Friday-9:45am: Karma's results

I think Karma is in the clear!
I got an email from them yesterday afternoon.  Here--I'll let you judge for yourself:
We got Karma's urine today and were able to recheck her urinalysis. Overall it is much improved with no sign of white or red blood cells and very little bacteria. She does have a lot of struvite crystals, however these can form when urine sits, and I understand that Karma's sample was about 20 hours old, so this is to be expected. Hopefully the crystals developed as the urine sat and not in Karma's bladder!
I am encouraged by these results. I hope she is doing well at home.
 Sounds mostly positive, right?  Leah thought so.  She was less bothered by the crystal confusion than I was...and now that I said crystal confusion...
...Tommy James & The Shondells have ear wormed me and brought me back to being 18 in 1969--LOL!
Their most popular song, though, was Crimson and Clover:

Played on the radio endlessly.
I must be getting nostalgic with my birthday coming up and realizing how many decades have gone by--ROFL!  
I know some of you will ask--I'll be 62 on the 28th.  Been an amazing journey so far.  :):)
Anyways, happy that Karma is likely cured, (I'm feeling better, too), the sun is out, has warmed up to zero degrees, Leah finished putting the cards together last night, and I am just waiting on the last five addresses to fill out envelopes for her.  Karma is crying at the porch door to go out (not for long when she realizes how cold it is out there).  
Have a great day!!!

Thank God, and boy do I remember those songs. I don't think I'd ever seen a photo of them before. Crimson and clover over and over . . . now that song will run through my head all day.

Love you and Karma dearly,

Dear Rita, what a relief--that Karma is better. I hope this will lighten your spirits also and help you feel much better.

You'll be 62 on the 28th and I'll be 77 on the 1st! Fifteen years difference and yet we are so alike when it comes to loving the cats with whom we live. Peace.
