I'm a survivor...

declares N'Djema.

This morning, I felt her gums were paler and her stomach felt a bit hard. She still hadn't passed stools, so I couldn't judge that and she doesn't want me taking her temperature. So I asked J to take her to the vet.

The vet says she has a sprain* in her front left leg (the back left is the one that was amputated when we saved her), but other than that, he says her internal organs seem to be fine. He told J that if she had internal bleeding, she would have died within a few hours, but I'm not in agreement with that since I know it can take longer, as it did for Tiboy.

Anyhow, she is on painkillers and is taking it easy.

Thank you so much to everyone for your good thoughts.  *hugs*

*It could be a small fracture instead and we'll know in a few days if she continues to limp.

Oh, what a relief that there is hope!

Holding my thumbs* for all turning out well for N'Djema.

* you can say it that way in English? It means holding the thumb inside the fist for luck

She seems much improved, so we think she's going to pull through. It would be a great shock now if she didn't.

I like the image of tucking your thumb into your fist. In English we usually say "cross our fingers" for luck and then cross the middle finger over the index. :D

She is resting a lot, but considering she is a cat, that is not unusual. :P

Thanks. The swelling is gone from her face, and her limp is less pronounced.
