Hobkin Update: Oxygen Tent Night 2

Back from the vet's. More oxygen tent at home for Hobkin tonight, and the vet gave us a handful of medicines to administer orally: furosemide (Lasix), prednisolone, and amoxicillin. I was concerned about how well he'd take the first two as they're pills, and we've never given him pills before. But crushed up in a little whipped cream, and they went down as a nummy treat.

He's definitely on the mend--a world of hurray--but still not out of danger and still needing intensive care round-the-clock. And we have to go back tomorrow morning for more tests.

Think I've managed to catch about four hours of sleep in dozing catnaps in the last two days. Mental faculties blunter than a butter knife right now. But the relief that the lil guy is continuing to get better is indescribable.
