we tried activated charcoal...

on Saturday, mid afternoon. I was able to get him to drink water w/the charcoal mixed in. Dominic's got doing shots down - he doesn't even blink now when he has to drink something funny looking / tasting, he just shoots it.

So, his silliness and high energy definately calmed down afterwards, and hasn't picked back up since. As expected, the charcoal constipated him a little bit, so i need to figure out what to do about that.

We probably won't do it every day, only if he's super silly and high energy. We figured out when we can do it - we can take it with us and give it to him right before he goes into Alpine. Alternatively, Alpine can do it for us if we get a medication instruction form filled out by the doctor. (we'll discuss that with him on Thursday)
