Days of Clyde's Lives
Sunday Day of Rest and Prayer
Day Five--The Clyde Saga, Resting Comfortably
"And on the 5th day, Clyde rested..."
(no blasphemy intended)
The powerful impact of the Shaman's healing started to be felt immediately last night, so much so that Clyde decided to sleep on his back and snore. (Things must be improving).
Today was a day of rest and prayer. I offered incense and some HTML help to the Spirits, and Clyde offered a dead beetle he found on the porch, and a nugget of food that got stuck in his teeth. He wanted to add some fur, but the altar was getting pretty crowded, so the Spirits told him, "It's the thought that counts, dear."
Clyde took his treatment with the usual grace and elegance that I have come to expect from him. That sunny window sure helps!
He has so much fluid in him that he looks like a water balloon and jiggles like a bowl of gelatin. The Vet said that would happen. Gravity has its say in all this, and a lot of the fluid slides down into his front legs, making him swagger when he walks and unable to jump up onto things. So, I have to help him out. The poor thing is very comical as he struggles to climb into the windowsill or hamper! He seems in good spirits and his fur is not shedding as badly as it has been.
He's dying to go out into the garden. But, his harness was bought when he was a kitten and no longer fits, so I can't put him on a leash, and there's no way he's going out there alone! I tried to distract him with computer manuals, but somehow, these no longer interest him. I guess I need to get some upgrades.
So, I took him to a matinee at CLAW Theater for the special production of Snow White. He totally enjoyed it and is now dreaming of the happy ending. Do drop by and see this great purrformance.
We made offerings to the spirits in thanksgiving for the help received, and I, human unit exhausted, am using the quiet time to get pages created for you all.
I have your letters and prayers, some of them at least, posted now.
I tried to include the links you provided to your wonderful pages, but in some cases either I lost them (can we say, Bookmark?) or scrambled them up. When you look at these pages, if you find an error, please report it to me and I will fix.
(6/99 Note: Clyde recieved hundreds of letters and prayers of support during his illness, and CHU is grateful for each and every one. CHU only got a few of them posted before little Clyde died. After that, well, CHU just lost the will to do much of anything for a while.
The letters that ARE posted show how much support Clyde received at this terrible time.
The link to the letters pages is provided for historical purposes. Some of the URLs contained in them are no longer current.
Some of the pages in this section are incomplete or poorly designed due to the stressful situation. Sorry.
To LETTERS and PRAYERS
Some of you have sent the most wonderful images. They are quite large though, and I felt you'd never forgive me if I put them into web pages because of the time it would take to download. So I mention them, but don't display them. I have to think of a way to post them. They are so beautiful, I want everyone to see them.
I also found out that the mewsic Josquin des Pres sent to Clyde was done with the cooperation of his good friend, Queen Elizabeth I. Apparently, they got together in the Matrix of Alternative Time (of Time Travel Clyde fame) and sent it for a very special reason. Those historical scamps!
I got the story off the "Alternative Times" - ("All the news that's never fit to print.") and will post the episode in Time Travel Clyde when I can get it done. There is also a mention that Dr. Frankenstein has offered to give a second medical opinion "Kidney problems? Oh, I can fix that!". What's next, will Count Dracula offer a blood transfusion? We may see what's up in a few days.
Finally, I would like to mention our gratitude to Clyde's fairy godmother, Auntie Pasto, whose magic turned a lemon into a Cadillac and has been transporting Clyde back and forth to the Vet's.
May we all have good rest and peace this sweet Sunday.
Tomorrow, Clyde goes back to the Vet for another blood test. He's asleep, instead of studying right now. I hope I don't have to hire a tutor!
Your letters are a great support. I read them all to Clyde, who licks his paw. That's a pretty big compliment!
Many thanks, and please keep the prayers up for the test results tomorrow. If Clyde passes, we can graduate to "Kidney Repair 101". (No offense, but I really don't want to take up Dr. Frankenstein's offer.)
