My Poor Kitty

Bacardi hasn't been feeling well the last few days so I took him in to the vet today. It turns out he is in Renal failure. So, out of the myriad of costly options available, I chose to take him home with fluids and have him retested on Friday and then go from there. I am hoping that he got into something outside and the fluids will flush his kidneys and then he can heal up and be okay. The other, and more likely, scenario is that he has congenital renal failure and this isn't going to help. If that is the case, then we have to have him put down.
I have been having a really hard time with this today. He has been more than a cat to me. There were times where I felt like he was my only friend. He could always tell when I was feeling down and needed extra cuddling, or if I needed my mind taken off of something he would bring me his ball and we would play fetch. He even saved my life, although that is a long story for another time.
I don't know what I am going to do if he doesn't pull out of this. The vet hasn't given me much hope though.
So, if anyone is actually reading this, please pray for my sweet little Bacardi and that he gets better really soon.

So, we finally got rain...

but it needs to stop now. I want to go out to play with Will. I bought him this really cool tube thing that plays music that he can go in the lake with, but it is still in the box because it won't warm back up!
So, today we are going to the Children Museum instead of playing outside. I think Will is getting a bit bored with playing on the living room floor for the last week, if he isn't I am at least! Then it is off to try on my bridesmaid dress for Dana's wedding. I so hope it is too big for me! They ordered a larger size in case I didn't lose the baby weight, well I am only up five pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight right now. Although, that five pounds is in all of the wrong places lol.
Will is still in speech therapy to learn how to eat. It is slow going, but I can't wait till he gets over his aversion. Matt and I are major foodies and all we want to do is introduce new foods to Will! We will get there though.
Will is up from the 5th percentile to the 6th now. It isn't a lot, but it is in the right direction so I will be happy with that.
Here is one of Will's 10 month (sniff sniff) pictures that I took at the walking trails by our house. Enjoy!!
