A week in review....
Mom has been working all week, so she hasn't had the time to help us post or to go visit our friends! But yesterday she was home from work sick(as she is today) so she took pictures of us and is posting-so I guess there is good that comes out of mom being sick!)
Winton is sleeping more again. Mom is still giving him his blood pressure medication and his chinese herbs but the fluids are becoming harder to administer. Mom said something about his skin feeling "leathery" which is making it hard to get the fluid needle into his skin. He tried to bite mom the other nite, he was crying, and mom was only able to get about 25cc's of fluids in. That's not enough! But mom doesn't want the fluids to hurt him or make him uncomfortable! The entire reason for giving him fluids is so he feels comfortable. She's going to try again today! But if he fights and it hurts him.....mom is going to have to re-think the fluid thing.
Kodak is much better now that he's on insulin twice a day. He's not running for water-he waits for mom to give him his insulin in the morning and at night!
I, Perf, am fine-that silly girl, Blossom, is always racing up behind me and pouncing on me! I guess she thinks it's easier to pounce on me and the dog than on Kodak and Winton. Mom still laughs at her because she races around the house-she has her own circuit training course!
