Gio Update - Wednesday

He's coming home tomorrow!!!

I can't even believe it. It was really scary there for a few days, and I nearly had myself convinced that Gio wouldn't be coming home again. But he's pulled through and toughed it out. Thanks, I'm sure, in part to all the amazing support that we have received from all of you! Thank you endlessly!

I was able to have a quick chat with the vet today. She said she is really happy with how he is doing and is confident that he will be able to come home tomorrow evening. He's off his IV fluids now and has been transferred out of ICU. They have cut out most of the drugs, and the ones he is getting still are being given orally. He's eating and keeping it all down, and really looking amazing!

He will have to be on a modified diet for quite a long time now, and go back for frequent blood work to monitor how thing are going. He is definitely not healed or completely back to normal by any stretch of the imagination. And he will be prone to relapses for a good long time, if not the rest of his life.

But none of that matters as long as he is home where he belongs!
