Knowledge is power

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

I've always felt that way. Unfortunately, today it's making me powerless. I dropped Simba off for an ultrasound to find out once & for all what's really going on with him & I don't like the answer: lymphoma.

I feel somewhat like I'm trapped in a déjà vu nightmare, as that is most likely what killed his predecessor, Cleo. Only she was 16 & he's only 11.

They have to do a biopsy to see what sort of cancer it is & treatment options . . . most pretty expensive. And I don't even know how long I'll be gone next week & therefore can't schedule anything right now.

Well, the good news is he's alive right now. It's a rollercoaster - he has good days & bad days, but this cat is not dying today & I very much doubt I have to worry about it happening while I'm away.

I had meant to recap oct goals & think about nov goals but not surprisingly that didn't happen today. A lot of tears instead & I don't cry easily. A 6 mile run on the treadmill (cause it's REALLY cold out & I just didn't want to deal with it today) that helped ease the stress. And blogging/venting is always helpful, too.

    Poor little sweetheart. I hope he doesn't suffer.

I don't think knowledge is power unless it's
used. I know people who have a lot
of knowledge, but it lies dormant. I think
it has to be actively used to become
powerful. Just MHO. (smiling) Big hug.

    Knowledege is in deed powerful, but the wrong kind of information can also be dangerous. Life is full of trials which will either makes us stronger or weaker. God Bless YOU! Vic.
