"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction"-Thomas Jefferson

Update on Pritsha

No kidney disease..but we're not sure what IS wrong with her. Her bloodwork came back that she was low in protein, VERY low in potassium, anemic, very high red and white blood cell counts and several other numbers were off. The vet believes there might be a problem in her intestines that isn't allowing her to absorb nutrients.

Right now our plan of action is giving her potassium gel twice a day and force feeding her 'critical care' food (very soft pate style food that I can squeeze into her mouth) when she doesn't eat (which is often). Today however, we've been lucky-we gave her some catfish and she devoured it! YAH! I'll be making a trip to Kroger again soon to buy more for her!
