Jack has liver disease and pancreatitis and maybe gall bladder stuff; the name for this is apparently triad disease/syndrome. We've ruled out diabetes and thyroid. He may need to be ultrasounded to see if he has any growths or blockages. For today, though, he'll be getting antibiotics and pain meds, and the vet will be teaching us to give him fluids. Yay needles.
Vet: "Are you comfortable giving him fluids?"
Me: "Well, I'll get comfortable."
Because the alternative is to spend a shit-ton of money hauling him to the vet daily. So yeah, I'll learn to give the injections.
I'm still not certain how much he's going to cost, so I'm holding off on launching the auction until I have some idea. Don't want to take more money than we need!
Yes, the house concert tomorrow night is totally still on! Jack loves house concerts. If he wanders over to you during it, give him a little love. I've locked the invite on Facebook down to friends-only so I can post our new address. Please RSVP! If you want to bring a snack food, you can, but you don't have to. Again, suggested donation is $15-$20, and this will be the only place you'll be able to get Becca's new album until September!
