No Renn Faire Today

We got up, did our morning routine and were all dressed up for the Renaissance Faire. But, Alex was clearly not feeling well. He did not eat breakfast (although he seldom does). He needed out a lot and had some diarrhea. He was clearly in pain, moaning occasionally and shaking/shivering. So, we got dressed back in 21st century clothing and took him to the local vet. 

He is suffering from GI distress and just can't get relief. He is cramping frequently and moans in pain when he does. We gave him fluids and put him on some pain meds, but there is little else we can do until this passes. 

But, it is hard watching him in such distress and pain. Frustrating. This is probably the sickest he has been in his (almost) 11-year life.

We bobbed in the pool some, but will save swimming for later. Kind of a bummer of a day.
