The topic: And on a happier note (laughing)


Last night I remembered I had a timer/stopwatch app on my tablet. 

I set it for a minute and counted Cappy's breaths. Works nicely and a whole lot easier than taking video, downloading the video, editing the video, then counting. 

Of course, the beep when the timer's done is pretty loud, but I think after we've heard it about a thousand times (I think that will be in about eighteen hours - remember, I've got this weird compulsion thing), it won't be such a shock.

This is his fourth day on Rutin and he's not getting any worse. 

His breathing rate is between 35 and 43 breaths per minute. The first recording I have of it, the first time I counted was last Friday morning. It was 39. So, he's holding steady.

And it seems to me that he's breathing more deeply, but that could just be wishful thinking on my part (another thing I'm good at).

I sure hope he can beat this thing.
