    Hi @CARL58 Jen, thank you for updating us. I'm sorry they aren't telling you much, this must be very stressful for yourself. I hope the medication is helpful for him, even if you aren't too sure what it is, I'm sure it's in his best interest if it has been prescribed. It's great that you are able to still take him food and I hope Carl gains trust with them soon :)
