It looks like the swelling on Little Mer’s chin is coming back again. He’s been off of antibiotics for about a week and we were really hopeful that the antibiotics kicked out the infection. He’s too weak for any kind of anesthesia or surgery, so we were really hoping that the antibiotics would work.
A few minutes ago, Chun, crazy kitten that he is, knocked a bunch of books off a shelf onto Ping and Merlin. The shelf was behind their chair. I think most of it fell on Ping, who has ample padding, but it startled Merlin, and Merlin fell when he jumped onto the floor. He gets a little wobbly now and then, even though he’s still active and jumps onto the coffee table and the chairs – though my bed is too high for him now. It’s really hard seeing him so frail but he doesn’t seem to notice. When he falls down, he picks himself right back up. When someone pushes him out of the way for an extra bite of breakfast, he butts his head right back into the dish. Nothing can keep him from a yummy snack.
Anyways, we’ll talk to the vet again tomorrow. I’m hoping they have some good ideas.
