So far so good with Elvis.
He had none of the "hacking up a lung" coughing before his dinner or ours last night. Just some general "normal" coughing that didn't last long and wasn't very prevalent.
Randall gave him the 5 mg of Pred this morning with his heart pill, and I've bumped up his Lasix. This will be his new dose through Saturday. Sunday, I'll begin stepping down his Pred.
I'll monitor his weight daily, too, so if any change occurs, I should know about it pretty quickly.
I'll get another update in here tomorrow morning (or this afternoon if it's needed).
