Nala, my ferret, is very old. She is very old and now she is very shakey. She can't walk very well anymore or eat very well. She seems happy enough sort of stumbling around the cage or laying quietly in my arms. I don't think Nala is going to be with me much longer and there isn't anything I can do. But she's scared me before so maybe I'm wrong. Gods I hope I'm wrong.

EDIT: Now she toddling around eating food again. Hmm I guess she just wanted to scare me senseless and prevent me from cleaning my room. *sigh*

Alright here is where things stand at present.

Car: Definitely fucked. I got a second opinion which was the same as the first but mostly I was shopping around for pricing. I'm looking at between 1500-2000 dollars of transmission work. The kicker here is that they just extended the warranty for my model car because of, you guessed it, transmission problems. I am literally 1000 miles over the new limit. I spoke to a very nice gentleman at the Honda dealership who said to bring the car on Monday and he what he could do after a call to Honda America. So that is waiting until Monday to be settled. I talk to my mother tonight about her giving me a possible loan of cash to fix my car.

Gathers: As of now I am going to the HK Gather for sure. I'll be driving down tomorrow as planned and driving back with Kae and Gryphon. WtT is up in the air still. If my car is covered under warranty still I will be going for sure because the rental will be included in the warranty. If it isn't I'm canceling out of WtT as I just don't have the extra cash to rent a car to get there. So that's a half yay and a half suck. I was so looking forward to seeing all my long-distance friends and now I won't see have of them so bollocks.

Timon: The doc said to go ahead and up his meds again. I'm starting that today.

So that is where things are at for me right now. I still need to pack and get ready for HK this weekend. I'm sorry Pink and Joe I probably won't be able to do a cake for you unless we find an oven I can use sometime this weekend. Sorry guys, next year for sure. I guess I should go pack. Today has been a day.

And another seizure. Timon is definitely coming with me. I'm calling the vet in the morning to see if maybe I should up his meds. This one didn't get nearly as far. I though he wasn't feeling well earlier today but I wasn't sure. It slowly evolved into a full twitching fit I just caught him at. He has been dosed with honey and some baby food. He is now tooling around his cage right as rain. I need to get some sleep but I want to watch him for a little while longer.

3:43 and I'm awake. Why? Because my bodies idea of sleep consists of either getting too much at once or not enough. Is there no middle ground!!!


Hmm I need an insomnia Icon.

EDIT: 5:35 and I was working on my post for the writing group I'm on. This weeks topic is the trait which defines you. I have picked a trait and then I started writing the post in my head while trying to sleep. The post in my head was turning out really well so I decided to just go ahead and put it to paper. Epic fail. Grrrr I'll try again later.

Let the ferrets out one at a time for some ferret exercise. This means turning the bench into a jungle gym with the pillows and blankets and letting them wander all over the main room while I watch. They are both very cute and enjoy it immensely. Nala (the girl) is really active. She runs and jumps all over the pillows. Today her and Mika were playing tag. She had fun running all over the place. I would be much happier to have her out and playing but she damned well bites. Usually she doesn't bite hard and so far she has not broken the skin. She did get a bit excited and bit me harder then normal and so I have a small welt on my hand now. Not a big deal. I will eventually socialize her enough to break the biting habit. Unfortunately, the biting means she isn't as popular nor as easy to have out. I'm not gonna let her bite one of the kids for way too many reasons to write out. I have to keep a real solid eye on her at all times unlike Timon. So Nala doesn't get out as much. She had a ball today and was amazingly cute bouncing all over the place. Timon also got some play time and while more sedate, seemed to enjoy himself just fine. I take Timon out probably twice as much as Nala. One, because he doesn't bite and is a very mellow little ferret. Two, because he is still sick and I like keep a good eye on him.

What I really need for the ferrets is one of these:

I could set it up in the living room while watching tv or interacting with other people and let the ferrets play around while I did other things. Eventually I'll get one. They are just a bit pricey and I really have other things I need to get. *sighs* Next bit of cash though I think. If anyone ever sees one for cheap let me know.

