All about Poirot, continued...
The skin biopsy showed chronic inflammation, related to his immune system and not the cause. It could be from the bacteria in his intestines, but we don't really know at this time. A friend of Dr. Speer's is still working on Poirot's case, trying to find a correlation between the two. We are hoping that the skin issue is resolved with the GI tract issue. If either issue comes back there is a treatment plan ready.

All of this is immune related. Boosting his immune system right now, would encourage his body to attack all the wrong things again. For now he's off all medicines. He's to be kept stress free and extremely busy. They worked on his foraging skills, even leaving him with things to do at nighttime, so his mind would be off his feathers.

Poirot was extremely happy down there at the hospital. He entertained the staff with his talking, engaging in conversations with anyone willing to talk to him and would eagerly go to anyone. The bigger his audience the more he would speak. Dr. Speer and many of the staff said they would miss Poirot when he left. It was also mentioned in surprise that Poirot isn't scared of anything, which is true except for cookie sheets, wrapping paper and yellow trucks on the highway.

I got to take Poirot out of his cage. He greeted me with very loud whistles and tried to lean out of the cage before it was open. It was wonderful to see him again. He was absolutely delightful all the way home and not afraid of any yellow trucks. I had to get a bag of pellets and he came into the store and greeted people. Another stop at Home Depot had him whistling along with some music.He's come home with a self confidence and independence that was lacking while he was not well. This is something I definitely want to encourage in him.
