M&S Mom, actually that's a GREAT idea!!! I think that you're on to something here! Carolyn, all of your prayers and good thoughts are paying off!!! The 11:00 dosing went much, MUCH better!!! I used all of the techniques that you all presented and although he still didn't like it(as expected), thewhole process went much more smoothly. It didn't take us as long to catch him, we burrito ed him up, and pet himfor a while, cooed and talked to him, then I slowly slipped the syringe in. I wondered how long it wouldtake before he figured outhe could spit it out ... and he didn't let me down! lol! He slowly let it dribble out the side of his mouth. I slowly pumped it right back up into the syringe off of hisface,and slowly put it back in his mouth, all the while petting him and explaining to him that we really wanted him to feel better.He accepted, albeit ungraciously, his fate. lol! Heaven let usfeed him a few raisins this time after it was all over! Okay .... only nine more days and counting ... As an addendum, the GOOD news is that he's not sniffling or coughing at all now, so the medicine is definitely working! I'm still going to set up a follow-up doctor's appointment after his 10-day medication course, but for now things are rather looking up.
