Sick Kitty Gets Mail

So, my poor kitty Frances has been struggling with bladder issues since we got back from Southeast Asia. She's been on two rounds of antibiotics, but a week after finishing the course, she's back to rushing back and forth to the litter box and piddling on the bathroom floor.

So I took her back to the vet again where they drew a sample of urine -- involving sticking her with a big needle -- she was NOT happy about this. The yowls were heard round the world.

Turns out the sample showed no infection, so she is on a drug which reduces inflammation of the urinary tract for 20 days. If she has problems after that, it may be that she has a bladder stone, so I am holding my breath that that isn't the case.

Anyway, on Saturday, a get well card arrives from the vet's office. So totally sweet. We happened to run into the vet on Sunday at Jupiter & I thanked him for the card (though I suspect that one of the vet techs initiated the gesture).

I made a photo card with a bubble coming out of her mouth that says "Thank you for the card" & need to take it by the office today. I keep meaning to make cookies too, but suppose that store-bought will have to do.

Tomorrow we are having friends for dinner, so I am going to spend the day cooking & attempting not to stress out about the job hunt.

Had a good second interview on Monday, but don't know what's going on with that time frame. I think I am going to call & ask the guy to call me back -- maybe if I don't leave specifics on his machine, he'll actually get back to me. Also had a good conversation with a senior-level person at another company. She is going to do some internal scouting for me -- hurrah! It would be really nice if something happened at that company.

Also got a rejection postcard from another interview -- I had suspected that I was going nowhere with this job, but had checked in with the woman this week. She gave me these really vague answers & I just question why she just didn't tell me over the phone that I wasn't what they were looking for. Kind of lame.
