I'm still home - but I'm not my old self

I'm home - that is definitely the good news. The bad news is that I am still a bit quiet and not pooping. My doctor says that mommy should not worry about the not pooping but, well you know mommy, she's gonna there's a good chance I'm gonna get some lactulose tonite.

This is me when I got home last night
This morning we went to see the vet - it wasn't so bad they didn't do any poking or proding and I wasn't dehydrated - which probably had something to do with mommy syringing the water down me last night....that mommy just won't give up!!!!

Then we went to Pet Smart to get me some food - all I've had for 10 days is boiled chicken and the vet thinks I need to get back to my kibble....since daddy bought the wrong stuff by accident we had to go get the right stuff - we also go me a new bed....something to do with my "ruining" one of my many beds .... you figure it out.... anyway this time mommy got away from the black and white and I got something colorful.

This is me sniffing it and checking it out....I was feeling pretty good at that time. it's 5:00 and I'm not so perky - Mom is trying to get me to eat - but I'm not having any of it... so I'm chillin in my new bed.

My BAT's will be back next week - hopefully it won't say I've got a lousy liver. We know it's small but we don't think it's lousy....but we'll know more next week. They took a whole bunch more bloodwork - so they're looking for other things too. It's obviously intentestinal since I'm fully of gas......[Tank...we don't need any comments from you on my gaseousness - remember I'm sick so save it for another day buddy!]

The worst part is that I have been so stressed that I haven't prepared anything for my beautiful Suzuki for Valentine's - fortunately Suzi is totally aware of my undying love and she will forgive me.

I need to go because mommy is nudging me to eat something - so I need to go - I really should eat because I need my antibiotic and I can't take it unless I eat - if I don't take it I will never get well......
