Gio Update - Saturday Evening

He's still puking.

It's obvious to me that he is FEELING better, his spirits are higher now and he is much more alert. But still puking a little bit now and then. He is now actively seeking out bum scratches, and leaning with force when you rub his hips. So that is back to normal. Now if only he would quit with the nausea.

The vets weren't in when I went to visit, so I will have to catch them tomorrow for an update to the plan. They mentioned something about plasma treatment in the beginning, but said that it wouldn't really be an option unless things didn't get better. I don't know if he is "better enough" to still not warrant the plasma infusions, or what the deal is. But it just feels so useless sitting back and waiting, not really doing anything other than pumping him full of fluids and pain killers.

Here's hoping your meeting with vets tomorrow go well, and that Gio is way better by tomorrow as well!

Thanks for keeping us posted. Hope Gio will stop vomiting soon and that tomorrow will be a much better day for all of you.

Our hearts go out to you. The hardest thing to do is sit back and wait.

At least you know that he is being well taken care of while you can't be with him. And that to me must be the hard part. To be away from him for so long.

We will keep praying for him.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Staci
