thanks so much to everyone who has offered words of support and encouragement for roswell. i have some news, but nothing conclusive. i went back to visit her last night and she was no longer in the serious thrashing throes of the seizure she was when we got to the hospital. she was shivering and unable to walk. when she'd try, she'd fall over and her head would bob oddly. she was in an oxygen tent. i gave her a little scratch on the head but figured that even my being there was adding stress and all she probably wanted to do was curl up in a corner and be alone. someone from the ICU will call me sometime after 12:00 to let me know when i can go visit her. hopefully i'll be able to talk to her doctor then.
it's weird, but reassuring, to think that out there are a couple of hundred people who care about one tiny little kitten in west philly and what happens to her.
