Shawn had his ultrasound today! And it went fairly well. He has a shaved chest and belly that is totally adorable, and even though I had to take his food away at midnight and he was SUPER hangry, he has since forgiven me.
His heart looked okay, so we’re all heaving a big cautious sigh of relief because it still has to go to a cardiologist to review. It’ll be a few more days before I hear about that, but for now, this means that even if he does have an issue, it’s not going to kill him in the immediate future.
He did not get his bloodwork because he said NO THANK YOU, I WANT TO GO HOME AND EAT NOW, so we’ll schedule that for later just to double check some potential neurological stuff I saw. Today’s bill with tax was just over $800 and I paid it all in one go. My sincerest thanks to everyone who contributed in some way, I actually feel lighter.
The premade cover sale is continuing until December 1.
The Emaleth’s Cat story fundraising is still going to give folks a chance to grab that before November 30. Any remaining money will go for his bloodwork in a few weeks. I’m five hundred words into it and should be delivering it the first of December.
I feel like I’ve aged ten years with worry the past while (combined with handraising the kittens, which also knocked a decade off my life, I’m basically ready for retirement now), and am trying to unwind a little to get back into some semblance of a schedule.
