Marshall is doing well during this latest waiting game and has kept a good frame of mind. I've added a tranquilizer to his daily drug cocktails and that has been helpful.
Marlee (the sheltie) is sleeping most of the time these days. He has lots of old-age health problems (thyroid, severe arthritis, benign limpoma, deaf) but is doing good, all things considered. He is on several daily medications.
Coco (the dachshund) has been sick since Sunday, coughing and having trouble breathing, very lethargic. We went to the vet today and x-rays were taken. The consensus was that he has acute allergic bronchitis that has gone into pneumonia. So he is on antibiotics and on another drug to open his airways. This evening he seems to be resting nicely and the coughing has subsided.
And Okie (the cat) has feline herpes that requires daily medication.
I am the only one in the household that is not on any medications. And I am always worried that I will give the wrong drugs to the wrong "boy." It's like a pharmacy here!
We don't have to go anywhere for the next two weeks and we look forward to the down time.
