I took Nugget in for her checkup this afternoon. A month ago, she had severe pneumonia and she is doing much better! She weighed 650 grams when she first went in. Today she weighed 794 grams.! She had another x-ray and I can definitely see an improvement but she'll be on baytril for a couple more months. They had to give her a sedative to be able to do the x-ray, so she's been a little *spaced-out* tonight. She has the munchies, which is a good thing!

During the first week, I took her to the vet twice a day so the tech could do the fluids and I ended up adopting a kitten who had just had a front leg amputated. This past month has been incredibly busy caring for these two!

That is great news! I hope Nugget continues to improve, and kudos to you for taking in the kitten.
 
Awww, I'm glad your pigger is feeling better, and that's awesome of you for adopting the kitten. Don't forget to take care of yourself as well!
