Love your videos of Andy at Christmas dinner. Reminded me so much of Daisy as she used to do exactly that, just casually sit wherever the food was with her big brown eyes fixated lol.
Thanks, Hollie Ya, big brown eyes can turn someone to mush in a hurry LOL

Thanks, Doug Andy's reaction to anything and everything is "whatever is going on is cool with me". He's been the perfectly well behaved boy from Day 1 we adopted him at 1 or 2 years old nearly 10 years ago.

It's like the Rat Pack would say in 1950's Vegas: "there's a lot of love in the room". We're all pretty happy campers around here. Especially them since I roasted a chicken for everyone to share at dinner tonight

No. His ankle is pretty warm to the touch again. Either inflammation or an infection is back. Nothing I can do about it now. Both vets are gone until Wednesday.

So sorry! Is he eating and drinking normally? Does Andy seem to be in pain?

He is eating and drinking normally. I'd imagine he's in some pain in that leg/ankle.

I spoke with a tech (and friend) of Andy's regular vet. She's going to leave a different antibiotic I can pick up, a different one than the 20 day series Andy did until last week that seemed to have cleared up the infection. if it's an infection, the goal is to nip it in the bud this time before it spreads again to his leg from his ankle. It could just be inflammation, but better safe than sorry if it is an infection that didn't quite clear all the way with the last antibiotic. Fingers crossed.

Andy's oncologist forgot to call in a refill for Tramadol (pain relief) after last Thursday's visit and it ran out. So, he doesn't have pain relief in his system right now. Getting to the root cause of what's ailing his ankle is key, IMO. Dr. Vancil is starting him on Gabapentin, an anti-seizure med that blocks pain. Andy's arthritis can be treated. I suspect we'll be back on track in no time.
