How I Spent Crafting Vacation - DAY ONE

Yep, back at the vet.  Although, for a fun twist, I had a dentist appointment this morning to just round out the fun.  My poor little sidekick,
started sneezing Sunday morning, and I kept an eye on him for a couple days because he does have asthma, the house hadn't been vacuumed in a week, and the sneezing wasn't accompanied by any other symptoms.  But by last night he was really uncomfortable--very clogged up and not able to smell food so wasn't eating very much.  He was so clogged up that I got out Vicks Vaporizer that we've used when I've had bronchitis to help him get a bit of relief. 

I actually felt sorry for our vet's office when we walked in, because frankly, all of us had been feeling just a little bit smug about Theo being able to pee while he was boarded.  The vets had checked on him a couple times, everything seemed good, and everyone was pretty happy.  But apparently pride goeth before a respiratory infection.......

They're a good group and didn't charge me for the visit in case he did pick it up there, but respiratory infections are pretty rare in cats, so it could also be stress.  The drugs will fix the infection if it is one, but not exactly help the stress--for either of us.  So......
At least this will help one of us.......................
Poor little guy.........
