Dood was hyperthyroid. And while we're still adjusting his meds to get the right dose, he's doing remarkably well. His weight has remained spot on at 14 pounds--still overweight but I think this is where we want him to stay--and his appetite dropped (though he still expect meals 5 times a day--and gets them--but he doesn't finish everything which I don't mind.)
I'm not counting on him making it to 18, but at this point I won't be surprised.
And yes, we really do have bedtime stories when he wants. He acts like he's reading along with me, and who knows, maybe he really is.
