Hepatic lipidosis - frustrating setbacks

Cleo's had a rough couple of days. Yesterday she only kept down just over a half can of food. She's also been having a really tough time with the fluid injections lately, so I let her take a break from them last night.

Today I got 3/4 a can of food into Cleo. I probably could've tried the remaining 1/4 can, but after the vomiting yesterday and the day before, I decided not to push it. I'll go for a full can tomorrow. She did get her fluid injection tonight, but she fought it quite a bit. I wish she would start drinking again so that I wouldn’t have to keep injecting her with fluids every night.

Because of the reduced amounts of food lately, Cleo has been hiding more again. Also, I think she senses the difference now that the holidays are over — Michael spent a lot of time in the study, where she is, during his vacation. My next few days are going to be busy, but hopefully on the weekend I will be able to spend some more time with Cleo. I think she needs more attention — other than feeding times — than I’ve been giving her recently.
