Two Patients

Lion started feeling sick yesterday. He crawled in bed and slept most of the day. Every time he thought he was feeling better, he was hit with another wave. By bedtime I came to the conclusion that he was just trying to avoid the spanking bench test. However, I told him I was suspending punishment for not setting up the coffee pot. He said he was going to try to make it to the kitchen. There was no reason. I’m perfectly capable of setting it up and I didn’t want him exerting himself. This morning, he was awake early again. I made breakfast. And he’s been sleeping for about an hour. Clearly he’s still not feeling up to par.

The dog is still not feeling well either. This morning I said I’d give anything for a tail wag. I wish she could tell us what’s going on. She’s been taking her medicine reluctantly . She’s eating less. Between Lion not feeling well, and the dog barely able to manage the one or two steps into and out of the house, I think we’re going to cancel our trip for next weekend. A few weeks ago, I suggested getting a pet-friendly motel instead, but I don’t even think that would work. We’re afraid we’re going to lose her.

Those are a lot of words to say that not much is happening here. No spanking. No punishment. No fun of any sort. If I can convince Lion he should stay in bed and recuperate, maybe things will pick up tomorrow. There’s no rush, but of course I don’t want him to be sick. Either way, I’m happy to take care of him.
