Blood's all more or less normal so the next step is other tests, such as x-rays. We'll wait for a day or so and see how he goes as the vet can't really find anything to suggest we need to worry.
Today George seems a little brighter and ate some yoghurt for breakfast. This evening I bought some chicken and gave him chicken and rice for dinner and he cleared his dish so hopefully that will have woken up his taste buds and made him feel like eating again. As long as he doesn't get used to living like a king ...
Meanwhile Uncle has decided he wants to go into a care home (at least for respite) and he wants to go NOW. The fact that there's only one home with vacancies so not a lot of choice hasn't deterred him. The fact that his friend is coming down to stay with him for a week from Thursday hasn't put him off. He has made up his mind and he wants to go NOW. Or better still yesterday.
We took him to look around the home this afternoon. Afterwards he asked me what I thought.
'Um...' Very long pause as I tried to think of a polite way to say, 'horrendous.' I ended up with, 'Okay.'
It wasn't the home particularly although it's an old building and not really designed for easy wheelchair manoeuvrability; it was the residents sitting in the lounges staring into space.
I'm sure some of them have all their wits about them but you can't help feeling the environment isn't suited to some temperaments. And I fear Uncle will hate it. I hope I'm wrong and he'll get a new lease of life.
