folks left

well, my folks left this afternoon... it was a nice visit, as usual...

when the vet said that we could expect a decline in clyde's health by christmas, i thought she was crazy... christmas was just a month away...... well.. she was right... in the past few days alone clyde's health has dipped...... he's just worn out... he keeps breathing real hard and fast... he's so tired acting, he just lays on the couch all the time, he doesn't want to go out on walks (so, we don't walk him, there's no need to, we just go outside and walk around the front of the building... when he's had enough, he just stops, then we go inside)... last night and this morning he wasn't too enthused about eating his meals... i put his dinner down for him last night and he just looked at me... he didn't care much about eating it, but then he did... he ate all of it, but slowly.... and he would take little 5 second breaks while eating... the this morning when i gave him his morning treats... he usually snatches them up as soon as i put them down... not waiting for me to give him all his treats... but today... i put down the 4 meaty bones, and he just looked at me, then i gave him his 2 jerky treats, and he still just looked at me... he finally grabbed one and took it into the living room (he always takes his treats from the kitchen into the living room)... then i went up to the bathroom and when i came down, he still wasn't finished, meaning he was eating pretty slow... when i came down he was on his 2nd to last bone... i watched him go into the kitchen to get it and bring it out to the living room... he set it down on the carpet and sat down... he needed to take a break before he could start eating it................ he's losing energy.... he can't even eat without having to take a break..... my mom said that sometime this week i really may have to take him to the vet to....... do something... in just 5 days he's declined so much... i can't imagine how he'll be in another 5 days........ when my folks arrived here they couldn't see anything wrong with him... and now less than a week later... he's so... worn out...... i know he's not feeling well... his breathing is so fast....... about every 2 minutes i have to look at him to make sure he's still with us... when i'm in bed, i have to reach out and touch him to make sure he's still breathing..... it's awful...... my poor baby..... i really don't see him being here for christmas... one way or another, he won't be here...... i can't imagine it... even if i don't take him to the vet.......... we've got an appointment on monday afternoon, anyway, that i made on wednesday... she just wants to check up on him... i'll ask her a few questions then........ i just don't want clyde to suffer any...... and i know he's not happy right now.... i just... need to help him before things get horrible.......

well, anyway.......... 2 days of classes left... then exams... ugh... i'm so not ready yet... i've still got 2 books to finish and 2 papers to write... then all that studying...... there's too much going on... ugh... lordy, i hope i graduate at the end of this semester.............
