Charlie is not getting better, which is of course no surprise, as she was never expected to. Over the last week her guts have started giving her trouble again, cortisone or no cortisone (or perhaps because of cortisone, who knows). She seems particularly troubled in the evening, when she's had her dinner, and this is when she gets diaorrhea (I can never spell that) and her digestion is very loud indeed, she also has trouble getting comfortable. In the morning I think she feels a little better and her usual self. No way of knowing how much longer she will last, which is very sad, but it's consolation to me at least that she has no idea.
