Pie Doing Better

Every day, Pie seems to be doing a bit better.  Thursday, after his first dose of antibiotics Wednesday night, he was still pretty uncomfortable about 45 minutes after evening feeding time, lying down for a while, and even flat, but not with the severe (and heart-rending) groaning that had happened on Monday and Wednesday.  He perked back up pretty quickly after feeling bad for a bit.  And then Friday and Saturday, he didn't lie down but stood in the back of his stall for a bit looking uncomfortable.  And tonight, Sunday, he looked pretty good throughout and he also seems less crabby.  I think the antibiotics are beginning to work, and we'll do a blood draw sometime next week to check that his elevated liver enzymes are starting to come back down.  Keeping fingers crossed . . .

  5. I've got my fingers crossed. And I'm curious to see if you are able to get to the bottom of this strange and painful thing.
