I am pleased to say that Charlie is not open mouth breathing any longer! He is still gurgling a bit and still coughing a tiny bit but today he was so active in his room with his new toys it made my heart soar.
Right now my dirty kitchen is calling my name so I need to go. But wanted to write that Charlie is doing pretty darn good. One of the vets who has seen him will be at the house on Saturday to check on him! Apparently, she lives just a few miles down the road from me so she is checking on him at no charge.
