|Sam in 2011.|
Sam seems to be on the road to recovery. She is still not as active as she was, but she is improving every day. She is not totally healed, but she is so much better than she was.
She has been through a lot: constipation, arthritis and body pain, infection. Our vet used the words “life threatening” on Saturday.
We were reminded that Sam is 17 years old this month, and that any illness in a kitty that old can be serious.
Our plucky girl didn’t give up. She bravely withstood repeated vet visits, needles, x-rays. She put up with the worried attention Larry and I gave her. Poor baby probably needs a vacation from us.
And Larry and I didn’t give up on her. We shed tears and paced the floor. We lost sleep and had a lot of worried conversations. We held on to hope that Sam would come back to us.
And we are grateful that she is on that road back.
I appreciate your comments and messages of concern you sent.
I haven’t missed writing a post, but I feel like I’ve been away for a long time because I haven’t been keeping up with YOU. I have missed you and hope to get back to the routine I enjoy so much—reading your blogs and catching a bit of what you’re doing in life.
I’ve not been following my regular routine lately because of all that has been going on. My emotions have been all over the place. I hope I’m on the road back, too.
Let’s start with the comments section: what’s one thing YOU have been up to lately?
