T-bone is a wizard. Just gonna say it. He makes armor, and is really good at it. And he is making me a new set of leg armor that will be more protective, and also act as a knee brace for lateral motion. It has been the coolest thing ever to watch the entire process from start to almost finish. Geeky coolness!
On a cat-related note, I am waiting to talk with the vet about Dali's condition, and brushing up on what I know about feline chronic kidney failure. If I remember the numbers she cited last week correctly, Dali is in the final stage of renal failure, and normal life expectancy for cats at this point is an average of 39 days from diagnosis.
However, Rocker very kindly contacted me and shared her experiences with Momo, and reminded me not to pay attention to the numbers, but to how the kitty is doing. So...I am looking into giving her subcutaneous fluids and other measures to see if it helps. She is perkier in some ways since getting fluid last week, but she appears to be losing weight continuously, no matter what we feed her.
But she is being lovey and responsive when we pick her up and love on her still, and still looks interested in the world, so she is hanging in for now. We will see how things go day by day.
