I Confess Total Exhaustion

Wednesday, April 10, 2013



I must confess that I got worn out, totally frazzled, from all the worry over my kitty. My head probably has accumulated few more silver hairs to glisten in the moonlight.



I was checking her breathing through the night, covering her with a blanket when she was cool, giving her medicine, force feeding her, running around to pet stores trying to find a food she will eat willingly. We almost lost her twice, but the force feeding worked. It is totally amazing how much of a difference it made. I never have done anything like that before.



We have a new relationship. It's different. She has a different trust when she looks at us. She cooperates now when we give her the medicine, instead of fighting. Yesterday and today she slept on me for part of the night. She is still healing, but she is feeling much better. She has the energy to purr and clean herself. She prefers that than when I was cleaning her with a washcloth.



She is filling back out a tiny bit. Her fur is looking cleaner, healthier. She doesn't have the glassy, glazed, sunken eye look anymore. She has lost lots of weight, hopefully she will regain it quickly. Hopefully she will only improve from now on with all the healing energy she has received and prayers.



Yesterday I selfishly took time for myself. I took a nice cat nap with my kitty. Today I slept in an extra half hour. What Bliss !!! I really needed to catch up on my sleep. I couldn't rest well when she was very ill, I kept checking up on her all hours of the night.



LOL. Her dad is a retired fire battalion chief.

She knows her DAD is gone fishing. The sliding glass door is cracked open so she can run in and out of the house, checking up on me as she loves to do. Her plans for the day is to take a catnap in the flower bed, sniffing all the flowers, breathing in there sweet scent.



As for myself, I plan on making some green juice. Today it will be apple, grape, wheat grass, cucumber, parsley, maybe pineapple, and strawberries. It sounds terrible, but it gives me a great burst of energy. The more wheat grass I add to my diet, the better I feel. My brain feels clearer, more focused and I have energy to get things done around the house. There must be something in it my body needs.



My workout will be JNL Fusion DVD. It's a combination of Intense cardio and weights. It cycles with 30 second cardio which I do on the rebounder bouncing as intensely as I can and alternating with weight lifting. Initially I rented the workout from Kinetic Flix. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up purchasing it. Using the rebounder is my way of modifying the workout so I can get the intensity of it without hurting my joints.



Hopefully I will be able to get in a yoga workout in the afternoon.



Thank you for all the prayers and healing energy !!!



Hugs.

    Sometimes you need to take a rest to let your body recharge. Hope you and kitty both do just that.

    emoticon Great to see your blog featured in the Spark Mail.

Glad ur cat is doing better. When our cat had infection from a bite, we had to give him fluid under the skin at the nap of his neck. He wouldn't drink but he did get better with the IV treatment. We gave him medicine with an injection into the hip area after he had gotten medicine at the vet.

  I'm so glad to hear that your kitty is better. I just had to send mine to a foster home because we are moving to Houston temporarily. I miss him terribly. Kitties are such sweet companions.

    I am so glad to hear that your kitty is doing better! I am a cat person and I have 3 indoor cats of my own. (All 3 were rescues) I love them all. Last year our Tux accidently got out (long story) and was missing for 9 days. We were at our mobile home park for the winter. I was just sick with worry. Everyone here was very helpful and supportive and they all looked for him too. I did a lot of praying! On the 9th. day my husband found him!! I truly believe that the prayers helped. emoticon

    What great kitty pictures! Adorable! Glad to hear your furry baby is feeling better--try giving her some baby food. Gerbers makes some ground meats for toddlers that are perfect for a sick kitty. Lots of protein--easy to digest!

Thanks for the updates--prayers for a healthy kitty soon!

    It's not self to take time for yourself. It's necessary or you won't be good for anyone else either.

I'm glad your cat is doing better too.
