Gigi is Feeling Better
For those of you who have been concerned, I have good news, Gigi is feeling much better. She has been sick this past week, first with the croup and then she was diagnosed with pneumonia. Now we have her on medicine, she is doing much better.
Have you ever tried to give medicine to a toddler? Oh my goodness, what an ordeal. I thought it was hard to give medicine to a cat but, that was just the warm up exercise. This past week, Gigi refused to eat everything offered to her and barely drank anything (thank goodness for PediaLite and PediaSure), the thought of allowing us to give her a foreign tasting, gritty medicine was out of the question. Fortunately, we were able to reason with her (you laugh, it's true) and after holding her down she decided to go ahead and swallow the antibiotics. What do you do if they don't? You can't hold her mouth closed and blow on her nose like you do to a cat.
Well she hasn't had a fever all day, which is great. We all got sleep last night, although I kept waking up worrying about her. And today she started eating better and playing normally.
It's nice to get things back to normal.
