Aby-a-Day – 16 April: Beginning of the end…

Vide. It means “pussywillow” in Swedish and “empty” in French. Ironically appropriate.

Also appropriate: the British meaning of the word “gutted” for this feeling I have right now.

Logan was losing weight, but I fed him kitten food, Hill’s A/D, Royal Canin Convelescence, and Aptus Reconvalescent Paste.

I called the vet on Tuesday, and the first appointment available was Friday. We took it.

Logan was thin, but he didn’t look sick.

He definitely didn’t have the swollen, fluid-filled belly.

Logan needed an ultrasound of his belly, but there was another patient in that room, so we had to wait.

We finally went in. I don’t have any photos of him getting his ultrasound because I was busy helping to hold him.

After the ultrasound, they took samples of Logan’s blood for testing.

He did not like that.

Although I think he was more upset about having to have a bandage on his arm than the actual blood draw.

“Can we please go home now, mom?”

And when we did, all we could do was wait for the test results. It was a very long weekend.
