He is getting thinner by the day. He seems worse than ever after two weeks on this medication trial (which is supposed to last a month) and I'm afraid he really may not even make it as long as is needed for any other medication experiments. I decided tonight to stop giving him the current medication since he actually seems worse than before.
My heart is breaking. I am just grateful he has a roof over his head, lives with loving creatures and his constant companion, little Gadjo, who is following him around and literally doesn't let a moment go by without curling around Rumi, licking him, and keeping him warm. How either one of us, Gadjo or I, will manage without Rumi, I don't know.
I am sorry to post this, since it's so sad. I know that reading my blog this last year or so is like tuning in periodically on a slow, tragic train wreck. But again, please use this news as a prompt to give your beautiful furry friends an extra hug and kiss today. I know I will.
