after blood work, they have determined that farah has chronic renal failure. she is only 4 so it's probably a genetic condition- not caused by something but inherited. she may have something like PDK-Polycystic Kidney Disease which is common in persians and other exotic cats. i have no idea what her parents were- her and her sister were feral.

life- a genetic fucking crap shoot.

the symptoms of this are a lot like hyperthyroid condition and sometimes do not even show up in blood work. her sodium levels are so high and she is dehydrated so they are going to keep her overnight and slowly re-hydrate her to keep her brain from going into shock. if she can be stabilized we'll see what to do from there. if the cause is genetic- it's a progressive disease . there's no cure. if she can be stabilized and her levels don't shoot up again she may be able to regain enough function to live comfortably. there's no way to tell right now.

nixie is looking everywhere for her- and the rest are pretty freaked out. i'm pretty freaked out. and really sad. the doctor told me there's no way i could have known but still...i'll a nano second from drinking a gallon of vodka and driving hal into the charles.

i was looking forward to going out with my family for my birthday this week- actually doing something with people who actually like being with me for once. oh, heavens please don't tell me i'll be burying my sweet heart girl.

fuck sticks. just fucking fuck sticks.

Oh no...I hope for the best of worst here and that she is able to bounce back and live comfortably. I had a family member, Cheddar, who was taken from me far too soon with an uncurable condition :(

No Charles and no vodka..the rest need you too.

Much good wishes to Farah...and your family aren't the only people who like being with you...there is a stripey old lady and her chosen servant who do too.
