I am overjoyed! Ollie came home this afternoon after eight nights and nine days at the vet. I picked up a glucose meter on the way home and will test to make sure he is holding his own. His is digging being here, eating and sleeping, and falling me around, wagging his tail, getting to know Ella. The way he can bend himself is something else. The tail can fold up to his chin. The legs do all sorts of pretzel maneuvers, and it’s a trick to sort them out. He is so expressive. The last nine days have been such a journey. I’ve gotten to know some wonderful people, and a lot of incredible people helped me pay for his care. The outpouring of donations to him has been amazing. I am so touched to think of how many of you cared and took the time to help Ollie. I am so appreciative. I remember the suggestion early on to put him to sleep. I couldn’t ever even imagine that as an option. This same story is playing out all over. There are a lot of people in Sacramento doing great things for animals. I am just so grateful Ollie was one that was saved. Thank you!  MONDAY UPDATE: Ollie’s blood glucose was 80 last night and 88 this morning. So he is holding is own. Everywhere I go in the house, he follows, stepping on the back of my heels.
