Friday night, he was feeling to too good, and his meow was still strange and he was still lethargic. Saturday, he was doing things like trying to run down the stairs and then missing the last two stairs and falling over himself (he would normally jump those last two). Once, he tried to jump up on the table and he didn't make it and kind of hit his stomach and fell onto the floor into his water bowl. It was depressing.
The doctors gave him a bunch of medicine, including some appetite enhancing ones (although I discovered on Wednesday that catnip encouraged him to eat a little). I think they worked too well, because now when we give him food he scarfs it down and then throws it back up again. He does keep most of it down, but like I said, some comes up.
He's clearly not totally out of the woods, but is better. I've just had to get him off the counter 4 times while I was cooking dinner, and he is meowing for food in a mostly normal kind of way (aka, annoying). So, that's great news.
Here he is on Saturday, with his little marks on his paws from where the IVs were:
In other news, I DO have my NYC marathon photos, I just have to find the time to upload them. Between work, the cat and trying to get my house ready for Thanksgiving (which I'm hosting), I've been quite busy. Here's a photo of the whole berry cranberry sauce that I canned yesterday:
