So NSPy has some health issues. We knew he had FIV when we got him and were ok with that. Neither of us wants more than one cat right now and he's happiest on his own (with his people at his beck and call).
First he had conjunctivitis and bronchitis. His lungs didn't clear up though, but his eyes did. More antibiotics and still unclear lungs. We tried steriods to see if it might be asthma and that didn't seem to make much of a difference.
Now we've found out that he has an enlarged heart (and his lungs are still congested). The blood work says he doesn't have heart worms, so he goes in for an EKG next week to see if we can figure out what's going on. They're also going to check his blood pressure too. Poor kitty. :(

[from the humor list I'm on]
1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.
3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don't really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.
5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country if they could find the time and if they didn't have to leave Southern California to do it.
The flight back was uneventful. I slept a lot more this flight than the one to CA, but I'm still wiped out. The kitty is very happy to see me. He's sitting next to me on my bed and purring up a storm.
More tomorrow, including lots of pictures.
