Long days and longer nights.

One kitten, a 7 day old, is dehydrated and constipated. Requires subq fluids and enemas, and nothing is budging. She screams a lot, and why not? Her belly hurts.

It's going to be a heavy night shift with her -- I have to keep massaging, and trying to help her feel better.

Good thing we just have to clean the Sunday School building tomorrow before service, but I don't have to teach.
