Good to have an answer, as far as no blockages or masses.  Hope you find a definite explanation soon!

Jennie's x rays dind't show anything serious such as blockages or masses.  The only odd thing (according to the vet) was gas bubbles in her stool, which, vet says, indicates some sort of digestive problem. These would be stools resulting from canned food, as she's been ojn mostly caned for the last 2 days.

Nothing that would show a possible cause for the bloody stool.  I've made Jennie's appointment with the internal medicine specialist, it's not until October 26.

Not sure how to proceed, did ask vet her opinion on the FMT..asked her to think about it and look into it before giving me her opinion.

Vet still seems to think the blood is irritation, small ulcerations in her digestive tract that need more time to heal.

I wish Jennie could take slippery elm bark I am sure that's what she needs, but it makes things worse for her.

4:45 nothing like the sound of a furry retching or has SO added a new tune to his repertoire? My trusted tiny flashlight and I check for evidence. Nothing:) Cruelly ignoring three starving fur balls I crawled back into bed. No, I was not giving up the 30 minutes until the alarm goes off. And off it went! It sounded like Izzi was bringing up her insides when she presented a monster of a mini hair ball on the rug in the bedroom. That cocked little head and the big question on her face - I was bad but it had to happen. Poor little thing!!! She gets brushed at least twice per day but the Floof as a friend calls it is getting longer and more by the day. Bizzi has a part in the center as the dark strand of grain hair is weighing the Floof down. All is well. The other present was under the office chair. Let's see what the day brings.

A lot may have to do with construction - insulation and airflow.

SO put in a whole house fan Friday/Saturday. One of the things he missed from the other houses.

Can you open all windows today trying to air things out? When will your new fan come? Can you replace ceiling fixtures with fans with light kits?

It's too hot to open the windows. I open them at night. :)

 I cannot replace ceiling fixtures with fans because 1) I hate ceiling fans and 2) this is not my property.

The fan has been delivered according to the tracking. I'll pick it up tomorrow after work.

Post office doesn't deliver on Sundays. And I use a PO box.   The post office is closed on Sundays and I use a post office box, so even if it had been scanned in I wouldn't be able to get it. Maybe your carrier is using his truck for personal use or maybe he works on Sunday in some other capacity than delivering mail.

The fan has been delivered, according to the tracking. Must have come in late yesterday afternon (after the PO was closed to customers)

If you have Sprouts in your area pls check their weekly specials - lots of lavender.

No Sprouts around here.  I'm in the NorthEast.

There is actually a lavender farm not far from me that I visited this summer.  I didn't buy any of the products, though:  I had wanted to buy some liquid hand soap, but it didn't really smell like lavender.   :-\

Your property most likely is well insulated.  Mine isn't.  As soon as I turn the ac off, the cool disappears. Oh well, what would I do if I dind't have something to whine about right?

The fan is scheduled to be delivered today "by 8 pm" but of course, the post office isn't open after 12 so I'm out of luck until Monday.  Silly7

Your PO doesn't deliver on Sundays?  I sometimes see our carrier driving around on Sundays.  I think they just started doing that this year.

As for insulation . . . I have no idea.  I have an evergreen behind my deck, which faces on the south/southeast side, so it blocks a lot of the sun.  That's great for keeping my place cooler in summer, not so much for letting the sun warm my home in the winter since it keeps its needles.  The issue I have is that a unit on one side of me is vacant, so there's no one there heating/cooling it.  So my heat (in winter) or a/c (in summer) seeps through the wall to go into the other unit.  And now the unit next to THAT one is also vacant, so there's no one on the other side to help heat/cool it with me.   :(  Oh well, not much I can do about it.

I hope your fan comes soon!   fingerscrossed fingerscrossed fingerscrossed fingerscrossed
