Roo has slept since he got home. I've spent most of the day sitting with him. He is not at all his normal self. He is very lethargic. He did eat for me, which is a good thing. If he still isn't well tomorrow I will put him on IV fluids during the day at work with me and bring him home at night. I feel that this is a "bandaid" to keep him going until my husband is home to say goodbye. There is something desperately wrong with his kidneys.

Jackie, it seems I remember your DH is in military service? What time frame are you expecting his return? I am so sorry for what you are all going through! My heart goes out to all of you! Oh my.

Jackie I'm so sorry Roo is in trouble. I'm praying for the sweet boy and for you. I'm happy for you that you can keep him with you day and night and treat him too. What a blessing. Dam those kidneys.

Jackie i'm so sorry to hear that Roo Bear isn't doing well. I'm glad that you can be with him day and night and also give him fluids, he's very lucky to have you for his mommy. My heart is just breaking for you. Hugs and prayers to you and Roo Bear.

Jackie, I am so happy that little Roo has the comfort of your presence all day. That's probably what he wants most at this point. and God bless all of you .

Jackie, my heart is breaking for you. Thank God that Roo is able to be with you and that it is you caring for him with the IV's, etc. Even though he is not well ... it has got to be a comfort to Roo knowing that his Mommy is there with him.

I am so sorry and feel so sad for all of you. I wish a miracle would happen for Roo.

Jackie, just read about Boo - I'm so sorry he's not well. The pain for me is still so fresh; I can only imagine how you are feeling now. My heart goes out to you. You were so supportive to me when I lost Gimme; I wish I could do something for you. All I can offer are prayers.
Lots of love,
