Max isn’t feeling well. Yesterday morning he wouldn’t eat. He turned his head away from food, and that’s not normal. Nothing tempted him. He went out to pee and just wanted to lay in the leaves. That’s not normal, either. He seemed weak in his rear and just so tired. I finally got him to eat some food, I had some cheese and that peaked his interest, so then I gave him some of his food and he gobbled it down.
I spent last night on the sofa, and in the recliner, so I could make sure he was breathing. He was so weak and tired all day and all evening, I’ve been scared this is really bad.
This morning I gave him some food, which he gobbled again. So I gave him a little more, and he gulped that down too. I gave him his pain pill and his anti-inflammatory and then we both took a nap. When we woke up, I gave him a little more food and water, he drank a lot, but he still hasn’t peed today! This is gonna be a river when he finally goes!
We’re headed to the vet at 5:15. We decided not to get him up till it was time to go, but about 1/2 hour ago, he got up by himself and walked into the family room. I guess he wanted to watch TV. 🙂 So I’m still really scared but thinking maybe it won’t be as bad as I thought.
I have no appetite at all. I keep telling myself to eat, but nothing tempts me. I had a stick of cheese, shared that with Max. Maybe when we get back from the vet, I’ll feel like eating something. Or not. He owns my heart and I’m scared it’s about to shatter into a million pieces and even my Bear won’t be able to put them back together this time.
