That fucking biopsy hurt. I'm hoping it's due to an abundance of caution on the part of my doctor, who is awesome. (I'm still trying to get her to conduct all our interactions in French.)

More worrying to me is that Snowball is back at the vet's. I'm so glad I didn't have kids. It would kill me to see them miserable. He sleeps with his head on my pillow. I want him to be better. At least the Gabapentin the VA issued me once----apparently on the shotgun theory-----can be used on kitties in certain doses. Keep your fingers crossed.

Oh Gin, I'm so sorry. I know from experience that those things hurt like hell, even if you're given painkillers but truly, it's better to know and be treated than for it to go un-noticed. I know you don't like hugs so I won't offer them, but can I send virtual flowers instead? 💐🌸🌷🌹🌻🌺

I hope it all goes well for Snowball. It's really hard if they're in pain. We take care of them but they give so much in return. When I was going through chemo my Mikeneko and Takaraneko were with me whenever I was home, purring, snuggling, getting help if I needed it and bringing me home when I wandered (which happened a lot). I don't know what I'd have done without them.

Yeah, they use such innocuous language. I wound up taking TWO vidocans in ONE day, which is like heroin for me. Still didn't do shit. Argh.

Fred has taken up head butting and flopping duties, which means he flops against my face and nuzzles and purrs REALLY LOUDLY, before flopping over on his back and waiting for me to rub his tummy. He always winds up like that, purring madly.

I have such a weak spot for Snow, though, because he snuggles so adoringly. He rubs his cheek against you and sighs.

I finally saw what you meant by "flowers" when I saw this in email!

Take care of yourself as well as you take care of your kitties.

::skritches:: for Snowball. :-(

Owwwww. Hopes for both of you.

Those were two of the longer weeks of my life.

Biopsy, WHAT?! If it's the body part I think it is, yeah, those things hurt like fuck.

Urk! Whatever body part it is, it's not only painful, but nerve-wracking. Finger crossed for you and Snowball.

Having biopsies done sucks. Keeping good thoughts for you and Snowball.

Sending up prayers to the Goddess for you both.

This may sound silly, but have you tried Aleve or ibuprofen? Sometimes when the doctors give you the heavy-duty stuff I've discovered the everyday painkillers work better.

Hang in there, Gin.

Never met a biopsy that didn't hurt like a bastard. It sounds like such a mild word ... but no. Not remotely.

I hope both you and Snowball have good results. :\

Sorry you had an awful biopsy!

I hope Snowball feels better soon... have they figured it out yet? At least it's not FLV, thank God!
