+ Two more loops at Memorial. Wearing my watch, trying to learn the pace.
- Dean's already running, and faster than he said he would.
- This race could be horribly embarrasing.
+ Saw Sam at the park, Hi Sam.
- Dog sick again.
- Not good.
My poor dog has occupied much of my energy for the last few days. He had been doing well since we went to the vet a couple weeks ago, but on Tuesday, he came down with another rediculously high fever, so it was back to the vet again. They did more blood tests which showed no problems with organ function, so it was unclear where the infection was. This vet thought it was possible there was a tumor, so we also did several x-rays of his abdomen, and they showed nothing obvious.
He's got some different antibiotics now, which are strong enough for blue whales, if in fact, he is infected by blue whales. It's difficult to say if he's improving. He's not interested in eating, and he's very very interested in drinking. He's drank so much, his stomach is distended. I'll talk to the vet in the morning, and see if it's a side effect of the medicine or something.
I've gotten pretty good at getting him to take his pills, I can do it on the first try. Or maybe, he's just realized that the whole ordeal will not end until those pills are in his stomach.
