Wet. That’s what today has been. Torrential downpours and then spotty showers. Aja doesn’t like any of it, especially the thunderstorms. She awakened us at 6:30 this morning with an urgent need to go outside! And boy did she need to go. About 2 hours later she went out again and peed for about 30 seconds. The doctor wasn’t kidding when he said she would want to eat, pee and poop more!

She had her second dose of Prednisone this morning and seems to be doing okay. It’s me that can’t remember one med from the other! Thank God the doctor wrote it all out for me! I tacked it to the fridge and refer to it often. Is she eating more? No, but that’s only because I won’t let her. Is she begging for more food, oh yeah. Everything I am seeing is what the vet told me would happen with the Prednisone. What concerns me now is the whining. Randomly she will whine like she wants something or needs to go out but usually she has just been out. “Out” is averaging once every 2 hours now. She does not appear to be in pain. Heck, she’s even frisky! We had leftover stew for dinner and there was a very little bit left so I mixed it in with Aja’s food. Well, typical of Aja, she could not get it all out of the bowl and knowing there was still some in there she wouldn’t let either one of our cats near that area! She would gently nudge them away and literally block their path! “Mommy” had to go hold the bowl so she could finish it.

So, all in all it was a good Aja day. More meds tonight, Benadryl and Pepcid. Maybe, just maybe, she will let us sleep past 6:30 tomorrow! Thank you Lord for the Blessings of this day and for keeping us strong.
