Forgot to mention: the dustbuster bag came out the other day. A total of 6 litres of fluid was drained out of his belly. Now the struggle is to try and prevent it from reaccumulating too much and too quickly.
Bumbled through another day. There were bright spots and dark spots. Auntie Julie is here now and Joey is tucked up all comfy cozy in our new blanket from the Byles family. Thanks guys!
