it occured to me that doc may not trust me alone with henry. so i had him watch me this morning and how i handled medicine giving and feeding and such. put his mind at rest that his boy is getting the best care possible. and i so want to be trusted with this. because i am more than capable, i have learned. the hell of the first day has worn off, like i knew it would, and things have settled into a routine.

and i'm learning a lot about henry. even though he is sleepy cat most of the time right now, when he wakes up fully, his personality is still there to shine through.

and with this new medication treatment, i'm feeling much more positive than i was last night, even before i started freaking out about henry's state of exhaustion.

i've been giving him more fluids, since the vet said henry was dehydrated still. he drinks water, just not enough. so when i'm feeding him, i give him a little boost of water. above and beyond flushing out the tube before and after. i also give him some by mouth, by letting him chew on the tip of the mega syringe we water him with and squirt it slowly into his mouth and he takes it.

he's also reacting well to the nutri cal. which i think will do some good and the vet said it coudln't hurt if we really wanted to give it to him.

so things are looking much more up again, like i was hoping they would yesterday. there is always hope. i'm falling in love with hope.
