Today, I am thankful for T's rapid recovery from a throat/salivary gland infection.
For the past week, T has drooled excessively and rarely displayed his signature high energy behavior (i.e., he's been sleeping most of the time). We thought that the significant change in weather - from hot to cool - affected him more than in past years.
But, after, S felt a soft lump near T's throat, we decided that a trip to the "veg" (a.k.a. "the veterinarian") was necessary. After determining that T probably has an infected salivary gland, the veg prescribed antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs.
T thinks the pills are treats and swallows them without protest. And, after just a few rounds of medication, he is nearly back to normal. High fives all around!
For this blessing, I am grateful.
