This is Dolly.
She is about 16 years old and I have had her since she was a kitten.
We lost her brother last year just before Christmas because of renal failure.
Now Dolly has been diagnosed with it.
She isn't feeling very well these days and has lost a lot of weight. Medications that the doctors had her on have killed her appetite and I am struggling with my anxiety over this. Struggling so much that I have broken down and asked my own doctor for something for anxiety as I am having trouble coping. Part of this is due to my past mental breakdown. I always knew there would be something that might trigger it again and Dolly's illness is it.
She doesn't seem to be in any pain and I won't go through what we did with Deeb last year. It is just not fair.
At the moment I am doing everything I can for Dolly and I don't feel much like blogging. When the mood strikes and perhaps while Dolly is napping - I'll get on with the story. Until then - pray for Dolly and for me too.
