I intended to update the blog Monday night to show you the new focal beads I'd made but our poor little cat had another blood clot. It was so unexpected as he had seemed so well but I guess that's the nature of the beast. He had just had some food and settled himself on my lap about 9.30 last night when he jumped off and his back legs just gave way. His back half was limp and he dragged himself along - it was so distressing. He didn't seem in too much pain though which was a blessing.
We got him to the vets straight away and he's still there now. We all went to see him this afternoon and he looked a lot better than I thought he would. He was very responsive, purring and rolling over. His back legs are still quite cold but the vet seems quite hopeful that he will get through this one. We'll know more tomorrow - keeping our fingers crossed that the movement will come back to his legs.
I've felt awful today but I've pushed myself to keep busy so I don't think about it too much. He's in the best place and they're doing all they can for him.
So now I'll show you the focal beads I made earlier last week. I used a lot of silver glass in these - I just love the ethereal effects you can get with it. I really like building up the layers of a bead using mainly transparents and lots of clear to create depth.
