Baxter is home!

I picked up Baxter from the emergency vet clinic this afternoon. The technician went over all the discharge instructions with me which was home nebulization, coupage, and oral medications. The biggest hurdle is in helping him stand up. I didn't think it would be all that hard. But damn, even though he has lost weight, "dead" weight can feel like a ton of bricks. So I'm hoping he can recover enough to at least go potty without too much assistance. I'm lucky this house has a ramp, but it is difficult carrying him back and forth. I guess I'll get a good arm workout this week.

Seriously though, I am glad to have him back, but I still worry a lot, just as any mother would. I hope none of you ever have to watch seizures. Seeing them and knowing you can't do anything tugs at your heartstrings. This goes both for humans and our fur friends alike.

On one positive note, my washer is fixed so the hoses do not drain. This could not have come at a better time.
