Yesterday, his first day after chemo, Romeo seemed to be feeling pretty ok. His appetite was good and his energy level was normal (which for him is mellow).

Mellow and content

As the day went on he started making more visits to the back yard as the lovely side effect of diarrhea caught up with him. He still ate all of his dinner last night, with just a little less enthusiasm than normal.

Then last night he woke up twice to go outside.

First thing this morning he turned down his breakfast and has continued to be uninterested in his kibble, even after getting his antinausea meds.

Today he is working his way up the pathetic meter.

Next he is starting on Metronidazole, an antibiotic to help his innards get back on track. Also on Romeo’s agenda for today, chicken and rice. I guess that means I have to cook.