Alright maybe now some more sleep.

My big summer trip is starting in about four days. I'm going to be gone for almost two weeks. I'm not packed or anything yet so it is time for me to get busy. I still have no plans for the three days between gathers. I suspect if I don't find anyone to hang out with I'll just bum around for a few days and see the sights or whatever. Being an only child is really rather practical at times. I'll be back in time for my youngest daughter's birthday which is good. Though I don't think we've got any party stuff planned yet. Bugger.

It will be nice to get away for a while and visit old friends. I always miss my family while I'm gone but I so seldom see long distance friends it is a real treat. Plus the summer months are full of boring for me and my head hasn't been in the best space lately. Activity will be good for me.

Timone had another seizure today. I'm really a bit worried about leaving him home. I think I'm going to see if I can take him with me. For the most part it isn't a big deal. I have a cage he can travel in the car in. I'm not worried about the hotel. I've had too much experience at this sort of thing from my youth. I have to ask Ri if it would be okay to take him with my to Thresholds though. I'd keep him with me the entire time and Zeb was allowed a few years back so we'll see. He wouldn't be running loose. I'm just really worried about leaving him home.

On other pet news my birds are dead. One got herself caught in the cage and it wasn't pretty. The other just rather fell over dead. I don't know why the boy died. I guess the stress from having the girl get caught was too much for him. I'm rather sad about it actually. I really liked having my cute little chirping budgies. *sighs* Now I really don't want to leave Timone alone. Oh and Kumori has an eye infection now. *stressed* WTF, mate? What is up with all the pets?

Welcome to Timone the Ferret ^_^
Just back from the vet. Timone is doing okay. He is fairly perky today which is good. His overall health looks really good. No weird lumps they could find etcetera. He is now going on Prenisone twice a day. There are a few things it could be. We are hoping it was just the stress of his move that caused him to have some sugar issues. I have separated him and Nala so that should reduce his stress. Also a diet change was recommended. I have been thinking about a whole food diet anyhow so I will try and switch him over to that. Otherwise the diabetic cat food diet is highly recommended.

So my paranoia was a bit premature. I always do that but anyhow. So there is a definite light at the end of the tunnel. We'll see how Timone responds to all this and go from there.

Oh and if anyone local ever needs vet care I HIGHLY recommend Conwall Veterinary Hospital. They weren't too pricey and the vet lady was super super nice and helpful.

I'm about to take little Timone to the vet. I'm dreading going. I just have this feeling that he is dying and there really isn't anything to be done about it. I don't want that feeling to be confirmed.

Here I go.

*sighs* So I'm sitting here shaking. Timone had another episode tonight. The lady I got him from said he has always been in perfect health which is just plain wrong. He is getting worse. It took me 15 minutes to get him to respond once I noticed he was seizing again. After I got him up I fed him some ham and let him toddle to bed. I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow but now that I'm really looking him over I just don't know if he can get better. He is so thin. I remember when I first picked him up I thought so but figured I just hadn't felt a ferret in so long I was wrong. I'm just not sure what to do. I'll take him into the vet and see what they say.

*sigh* I'm really rather fond of the little shit.


Oh and I think the snakes are boinking.
*sigh* And because this week just has to get worse here is todays news. My car is acting funny and needs to go into the shop asap. Jeff says I need a transmission fluid change and that may fix the issue. If not here's to more money gone.

The worst news is that little Timone the Ferret is sick. I think he has Insulinoma. He had an episode earlier today which fits all the aspects of a insulinomia attack including drooling, limpness, dazed expression and what I'm figuring out now where probably seizures. He is an older ferret and the disease is pretty common. i was not told about this when I picked him up though I really don't think is previous owner knew. I've got to find a ferret vet around here to take him to tomorrow. Evidently you can treat it in various ways but it is more work and money. I don't really care about the work and all I can do is pray the money isn't too much. I've already grown quite attached to the little guy. The episode was really rather scary. I'm glad I had him sitting on my lap though and was able to quickly look up both what was wrong with him and what to do about it. Amazing what a little honey can do. I may try switching him to an all meat diet as I've read that really helps ferrets not get sick.

