Trusting my maternal instincts

Last week when I wrote about Big Boy sleeping too much, he was most certainly communicating to me. I didn't know the full extent until Monday when I came home from work and held his limp body in my arms. He was so lethargic and couldn't even jump up or down from the couch. This was trouble.

I called the vet and they advised me to take him to the emergency vet where it is $90 just for them to see him. We would rather spend good money on care, not the evaluation so we decided to try to wait it out til morning. Asher slept with one eye open next to Big on the couch. Moxie slept by my side, keeping me company in the big bed.

In the morning, we took him in and he had a fever and a bacteria infection. He is on antibiotics now and feeling almost complete. Asher say "well, he is back to his annoying ways." Bigs loves to lay on Asher's drawings as witnessed by this pic. Asher loves to complain about him.

And, while Big has lost 3 pounds in the last year, it looks like Mox has gained some. She might not live up to her "Little" nickname much longer. It's hard for us girls.
