Rocco's up and down days

Well, Rocco threw up on Friday as well. Then starting in the afternoon he had diarrhea, he also had it 12am 3am 6am 9am and onward like clockwork. We called the vet and they wanted to bring him in to check his white blood cell count. They said if it's low they would give him some antibiotics. I told them just to call in the prescriptions to Kroger. I'm not bringing him down. His white blood cell was low Tuesday and now he is vomiting/diarrhea so why waste the time and money on the test? What are the negatives of giving him antibiotic? His long term resistance is not important because he is terminally ill. Anyway, just a little frustration. We got the prescriptions at Kroger (also a drug for his GI tract). He still had diarrhea the rest of the day but was at least solid this morning if soft. This is a fun blog, lots of poop and vomit in it. Anyway, with the medicine he seems to be feeling better and chewing bone, playing a bit and enjoyed is walk this morning. We'll see if he can do the Chemo on Tuesday.
