All of us are glad Phil is home, but no one in the house expresses gladness that Phil is home like his German Shepherd Garron! I did an Audioboo I’ll be uploading of Phil and our friend Bonnie (who brought Phil home) walking in the door. I’m sitting in the easy chair with the front door to my right. and along with the classic Garron squeaks, since it’s in stereo , you’ll probably hear Garron running around and then Phil slowly trying to get to the couch on my left. Bonnie, , the dogs, and Phil went out to look at our roses. One bush is blooming beautifully, and the other died. Right after Bonnie walked out the door, Garron started whining in an unusual way given the situation. Then he threw up *all *over! Lesson learned. I will not feed Garron before Phil gets home.
After cleaning up the mess, Phil got his medications labeled. I think he has three extras in addition to the usual ten or fifteen. A couple are antibiotics with some possible side effects and interactions with other medications, but he has the numbers of two doctors including one’s mobile if he gets into a jam this weekend. He’ll go in for labs on Monday.
the final diagnosis — just in case you’re interested — is that in addition to Diverticulitis, he had an unnamed infection which may or may not have been related to an abscess in his intestine. He’s back on a regular diet, although he’s proceeding slowly.
