Good evening, Christmas family !

A brisk and cold day today - just the way January is supposed to be !! Sat in front of the fire tonight for a while with Wish in my arms. I was telling him how much I love him and petting his little face. He seems to be holding his own so far. We got the latest set of blood work back and it is mixed I guess you could say as far as news. The BUN rose to 130, not good. However, the creatinine dropped from 3.4 to 2.4. High normal is 1.86 so not that far off !!

I asked if the BUN being that high would make him sick and the vet told me that usually they ARE really sick when it becomes that elevated. Then he asked me how Wish was acting. I told him Wish is acting his old self !! He DOES NOT act sick AT ALL !!! The vet told me that is really odd but that maybe Wish just didn't read the rules !!

Wish has a WONDERFUL appetite and truly is his old self. His breath has even gotten better - not to be too terribly graphic but his breath was very uroseptic smelling and now it is MUCH better.

The doc also told me the prognosis is likely to be less than six months. If it is, at least I know we both pitched in so that he could have a QUALITY life even in the end. And If the vet is WRONG about the six months and he somehow has longer, I will of course have more time to love him. xo We will just have to see.

Things have been quite rocky around here lately. I won't go into detail here. But I could certainly use a Fortress of Solitude like Superman has to go to...............Wishful thinking, I guess. I just should not have put myself in such a situation.

I am falling asleep as I type so I will say goodnight. xo I hope all have a very, very magical and Christmassy evening.

Awesome Brad, I've always loved the camaros. Unfortunately I'm on the free version, so I can't view your pics but good luck with it! My father and I have been working on a 51 mercury for a long time, when we got it, it was a 3 speed manual, no power steering and the original flathead engine in it, all that's been changed now. Anywho... Good luck with the car!

I'm so happy that Wish is doing well! It's good you had an open talk w/ his Vet. And Wish's actions are telling great things. Please give him an extra hug for us. Xo

Thinking of you otherwise, as well! If you want to chat, you know where to find me. Sending hugs. Xo

That's great! You'll have to show us all your handywork later on. Oh, by the way, with the weather as cold as it is, I am all nice and toasty sitting in front of the fireplace wrapped up in your Afgan...I'm hap-hap-hap-happy right about now~
