I picked up a saline nose spray today. He has no allergies......that we are aware of. Because he is in the house so much I'm wondering if that is doing it. I will look for the ocean gel and see if that helps. (It's lousy to talk about
but to leave the nose alone long enough to heal fully is how to clear it up. But of course it's hard to leave it alone, then it starts to bleed and just compounds the problem.)
In the big picture that's the least of his worries I guess.
Stacey -- good luck with the glipizide - it would be great if it helps to make a difference for you and decreases gastro irritations.
We went out with our friends Sunday night even though he was a bit uncomfortable. Had an awesome day all day Monday. Yesterday so so. Today a little yard work and basically stayed in. But all in all not too bad. Thanks for asking.
