whatever happens

Itso is still with us, if anyone is wondering. I had a long talk with my vet, Trish, and then with my roomie, and this is what we've decided: at the moment, Itso is in no pain (he's nauseated a lot, but not hurting); he's acting normal, cheerful, loving, and except for the weight loss, there's no sign that he's sick; we can prolong his life by giving him subQ fluids three times a week, at a cost of about $50/month, roughly. With all these factors, but mostly because he doesn't seem to want to leave us yet and we don't want him to be gone, we're going to do the fluids and wait for the end, rather than put him down now. I figure most animals let you know when they are ready to go, and he definitely hasn't given the matter any thought, so he deserves what we can do for him. I had to make the call - I always do, that's my job here at the house - and that was my decision. I have to admit that my roomie was pleased with that decision (Itso is her baby), although she was willing to accept and support whatever decision I made.


I'm nearly finished with what will probably be the last chapter of "Reunion", which covers the battle at the Aoiya. Hiko and Hikaru are really having a lovely spat. I love to write when they're fighting. It's funny, but they rarely fight - in fact, I think I've written about every real fight they've had in all their years together. Not so odd, actually, since that's the fun stuff to write... But anyway, I love it that Hikaru considers herself as a calm woman without a bad temper, and she is so NOT that, and Hiko brings out her temper so easily and then is amused by it, which naturally makes her even more angry. Wheeee. What's even more fun is that Hikaru is mad because she is jealous, and that is a first for her. She simply doesn't know how to cope with it, poor thing, and she's acting like a middle school girl. *cackle*

I have missed the RK universe, that I have.

I couldn't agree more. I admire your thoughts and actions on this matter; and I'm sure that Itso's last days with you will be very happy ones for all of you, albeit with an underlying tone of sadness for you and Randi. *hugshugshugs*

Oh, *squeebounce*! I should be able to say something more intelligent and coherent than that, but it's 2:30 AM, and so I say, *squeebounce*! I can hardly wait. I hope we can chat this weekend.

I'm so glad to hear that Itso will be able to spend a few more months with you. I know you'll make sure he's happy and comfortable.
LOL! Yes, exactly! And it's not as if they don't trust their men... *cough*
