Been a long day

Been a long day - Saw American machine, it was excellent - Seth Jarvis's performance, as a slow witted night manager of a plastics factory w/ a gimp arm and cleft pallete floored me, moved me even to almost tears. Theater, is not my cup of tea usually; something about the artifice of it's sets and the requirements of its characters to project and "play" to the audience... that being said, i found myself really being drawn in by his character. Go and see the show, if only to see his excellent acting, or Jenny's brilliant assistant-directing.

Oldham is having some problems - therefore I'm having some problems; he may or may not have ingested some chicken bones on Friday and the last few days have been an exercise in patience. I tried not to freak out; but the signs are all there - he thew up... he pee'd 3 times in a row ( a sign of distress...) he's developed chronic diarrhea and will suddenly start to try and hack something up to no success, tonight i picked him up and sat him on my lap and he start to breath heavy and whine a little... I called the Vet twice in the last few days and they had me put him on a white rice and cottage cheese diet, but what the fuck is that going to do for a chicken bone? Nothing apparently. Today i called another vet and they told me to bring him in first thing in the morning for test... Lets hope they can give me some answers, at the very least, i want to know if there's a chicken bone in there, and then we can go from there. Needless to say, i'm worried sick about the little guy.
