A hint of mischief ?

Another restless night, but not as troubled as Friday and Saturday. His eyes and gums are very yellow from the jaundice, he's finding it painful to move but his temperature is now set below 40. At the risk of tempting fate it looks as though the cortisone is kicking in. This morning he's had some tiny slivers of roast chicken and liver and he is sitting at the front door on a plumped up pillow keeping an eye on Wilf. There is a hint of mischief in his attitude.

Thank you again for all your comments of support and advice - they have certainly cheered us up. For the first time in four days we are looking on the bright side.

Off to the vets for a check up and a hydration drip as some of you suggested. Will post later.


  1. Paws and fingers crossed. Eating is a good sign, huh?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  2. Oh Angus. Once again, I couldn't sleep from worry, and have padded down the hall to turn on the computer and check on the boy. This is so hopeful. I will head back to bed now with another prayer on my lips.

  3. Oh - oh! Digby - we DO so hope you're on the homeward stretch with this - we're keeping all our paws crossed for you. Hang in there buddy - everyone out here is rooting for you. Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  4. Dear Angus, the Font, Wilf and dear Digby!
    That news is indeed hopeful! Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be sent your way as well as all our love, strength and uplifting wishes. We really do care and you are surrounded with an all-embracing cyber-hug! Thank you for keeping us all posted amidst all this. A huge part of the blogosphere is emotionally with you in your battle!
    Lots of hugs to both of the boyz.

  5. We are so glad, so very glad..:) :) :))

  6. There is a circle of ♥s and paws surrounding you from all over this great earth of ours. Word gets out when one of our own needs us and it doesn't take long for prayers, purrs and howls go forth into the Universe in Digby's name. Miracles can and DO happen. Just look at our dear friend Maxdog. Never say never and never say quit!

  7. He does look a little more lively, so we will keep our paws crossed for him.

  13. We came sniffing over from Max's blog, and have done some backtracking here to catch up with what has been happening. It is so hard when rough times come like this, but there is always hope and prayers, and we are adding ours to the mix. You have a lot of people that care holding you up and praying for the best for all of you.

    It is so good to hear that there is a bit of good news in this last post. We all have our paws crossed here in Corgi Country, for Digby and the rest of you that love him so much, and like we mentioned, Grammy is praying...

  14. As the past few mornings, the first thing we do is to check and see how your Digby the brave is doing.
