I haven't been keeping up with this, and it bothers me. Things have been tough for the last few months: I had walking pneumonia, then my dog had emergency surgery while I was out of town. His back is healing nicely, but he is not eating, so he isn't recovering. He's lost more than 10% of his total weight in three weeks, which is extremely dangerous. He's going back in on Friday to have a gastroscopy tube put in; I'll have to use a syringe to shoot food directly into his stomach. Hopefully this will get him back on track. I haven't slept more than 2 hours a night in almost 2 weeks, and I'm worried that I'm going to end up sick again - then how will I take care of him? So it's been a bad few months.
