Provincetown, Tworkov and Miss Emily

My last little vacation trip was to Provincetown to see the Jack Tworkov show at the art museum. I arrived so early, to avoid the traffic, that I walked around for awhile and found this sign. No bikes in sight though. Of course not much opens in P-town until 11am so I had a long wait.

Just one of the many cute buildings in the town. The Tworkov show was very well put together, moving from early work to later and including a display of letters written to him by the likes of Bill de Kooning and so forth. Later, I went into a small gallery down by WOMR radio and found another display of Tworkov's pencil sketches.

A peek-a-boo hint of the harbor. I returned to New Hampshire safely to find Miss Emily on the edge of death. She is at the vets now being rehydrated. I visited her today and am close to thinking I must put her to sleep. She is so listless and sad. She became emaciated in the three weeks I was gone and lost so much weight that she got fatty liver. She can't focus and seems dazed. Today they are trying feeding tubes to see if that will help.

There is another very stressful situation that arose too toward the end of my vacation. So I may not write much while I try to work things out. Thank you all for your comments on my vacation posts. I am slowly reading a few of your posts, but I'll never catch up to three weeks worth! Namaste, Suki

Oh dear, poor Miss Em. I'm so sorry to hear that she isn't doing well. Maybe she'll perk up now that you're back. I'm glad you had a nice vacation. Getting away for a while is so mind-clearing. Hope you work out your problems.

Poor Miss Emily. You will have to do what is best for her. I am glad you have returned home. You were needed. I enjoy seeing the peeks you give us of your outings.

Did someone not take good care of the cat or was she having health issues before you left? How sad either way. So sorry and hope she can be revived. Such a sweet kitty.

I am glad the three weeks went well. But sorry to hear there is something else you need to "clean up"...hope not too serious.

Wishing you well in all ways.
No need to catch up...just come in when you can.

Oh Suki, I feared this would be the case. I'm so terribly sorry for you and your sweet cat.

I have seen many cases of hepatic lipidosis. If you would like some friendsly council, please email me. I'd be happy to call you and hold your hand through this.

It's so sad to come home to another crisis after your wonderful trip away.

I'm here if you need to talk.
