I caved today. I called the doc and asked for some oral antibiotics. I have been feeling run down, short of breath, tired, coughing more, and stuffed up. I've also had a couple night sweats. So I got some levoquin for 14 days. Hopefully this will kill it before it really gets a good hold.
I also bought some miralax. Seems like I only go #2 every other day or so and with the amount of food I eat that's just not enough. So hopefully this will clean out the pipes, so to speak.
Still no sign of the big fat cat. I don't know what to think. I hope that he's ok and just hanging out with someone for now.
