henry's caregiver

i'm worn out. it's only been a day of caring for him. i'm worried about the amount of food going in vs. the amount of food coming out. i'm afraid i won't do it right and he will die. i need to calm down.

i know i just have to get used to it. and do the best i can.

i stopped watering down the food so much. so i don't have to give him so much.

i took his little tshirt off, but it made the tube flail around, so the tshirt went back on. tonight we'll take it off and brush him down and wash the shirt.

his incision is crusty (ew) but not infected at all.

he still isn't at all perky, i blame that on the not enough food thing. i don't know when i'm petting him if he likes it. but he always liked me to pet him before he got sick, so maybe he does like it. i fed him while cuddling him this morning. i'll feed him again in 45 minutes.
