It's not quite the same as some other bad personal news out there, but Molly is terribly sick. My mother noticed that she was very lethargic today, and even refused to explore the house when given the chance. She took her to the vet, and she was very anemic. They gave her some iron injections, and she's still alive for the moment. If my mother hadn't intervened, Molly wouldn't be here, now. So, in the way-off chance that prayer or positive thinking will help, please focus your chakra into your keyboard. If it doesn't, at least your kind words will be appreciated, and we won't have wasted government money studying it. Just a few small amounts of time. (Please, no jokes relating to that slightly negative result from that one study.)
UPDATE: Seems Molly's started responding well to treatments. The vets think she'll make it out of this.
SUPER UPDATE: Molly's just fine, now. Blood parasite defeated by antibiotics.
