It's been a l-o-o-o-n-g week for Sherman. The new medicine must be helping because he seems to be making slow progress in the last 48 hours. He looks a bit more alert, although he's still sleeping 23 hrs. a day. See, this was a couple days ago...when he could barely lift his head and was tripping over his own paws. Looks kind of ragged, huh?
and now he looks more like he should...for about 10 minutes at a time. At least most of the awful coughing & hacking is over (paws crossed)
A big problem now is his lack of appetite. He's gotten pretty weak because he won't hardly eat anything. Forget the kibble, Hu-mom! He ain't touching it. Hu-mom's cooking all kinds of tasty human food, and I know he's still sick because he's refusing to eat most of it.
I said to him "My Dog, Sherman, you're refusing ground beef??? eggs??? turkey lunchmeat??? cheese????" and he says "No thank you. You eat it." So I'm eating pretty good right now.
He does eat peanut butter and a little chicken when Hu-mom feeds it to him bite by bite.
I think she's getting pretty tired of sleeping next to us, on the couch, and will be less grumpy when she stops worrying about him every night. *edit: "not that she's all that grumpy"....(is that OK now, mom?)
The vet's are going to look inside him again in a week to see if the new-monia has gone away. I hope he doesn't get any more monias. They don't seem like much fun.
Sherman wants me to type a thank you for all your words of sympathy & encouragement. Knowing huskies everywhere are pulling for him makes him feel better. After all, pulling is what huskies do best!
