Before I forget, a huge thank you to KC for the purr for Leo badge! That touched my heart so much, thank you!!
To answer some questions. Yes, he is on a pain reliever. He is on an antibiotic even though the vet said it was unlikely to be bacterial, but being on the safe side.
I think it's the effect of the meds, or maybe the not feeling good, but Leo's been sleeping most of the day, and has been very clingy. I have to say that I enjoy holding my baby and cuddling him, I just wish he felt better! So I've spent half my day cuddling him and the other half reading and trying to make sense of things. I might be on brain overload... but we're determined to get our boy healthy!
It took me exactly two doses of meds to figure out that trying to force Leo's jaws open for the liquid was not going to work! So since the vet said to pour out the capsule into a bit of soft food, we went ahead and put the liquid in it too. It took him a few moments to decide if he was going to eat it, but since we picked his new favorite (chicken with cheese) he ate it all up and licked the bowl! Whew!
Star has pretty much left him alone, except for a little hissing. But every time Greg comes into the room, she hides. We couldn't figure it out.. But now I think she thinks he might grab her next and try to shove some med down her throat or stuff her in the carrier! Poor girl, I keep telling her she's fine, but she's not buying it just yet.
Again, thank you all for the information and support, it means a lot!
This is where Leo spent the parts of the day when he wasn't laying on my chest
I see you mommy, I'm gonna come back over now that you made eye contact!
Star kept an eye on him from across the room in her bean bag
I knew when they took you away that it was too good to be true.. They just had to bring you back.. And now you smell like that awful place on top of everything else!
