Less meds

For the past two days, Kaesea's appetite has been slowly decreasing again. I talked to his doctor today and she suggested that we pare down his medications for a day or two and see how he responds. He will stay on the chemo drug + Prednisone, as well as Pepcid (yup, the same kind people take), but we will remove:

- 1 shot for nausea (boy do I hate giving the cat a shot)
- 1 shot for vomiting
- 1 pill for motility (keeping things moving)
- 1 pill for inappetence (the Prednisone should serve that purpose now)

At least for a day or two.

The thought is that he has now been on the cancer drugs for a week, so hopefully those should be working some magic and the rest of these are unnecessary. I hope that's true, but am still nervous about the return of the Big Vomit.

Oh, well. If he pukes, we'll deal with it. In the meantime, Kaesea and I are both happier to not have to be dealing with so many drugs.
