Home Again

July 14th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Apollo came home from the hospital this morning, after a 6-day stay. He is much better; lively, curious and hungry.

He has to go on a ultra-low fat diet for the rest of his life to help prevent a recurrence, and for the next few days he will be on 5-6 medications (pain, appetite stimulant, antiemetic, antibiotic and a couple others.

He looks a little funny — his abdomen was shaved for the ultrasound, and each of his 4 “wrists” is shaved where they had IVs inserted.

It’s good to have him home.

    I’m so glad he is okay. I’m sure it was a scary time for you all, but especially for Derek. Hope this is the end of Apollo’s visits to the vet (except for immunizations).

    Yay! Hooray! Glad he’s home and feeling better.
