Re: Pumpkin's renal profile
Pumkin is going to pick up on your stress and that isn't good for
him. Try and calm down. Pum has no problem with what is happening -
animals are really ok with death.
Testing and retesting for no reason is no good for Pumkin. Just try
and stabalize and let things sit for a while. Sometimes doing nothing
is the hardest thing to do - but the RIGHT thing to do.
So calm calm calm...all the tears in the world don't change the facts
and I know how you must feel. Oh God do I think I know...but try and
be brave for Pum's sake right now. He needs his Mommy strong.
We are here for you....I know it's so hard sweetie...hang in there.
