Hello diary and everyone,
I've made it to another birthday! I know Mom has been worried about me for the past few months, but I am doing pretty good for an old gal with kidney disease. I even had a surprisingly good blood test recently. My kidney function is stable, certainly because of my new medicine (Epakitin and Azodyl; ask your vet about them if you have bad kidneys too). My red blood cell level is good AND my diabetes appears to have gone into remission. That means no more shots! Mom has to keep watching me for signs in case it comes back, but so far so good. It sure gets boring talking about my health problems, but that's part of getting older, isn't it?
Now that I'm in my twilight years and don't mouse around like I used to, I have a lot of time to reflect on my life as well as enjoy the slow pace of the present. I think back to what I wrote in my first entry -"I've been through some hard times, but have always maintained my positive attitude towards life and have continually welcomed humans into my kitty world. For this, I have been greatly rewarded." So true, so true. The people who have taken care of me, from my owners to my vets, have been a gift from the universe. We are a different species but we happily go through life together loving each other.
Did I just say I love my vets?? I must be getting senile. Ha, ha, ha.
Happy birthday to me!
