He seems to have mostly recovered. The bloodwork indicated 2 things, though: an infection, which we are treating, and very early signs of kidney disease. So, now boyo gets special canned food in addition to dry. Hopefully, that will also reverse the weight loss I had been noticing - he's down to 13.3 pounds, which is kind of skinny for him.

He has his play instinct still, which is very good. Less good is the fact that he is very cautious about jumping now - his balance isn't all that great, and he's very tentative even when he's changing surfaces. I don't know if it's a residual effect from his 'sode, or a symptom of something larger. I'm keeping an eye on that, and if it doesn't improve by the time his anti-b's are done, I'll see what the vet can do. If anything, really.

M and I are both super-solicitous of him now, to the point of arranging ourselves on the bed when we get in so he's not disturbed. It's a little ridiculous, but. We're both worried about him having another episode, so we'll continue to err on the side of indulgence.

Thanks for your good thoughts, y'all. They help.
