I'm still around... just busy as hades.
Grimmy is doing well. He has good days and bad ones. Yesterday was a good one... a really good one. He pranced around the house. He stared at the empty food bowl in an attempt to guilt us into feeding him MORE than we should. He wagged his tail when I just glanced in his direction.
He can't get up on the couch by himself anymore. He was staring a hole thru J-man last night so Carl picked him up and put him on the couch next to his buddy. The picture says it all. Those two are best buds and Grimmy adores J-man. This snuggle pose is one we used to see almost every night with Grimmy grinding his face in J-man's stomach/chest doing his little "nahhh naaah naaaah" sound. I think this is the one thing we will miss the most. Grimmy's affection. J-man is handling it well... he just lets Grimmy do whatever he wants.
(Sorry the quality of the pic is so bad. iPhones and low light do not make a good match, but we didn't want to disturb them.)
We are just taking it a day at a time. He goes back to the vet on Saturday for another check up. Then we start another week. We tend to forget at times just how sick he is...
Thank you all for your thoughts, messages, emails and prayers. It is so nice to know there are other folks out there thinking of you.
