We went to see him yesterday afternoon — oh, what a difference an IV makes. He looked SOOOO different from just hours before. Plus, he was getting good pain meds, so he felt well enough to yell at us (hooray!) but his voice sounded funny. Like if a stoner gets mad at you, "Heyyy!…Huh? What?" He was hydrated again, and he had been eating, and they took his e-collar off and removed his stitches, so he was grooming himself.
I think that’s a great sign, meself. I’ll visit him later today and tell him you all are still rooting for him…..
*Just heard from the doc — Digit’s doing even better now, still eating, and they’re going to do the big surgery tomorrow. Yay! Scary, but yay!
Today I’m not feeling so well myself, sore throat is back, called in sick for a training day, and I think I’m just going to sit on the couch and drink tea. One of the first symptoms of the tonsillitis (which I’m going to beat, btw — I’m supposed to have my tonsils out again in two weeks, but I’m really trying to fix myself holistically so I can avoid it) is exhaustion, which is weird, since it’s just my throat. But I will heed this and go lie down some more. Me and Digit, beating the crud. Yep.
And kittens help.
