to eat a leaf (probably Shiva) so the flowers had to go.

Hope all goes well with Spirit.
And I hope things will get a little quieter. Your days have been very busy lately.
Take good care,

She had all her little teeth out. I saw the x-rays and she could have kept four, but they didn't match, so I'd probably have to have them out in a couple years and pay again for all the surgical structure when I just paid for four more teeth now. The poor baby has blood on the fur around her mouth and a swollen mouth. She doesn't want to see me.
