We’re stewing today because we’ve got to take Robbie to another corner of the state tomorrow to get radioactive iodine treatment for her hyperthyroid condition.
We’re not worried about the treatment itself, because so many people say it really works. It’s more the early-morning drive on the Garden State Parkway, with the cat screaming bloody murder all the way there, crazy Jersey drivers all around us, and a not at all user-friendly veterinary practice where they won’t let you take your cat into the building, they’ll come out and get her, etc. They’re still in full-throttle COVID mode.
We’ll have to leave her there for several days because she’ll be “hot” from the treatment. Again, people say it really works. But we’re not used to there being no little girl-cat in our home and I expect we’ll fret in spite of reassurances that all will be well. It’s like checking your child into the hospital. Not very soothing.
I just can’t do any more nooze today. Please pray for us.
