Hi All

I just wanted to let everyone know that Hank is doing very well after his hospital stay for congestive heart failure and digoxin toxicity.  We were pretty worried (sleepless nights worried) about him but he's doing awesome!  Last night he went bounding through the yard after a soccer ball...ran around with the ball for a few minutes...played with the others!  I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry, be happy or scared....but I laughed (with a few tears) and was happy.   

I didn't want to post a status update until we had a few weeks under our belt and he had a chance to adjust fully to his new med schedule and feeding routine.  His med schedule requires that I mark the time and dosage for each pill (he's getting about 6 a day).  Fortunately, we already have a pet sitter so we have someone available to give him his afternoon meds.

I was hoping to have pictures, but unfortunately, our camera broke and I need to get a new one.  So, I'll post pics as soon as possible. 

Thank you all for your kind thoughts when I initally posted re: Hank's status.  I truly appreciate the kind words.
