tra la la

felix seems to think that jack got out. he's been howling at the back door all night. i let him out with me for a while and he searched the back yard. but he can't find his buddy.

i'm staying up all night to make sure i'm up by the time the vet calls first thing when she gets in. hopefully, jack's fever will have broken and he can come home. leeloo is next to go in. she's showing symptoms of the cold. felix, simon and freddie are fine, though. simon, of course, he keeps to himself. felix was sneezing a lot, but got over that a couple of days ago. freddie is just freddie, happy and fat and tiny-headed.

i slept all evening. doc did dishes, which is good, they were all his. i really hate doing other people's dishes. hell, i hate doing my own. but that's something else.

the vet just called

jack's temperature has gone up to 104, after it went down to 102 yesterday. she thinks he has a virus. she told me what it was called, "trachy-something", i don't remember it, but it's an irritation in the very back of his throat, which would also cause the prolific slobbering.

i can't even think about it right now. poor jack. i told doc and now i'm leaving him alone with it. if only i can get felix to leave him alone.

jack update

his fever finally broke around 6 tonight. if they can get it down to 102.5 by tomorrow, we can take him home. he ate a lot, is hydrated, and is peeing. the vet was hopeful. so am i now. maybe i can get some sleep tonight.

doc called mike and told him teck tore up the carpet and it was time for them to go. mike called back twice, but didn't leave a voicemail either time. prick. i'm not keeping those cats. no way.

doc invited me over to Brooklyn's place tonight, but i decided i'd rather go to bed at a normal hour. which will be soon.

did i mention that my brand new ambien prescription disappeared right at the time mike and i started fighting? i don't know where it is, but it wasn't with all my other meds. so i've been taking an OTC PM medication to sleep. just not every night, every three or so nights. i also have trazodone left, but that leaves me so hung over and hungry, it's hardly worth the sleep.

i hope jack can come home tomorrow. i miss him. i keep seeing the back of freddie and thinking it's jack. *sigh*
