Last Jack update of the night. 
18th-Apr-2011 07:58 pm
*sigh* Okay.

Adam just got back from the animal hospital, and here's the skinny:

He definitely has a dental abscess. His jaw is definitely misaligned. We don't know why. When he's under anesthesia, they're going to see what they can find. They are running a shitload of tests - liver, cancer, infection under the abscess, seeing if the abscess has caused anything else. What happens from here will depend on what they find.

The low estimated total is $999.99.

The high estimated total is $1,835.13.

Have I mentioned that we also owe on taxes and for Explo? But Jack is family.

Starting tomorrow and until I have funds to cover Jack's treatment, I will be doing Wind Tunnel Dreams. For those who weren't here for the last round: WTD is a piece of flash fiction or poetry every day.

The theme of this WTD, because I need to be thinking about Shayara because y'know book contract and deadlines, is Shayara. You do not need to know anything about Shayara to prompt me. Random one-word prompts still work, I'll just be writing Shayara stuff out of 'em, so's you know.

If you donate and prompt me, I must use your prompt.

You can still prompt me if you can't donate, and I may use your prompt, but I'll prioritize paid prompts. If you don't have a prompt but are donating anyway, you can sponsor someone else's prompt.

There will also be a small auction. We have some collectible books, I have BPAL, I have stuff I've knitted (and I'm willing to do custom knitting). I am so not thinking about that tonight; we'll have to deal with it tomorrow.

You can leave your prompts here. If you donate, please also include your prompt in the PayPal notes field, because I may not know your legal name and want to make sure I get to your prompt if you paid for it!

Thank you and I am going to go curl up in a ball now.

EDIT: We have enough money, so I'm taking down the PayPal button, and the auction isn't necessary. Thank you so much!

Ugh, good luck.
There's a reason we call Mr. Poops 'the 20,000 dollar dog'.
It's such a tough situation.
I'm sending good thoughts Jack's way.

Can't think of any prompts off the top of my head, but I threw $10 in the pot...wish I could do more...Kitties are definitely family members, I hope Jack feels better soon!

Ugh, poor Jack. I hope it turns out to be something easily cured.

Prompt: miniatures

I just sent you a little bit...it's not much, but being a catmom myself, I know what you mean about them being family. *Sending good healthy wishes Jack's way*

Threw a little in the pot. If you're still short, we might be able to scare up a little more. This is where I'd usually type *hugs* but I'll save it for when next I see you. :)

I can't afford to donate, as we have our own tax issues, but I also have a house full of cats and know the need to scrape things together. When you hold your mini auction, I can offer a blue mink/cashmere scarf: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ginskye/cinnamon-grace (should be publicly viewable)

The yarn used in this project retailed for $46. PM me on ravelry if you'd like me to send the item to you, or directly to your auction winner.

Beautiful and it must be so soft - thank you!

I'm so strapped right now, I can't donate. But I can and will send out the signal. Blessings & light for Jack, you & your family.

If you so choose, here is a prompt: hope.

I donated but couldn't think of a prompt at the time. It just sort of hit me, but you're welcome to not use it: songs. As in, what are the songs of your characters and/or of your world?
19th-Apr-2011 01:58 am (UTC)
I threw 20 in the pot and re-posted to boost the signal. Prayers and healing calming thoughts and purrs are being sent to Jack.

Oh, man. Poor Jack. We've got taxes and medical bills (both human and fourlegger) out the wazoo right now, but I can join Chris in offering something for auction. I'll pick something from inventory tomorrow and email you.
19th-Apr-2011 10:44 am (UTC)
*hug* Thank you - and I'm sorry I missed tonight! We've been a collective wreck over here...
19th-Apr-2011 03:55 am (UTC)
I'm so terribly sorry. Uly's going to cost me another $400 at the end of the month, so I'm not in any condition to help, but I want you to know I understand.

Here by way of phenom_woman. Threw in what I could because, well, KITTEH. Best wishes to you and Jack and Jack's teef.
19th-Apr-2011 10:45 am (UTC)
Thank you!
19th-Apr-2011 05:06 am (UTC)
I donated, but don't worry about a prompt. Kitties have to be taken care of.
