Tucker Tuesday: Sometimes When We Chux

IMG_5716

For several weeks after returning home after being hospitalized for aspiration pneumonia, Tucker was suffering from a moderate level of diarrhea, then a general loss of, um, sphincter control. For now, protective pads have become ubiquitous everywhere he likes to lie down for a while. Dennis appears to think that these pads are intended for mat work.

Tucker continues to improve and his appetite has largely returned, although he still has some fluid in his lungs. (We’ve been performing “coupage” therapy for him to help him bring it up. There will be video!) He had a recheck yesterday that went well, with no further X-Rays ordered. Thank you to everyone for all the purrs, tail wags, and good wishes for the little old man!

Tucker Tuesday: TV Time

"Doctor Who, AGAIN?"
Doctor Who AGAIN?”

Tucker continues to recover from his aspiration pneumonia. His energy level remains very low but is slowly increasing. He still had some fluid in his lungs at his last checkup, but the vet decided follow-up X-rays were not needed yet. He will be on Baytril for most likely at least another month. Tucker would like to thank everyone for all the well-wishes, purrs, and tail wags!
