Health Update

Diego-san had a followup vet appointment. It didn't go as well as expected. Part of his wound is still open so they put him on an antibiotic again. Meanwhile, Thompson took a nasty spill trying to jump up to the faucet for a drink. He doesn't appear to be in any pain but he's not moving much at all.  Hopefully both return to good health soon...

Saturday, October 10, 2015


Went to see Madonna Thursday night.  She knows how to put on a show.  It was the second time I've seen her and as last time, I note that she does more laying on the stage and writhing than Bob Dylan (the artist I've seen the most times). At 57 she's in remarkable shape and is still a very athletic dancer. The crowd made me feel young(ish) too because unlike the crowds to most shows I go to these days, many appeared to be older than me. On the other hand, I didn't get to bed until 1:00 a.m. so I may have not been my most effective Friday at work.  I guess I am old.

Theo is starting to look at his cone head brother with a look of envy.  I told him I could probably find a cone for him to wear as well.

He'll Find a Way Around Everything

So yesterday when I got home I saw Diego-san licking his wound area.  I'm not entirely sure if the cone was preventing him from actually getting to the wound but if it was not it begs the question, why I'm making him wear the darn thing...

Different Degrees of Normal

No one in the house is hoping things return to 'normal' more than I am. Diego-san's has a follow up vet appointment on Friday and hopefully things will settle down afterward. He still is required to wear the cone when I'm not around, and still is taking a pill twice a day. With the cone on, he apparently loses a lot of motor function as he bangs into various objects. He's very skilled at hiding the pill in his mouth and then spitting it out when I'm not looking. Thompson meanwhile still is hissing at everyone and everything in sight.  And he still isn't eating much at all. I'm trying to find the time to spend with each of the boyz and am trying to make the routine as regular as possible.

Therefore, I'm very thankful for Theo. He may not be acting normal but that's normal for him.  In other words he's back to his usual goofy self.
