Still Waiting for the Cat

We were determined to get a new tabby last Saturday, but with my daughter's surgery and later complications, the search just didn't happen.

But she did get a cat scan yesterday at the hospital.

We talked to her about buying a cat and bringing it into the hospital to "scan" her since what was not happening at the hospital just made the wait feel that much longer. Why is it that it takes two hours or more to get a cat scan, and then two additional hours for the doctors to read it?

(You should know that there were 7 car accidents that happened while we were in the ER, and that may have had something to do with the wait).

The good news is that the news wasn't infection. It wasn't appendicitis. It was a bit of hemorrhaging that had stopped and was trying to heal.

We were allowed to leave the hospital late last night and my daughter slept comfortably the entire night. She is doing better this morning, and we are praying that things continue to move in a positive direction.

We may get the cat this Saturday, though we are all pretty tired of cat scans, abdominal pain, and other abnormalities. Can we include nurses?


Thank you for your comment.
