06:59 pm: Another Toothless Cat
I'm going to go sit in the recliner soon and take more pain meds. Spirit only had four good teeth (I saw the pictures and x-rays) and they didn't match, so I had them taken out, too. They might not hurt her, but they wouldn't help and they'd probably have to come out later and I'd have another set of surgical costs (anesthesia, meds, etc.) to pay then. So eight hours sitting up straight. She's very unhappy about having her mouth swollen, but is coming out from behind the water heater every now & then. I have pain meds for her starting at 11pm.

One of the oddest things was that I was the only owner there (other people drive home and back and home) and I'd brought the WashPost and Flying Cups and Saucers with me and read them before lunch while they played an I Love Lucy DVD on a big TV. When I came back from lunch, the TV was off and one of the assistants came out and gave me a choice of DVD. I told her that if they didn't want to watch, I'd rather read. She said "Oh!" like that was not an option, even though I'd already read for three hours.

We got the newPENt scheduled for Monday, so I can start the cytoxan on Tuesday.

Freya never crunched a thing in his teeth, his entire life. From a kitten, he'd only swallow biscuits whole.

He had 4 major teeth ops by the time he died - and we were looking to another one every 2-3 years by the time he was any age.

Didn't you realise reading was old fashioned? ;-)

Now both kitties are toothless! Shiva got his out last year, but he's back to eating dry food, too.

Maybe she thought it was a picture book....

She came down and sat on the end of the bed for about two minutes this morning. She's still pretty mad at me. And she tracked blood around the condo. I got a lot of it last night so today I'll be taking little breaks to get what I couldn't see last night in most of the house, and I'm going to clean the utility room. I have all the movable stuff out already and in my next bit, I'll take a chair in and use a mop to get behind the washer-dryer and the water heater.

Fortunately, there's no real blood coming from her mouth now, which means she didn't pull a stitch. I was worried about that.
