Henry is HEALTHY! He weighs a whopping 7 pounds 3 ounces and he's still gaining. He runs, he plays, he cuddles, he's spunky, he's off all antibiotics for the first time since March. When my vet last saw him 4 weeks ago, he was barely 5 pounds. When I pulled him out of the carrier today, her eyes bugged out of her head and she couldn't believe it. She was very, very pleased as well as amazed. He's still gaining muscle tone and endurance and I still give him sub-Q fluids about every three days since it's super hot here, but other than that, he's on his regular Reglan and no other meds. My fireman friend has been watching Henry recover with great interest since he suggested that "perhaps" I ought to put him down. He said he's glad he was wrong. I admitted that Henry did look pretty dead at one point and my friend said, "He looked like he'd been dead for three days."
If you open these images in their own window by right clicking, you can enlarge them and see them more clearly. I wish the jpg format made them look like they do on the viewer because it still looks like he's got cloudy lungs, but the doesn't. Not at all.
Today, totally clear lungs!
The x-rays in jpg format do make his lungs still look cloudy, but they are actually totally clear when viewed through regularly.
That long cloudy tube thing running horizontally in his chest is Henry's mega-sized esophagus and the little narrow tube bowing down below it is his trachea.
