ill

Kallie caught David's cold. The back of her throat/nose hurts so bad, she's having a hard time talking and swallowing.

Max is dying. Seriously. He has dropsy, which is apparently the only real fatal thing that bettas can get. Everything else can be treated. His scales stick outward instead of laying flat, meaning he has liquid built up in his body, meaning his kidneys are failing. He is also breathing rapidly through his gills, which is another sign of dropsy. He hasn't eaten in four days. :( The chlorine from the toilet water would kill him in a few hours. But we can't stand to do that. So we're just waiting for him to die. Sniff.
