First subcutaneous fluids administered at home...

Webster did not even have to wake up, much less go anywhere. We just hung the bag on the door that he was sleeping by and he barely noticed. It still hurt us to have to stick him (we both hate needles), but the peace of mind that comes from knowing that he is getting regular fluids outweighs the hurt. Webster is now wearing an Igor-sized hump on his shoulder that will, hopefully, keep him hydrated for the next 8 hours. We are hoping for good regenerative and healing sleep for him, and any sleep possible for us.
