Brittany and I noticed that Blue was acting a little different this afternoon. A bit more lovey than normal. Soon after she started labor. Within 3 1/2 hours we had 4 cute new kittens. I have to be honest and say that it was a bit gross to watch. Kind of like a car accident...you have to look even if you really don't want to. I'm glad we were there for her. The little one that Brittany is holding was the last one born and it's feet and tail were sticking out for a good 10 minutes and the sack was already broken. We helped get her out. We were so scared that she wouldn't live because she just laid there. She had a hard time breathing and it was apparent that she had taken in fluid. We cleaned her up and massaged her to give her stimulation. After several minutes she was doing much better and now momma kitty is taking good care of her as well as her siblings. The 2 gray ones were born first, then the 2 lighter ones. I had a dream 2 weeks ago that she was going to have 4 babies. I so love to be right. I can't wait to see them get a bit bigger and develop their personalities. Kitties are so fun!
In other news, The power went out here for a few hours and I got to looking at my keyboard and saw how dirty it was, so I took advantage of the lack of power and gave it a good scrubbing. You'd be surprised how gross they can get. Stop reading and look down at yours...I bet it's dirty...unless you're the only one who uses it. I have 8 people touching mine....really gross, honest!
I took Brittany to the doctor for a check up. She is now 29 weeks and doing great. Her doctor has decided to refer her to a group of high risk doctors so that the baby has all he needs when he is born to get prepared for surgery. I think this is a good plan since that doctor has only delivered one baby with gastroschisis. I want my grandson to have the best chance possible. My consultation appointment with the surgeon for my breast biopsy is on Monday morning and Brittany's next ultrasound is Tuesday, so I will be updating as I know things, so stay tuned! :o)