Today sucked and I have a horrible headache. There is some other stuff happening but that is not my story to tell.

EDIT: But the day can in fact get worse. While being nice and fetching the Jones from the bus stop I got a ticket because I didn't stop well enough at the really annoying stop sign down the street. The cop was nice though. My head hurts I'm going to sleep before the urge to cry becomes actual crying.

Here's a quickie post. The new ferret has arrived and they are getting along alright. A bit of fighting as they develop a pecking order but otherwise things are okay. They are both very handleable and do not seem inclined to bite. The boy is curled up in his little nest and the girl is for some reason curled up on the friggin' shelf under the water bottle. Weirdo ferret.

I'm really fucking tired and I need to get my stupid lexapro script dropped again. So nap for me. i have finals all this week oh the yay. I'm gonna spend later tonight and all of tomorrow studying like a fiend. I have two on tuesday, one on thursday and one on friday. Yay the fun of my life *chuckles*. I suspect I will do alright. I need more time to studying but I feel okay. Not great but okay. It was a tough semester for so many reasons but I got through it and I think I'm going to pass everything. I may not get wonderful grades but i think i'll still pass well enough.
*blinks* Whoa tired.

We have a new addition to the family. I picked up Timone the Ferret yesterday. He is super mellow and cute. At present he is asleep in my room which is where and what I think I'm going to be doing soon. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep his name or not.

Happy Mother's day to everyone. I figure even if you are not a mother or even a girl you have someone to celebrate this with. Unless you are a spontaneously generated construct and then Happy Spontaneous Generation Day.

Today I'm picking up a new bird cage which may or may not be shoved into storage. I'm also picking up another ferret named Princess who will definitely be getting renamed. Not sure what yet. I've been sticking with the Harry Potter theme for my pets lately so maybe I'll continue.

Hmm sleep....

(two seconds ago)
Jack: Mommy! Gwennie just spit on me!
*sigh* Please don't be one of those days.... Gwennie, after I talked to her, has gone back to playing nicely so yay. They had a really funny conversation involving the MuffinMan earlier that made me wish I had a recorder. Most times their conversations are, like everyoone's, fairly blaze but once in a while they are a laugh riot.

So I just woke up after having dreams about dinosaurs, hateful people, superpowers, oh yes and what was the last thing... hmm oh yeah amazing sex. *face palms* Okay libido you and I need to have a serious talk. I realize it is summer and you are bored but um seriously could you cool down a bit.

On a more serious note I went to the doctor's office today. I highly recommend the entire hospital up in Rock Hill. I had to go to a couple different floors for things and everyone was super nice and helpful. I saw my endocrinologist (thanks Nello he rocked!), got an ultrasound of my throat (so cool!), and then spoke with a sleep specialist because they have a sleep lab in the building as well! It was like one stop shopping. I'm supposed to go back tomorrow to visit the pulmonary guy and sleep specialist but i think I need to reschedule. They took six vials of blood to test me for everything under the sun. I also have a 24 hour urine test i have to take. (can we say yum!) Then I go back next week to see the doctor about my test results. Hopefully this will rule out a half a dozen things and we can see how screwy my thyroid really is. After all that i came home and crashed. Didn't get more then an hours sleep yesterday so i was tired. I only just woke up and I'll probably try and head back to sleep again here shortly.

Oh yeah and my sourdough cultures arrived. *evil grin* I have a surprise for the Kheprians bwhahaha!

Oh and I might be getting a ferret and some free birds squee!

Hope you your world is going well LJ. ^_^
