Many thanks to everyone who sent prayers, good thoughts and well wishes to Parker. He seems to be doing much better. We have almost completely weaned him off of the appetite stimulant and he is taking his weekly injections like a pro. Parker seems comfortable and happy, and, while not completely his old self, he is definitely making strides in that direction. We head back to the veterinarian in another couple of weeks and we expect a good progress report at that time.
