Just Like a Yo-Yo.

So here it goes. Elliott went to vet today after eating and drinking well for me. He didn't eat or drink all morning at the vet, so they called me in the early afternoon and asked my permission to put in the feeding tube they put off on Monday. I approved. I picked Elliott up at 7 PM, very drowsy-like, and the doctor showed me how to feed, hydrate, and give meds, all via a feeding tube in Elliott's neck. His little paw is shaved from where the IV was (and very swollen). His neck is widely wrapped to keep the feeding tube in place. He sorta looks like a giraffe. Now we're home, and I get to feed him at 9:30, 11:30, 4:30 and 6:30 before taking him back to the vet in the morning for monitoring.

So... how was your day?

Seen here: rare breed giraffe-cat. Approach cautiously.
