40|2013 For Now (October 21-27, 2013)
Thursday Purrkins went back to the vet to see how he was progressing since last week. The lab results indicate that Purrkins’ kidneys are shutting down. The vet said to let him eat whatever he wants and to keep him comfortable. Since then Purrkins seems fine though perhaps aging. He sleeps a lot, walks cautiously and isn’t interested in playing. However, he is quite interested in eating and in being close to us and getting loved on. The lab results suggest that his kidneys have lost 75-90% functioning. For now, everything is fine and we’ll continue to enjoy our time together.
In other news, we got two free trees this week from organizations helping to rebuild the tornado damaged areas. We gave one of the trees to our neighbors since we already ordered a tree that will be delivered and planted soon. The other tree we got we’ll plant soon. It will be a long while before we have very large shade trees around here.
Guess that’s about all for now…
