Found in the rubble of yesterday's killer tornado,
it reads:

"the most important things in life aren't things"

We're overwhelmed.
We're sad.

Words fail at times like these.

Please consider donating to the Red Cross.

And hug your loved ones tonight.

Kidney Kitty -- Part 3

Well, our little kidney cat is hanging in there...

We had been giving him Procrit for his anemia for the last few months, and it was an amazing wonder drug.  He totally returned to his normal self while he was on it.

Unfortunately, he developed antibodies which keep the drug from working, so we had to quit giving it to him.  So now the anemia has returned and will get worse.  And actually, it will do him in way before his kidneys play out.

But he’s doing well, all things considered.  And while we may not have him much longer, at least we don’t have any regrets.  He’s our sweet baby, and we would do whatever for him.  ♥

Hindsight being 20:20…  I wish we had started him on Pet Tinic and Azodyl the day we learned he had kidney disease.  Who knows if it would’ve changed anything, but you always learn things when you go through stuff, and that’s what I would have done differently.

I’ve also learned (from us giving him fluids every day) that if you do something every day, you not only get better at it, it even seems easy after awhile. 

Because at first, giving him fluids was a monumental and seemingly insurmountable task.  Now, it’s no big deal.

I also wish I had known from the very beginning about the Walgreen’s Prescription Card that you can get for your pet.  For $20 a year, it has saved us tons

One bag of fluids from the vet was $20.  It’s $1.83 from Walgreen’s with the card.  (We go through a bag about every 10 days.)  The card saved us about $150 on the Procrit alone!  I could go on and on.  And who knew?

I found out about it on THE chronic kidney disease cat website:  That website has helped us in countless ways.  So if you have a cat with kidney disease, go there first.  Then read my blog posts on the matter.  J

He’s curled up sleeping right now, and that’s a good thing.

Quote o' the Day

To paraphrase Wayne Dyer,
ask yourself this question:

“Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?"

Word filled vs Spirit filled

Colossians 3:16-17

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Ephesians 5:18-21

And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.

Do you see the similarities??

A Word-filled Life:  psalms, hymns, thankfulness…

A Spirit-filled Life:  psalms, hymns, thankfulness….

They’re the same!

Do you want a Spirit-filled life? 
Fill it with the Word!
