so, current update: he looks a lot better today than he did yesterday. he was perky(ish) and looked happy to see us. he kept looking at people, noticing people he knew (like the vet he's seen most often, the tech who loves on him every time he's there, us), and when out for a wee he actually pulled on the leash. he's getting a blood transfusion right now, as this should help a few of the problems he has at the moment.
he's not been given any food yet, and they're waiting to see if the lesions in his mouth and esophagus stop bleeding before they do. there was blood in his drool last night and his chart said he had blood dripping out of his nose this morning.
overall, though, everyone seems positive. i'm just hoping he pulls through. this year can't get any worse than it already is...
I am the sea witch. I am the tide you fear and the turning you can't deny. I am the sound of the waves running over your bones on the beach, little man, and I am not amused at finding you on my doorstep.
