Frailer now

Herbie's been unwell over the weekend. I think it was another respiratory bug, but he didn't eat for 48 hours (apart from one blueberry yoghurt, and he spat out all the blueberries, so his bed had purple spots). The vet had given me some emergency antibiotics, which I used, and he's recovering now, but he goes downhill so quickly, and he's lost weight.

I'm not sure either of us can survive much more of this.

I'm really sorry to hear that Herbie is having a rough time... it is so hard and sad to see your beloved go though all this. There is nothing I can say to make things better, but at least know I am thinking of you guys. Take care.
