Because he’s doing great today. And I’m celebrating that instead of wallowing in my worries. 🙂 ps.. my baby bullet is proving to be quite useful for creating meat smoothies for Chuck so that we can pump him up and get him fat 🙂 well. Not fat. But bigger again. And the smoothies seem to […]

more updates

July 10, 2013

Talked to the doctor about several issues today. First about his still lack of eating. We may end up bringing him in for some iv fluids to see if that helps. I asked about the prednisone and he still wants to hold off because of it interacting with his pain meds, specifically his deramaxx as […]

Chuck still isn’t eating. Is on metronidazole plus some appetite stimulant and now he’s added puking to the mix. Not often but twice now in the last 4 days. And he pukes up these orange things that look like carrots. He hadn’t eaten any carrots so I don’t know if it is his treats stained […]

sneaky boy

July 3, 2013

Last night chuck snuck upstairs and pretty much refused to leave my room. We have been gating off the stairs so he doesn’t climb them just for safety reasons. One of us will sleep downstairs with him just so he’s not lonely. Well he got passed them and would. Not. budge. I of course was […]
