Happy happy joy joy

Sam's bilirubin level is 1/2 of what it was a week ago.  This means his liver is healing.   The level of the bilirubin is important because when his liver is not properly functioning it produces more of the bilirubin.  He also looks less jaundice.  His infection at the tube site looks much better as well. 

He hissed at sylvester today and raised a paw at him, kitty showdown avoided.   Hopefully soon he will start eating on his own again so we can think about removing the tube.  He did come to the kitchen when I shook the bag of food, so he was thinking about eating. 

Yeaaaa, for improvements.  All my hard work is paying off, it feels good.
