Animal Hospital

I was going to post about how I've been working on grant proposals lately for a project that I'm excited about at work and how it's been kind of an emotional roller-coaster with a bunch of course changes as we find out which solicitations we can and can't submit to.

But then today we spent three hours at the vet's office finding out that our cat Ioliel, Miss Princess Jellybean Sweetie Bibbilina, is having kidney problems, and then an hour getting her checked into the animal hospital for a stay over the weekend to get continuous IV fluids so we can see how she responds and what the future might hold, and now I really don't care about work stuff.

I suppressed the gross sobbing snotty emotional breakdown until we get home, even through doing some errands and shopping that needed to happen, so now I know I can do that.

And I don't know what to say other than that she's only four or five years old and it's not fair that this isn't happening fifteen or twenty years from now, or better yet, never, so here are some pictures instead.
