No News....


Is good news, right? Nothing interesting to report today. Travis is alert, active, and eating his Mama's cooking with gusto. I let him lope around with his bumper this morning. Just a little exercise to keep the blood pumping, the body useful, and his mind happy. He's still drinking a lot of water, but that might be due to the Prednisone not being out of his system yet. He also wet the bed last night, but then he spent the night before and most of all day receiving fluids, so I'm thinking that is not something to be worried about unless it continues. I have some pee pads made for people with incontinence issues. It is a washable 3 X 3 foot pad that protects the bedding underneath. Travis is not much of a bed fluffer so this worked well last night when he wet his bed.... I just had to wash the pad and not the whole bed (see picture of him lying on the bed, the pee pad is the plaid square on top of the bed).

That photo on the right is one of my favorite pictures of Travis. :)

Glad you guys have had a quiet night and day.

Oh, and did Travis get sloshy in his chest? They once had to give Oreo some subcutaneous fluids when she was dehydrated. The fluid all settled in her chest and she woke me at 1 am, whining because she couldn't figure out how to lie down without discomfort. I finally had to grab her from the side and just tip her over onto a pile of pillows and her bed. She gave a huge sigh and went right to sleep.

Glad to hear Travis is improving.
Does Travis like eating cooked food better, or does it not make a difference?

Kathy, that's my favorite picture too! No sloshy chest on Travis.

Sientay, Travis is a meat and bones boy. He would always choose a chicken back over anything else. Reagan would too. I think the others would eat Mom's mystery oatmeal first.

Absolutely no news in good news! I was told that a lot last year for Mr. Lester and his surgery.
