[personal profile] apollymi
Roo is still deeply unhappy with us for his vet visit yesterday. He's not eating his special food.

The results of his blood work came in. He is deeply anemic. His red blood cell count should be 30 to 40%, but it's 11%. His white blood cell count is also slightly elevated. They're not sure what all that means without doing more tests (that we can't afford), but they also tossed around the Big C word quite a bit. They also want to send him to a specialty vet for a blood transfusion, which we also cannot afford. Either way, they're putting him on some two different antibiotics and a appetite enhancer to try to get some weight back on him. I'm going to go pick those up as soon as they call me tomorrow. If he isn't looking better when we go back in two weeks, then they're going to start talking humane euthanasia.

I'm trying not to worry. I'm trying to keep my mind in other places. I'm playing in [personal profile] katsuko's Magnificent Seven 'verse, and it's actually getting me more words than my actual NaNo story. Although, I think we've decided that it's pretty much a shared 'verse at this point: she's bounced just about every idea off of me first, I've contributed to a lot of the plotting and planning and plot points, and I have this story. At this point, it looks like we've got this thing divided out: she's got the sweethearts (Goodnight and Billy) and I've got the trolls (Faraday and Vasquez).

But that's the state of here right now. I'm not sure what more to add, excepting an ongoing word count. As always, it's not completely up to date, but here's where I'm at right now:

4808 / 50000 words. 10% done!
