our new sweet bag of bones

we welcome laddy.
he is a skinny, weak and sick sweet old thing so off he went into the vets today..diagnosis...renal disease and pancreatitis. he should have stayed in the clinic hooked up to his iv but he pitched a big baby fit. so he is back home and i am now monitoring his iv. it wasn't too bad while he was sleeping but now he is awake i have had to de-tangle him at least a dozen times so far. we are only a few hours into this and have 3 days and 5 and a half iv bags to go.
humans and iv's are way easier. guess i am sleeping in the computer room for the next few nights.

re-hydrating him may or may not work to buy him a bit more quality time. he has been vomiting and has diarrhea so he won't eat and feels crappy. hopefully the fluids and meds will work, we will see.
in the meantime, i am stuck to watching him and his iv.
i am the watcher, he is the watchee.

welcome laddie
