Eating squirrel brains, apparently a delicacy in southern Ohio/West Va/Kentucky area has been linked to human mad cow diseas, bovine spongiform something or other.

visited Mia. remember last year, she ripped out the stitches on the nose that held her feeding tube in place (b/c she kept ripping it out, they sewed it to her). this time, they sewed the feeding tube to her head IN THREE PLACES. Heh. You go, Mia!

She made it through surgery. Good.See, Topix prayers work. Have they told you what to expect? Will she go back to being a normal cat?

Vet just called. MIa is open on the operating table right now (he was on speaker phone). Tumor isn't on her kidney, it's in/on her intestines and maybe her spleen. He said it'll be dicey as to whether he'll be able to remove the tumor, save her spleen, and reconnect the portions of the intestine that he has to cut in order to get the tumor. He added that it could be a long, difficult recovery.
I gave him permission to go for it.(What else am I supposed to do?)
This isn't looking good.
Oh, Red! Hope everything goes well with Mia.

Red, You/re very lucky to have mia. She teaches you how to love selflessly, and you teach her how to believe in things she cant comprehend.'

I ate squirrel once. I was about four. My great-grandmother's sister-in-law/third cousin (that would be my (for real) Appalachian hillbilly Aunt Vonnie) made it. It didn't faze me at the time, and as I recall it didn't taste gross or anything, but there's no way I would even consider it now. Yuk.

Pretty good! Talked to the vet this morning, they hadn't checked her out yet, but he did say she was complaining and being feisty, which is a good sign. They do have her on pain meds and anti-nausea meds. Too soon to know whether she's coming home today or tomorrow, until they check her temp (she was having trouble warming back up to 101 after surgery) and other stuff.

I'm taking THursday off so I can be home with her all day, at any rate. Probably skipping poker Friday night. Cancelled babysitting THursday night. Probably won't go to nick's niece's bday party (age 3!) on Saturday 1.5 hours away....

I'd rather have peace of mind and keep an eye on her.

Rose was noticeably needier last night (from the daytime boredom, I think).

I'm glad that things are sounding positive.

1.5 hour drive for a 3 year old's bday party? That's crazy. I MIGHT make that drive for a wedding, but that's about it for a one day event.
