Beatin’ The Heat

Monty's new water bed

So we got Monty a water bed. Yep, I’ll let that sink (har har) in a little…

As a result of the Prednisone side effects, we’ve been watching him splay out for weeks on the Terrazzo floor trying to stay cool. In an effort to keep him comfortable AND cool we picked up the Cool Bed III and have been happy to see him using it regularly. With the amount of body heat he is putting off it’s hard for him to stay in any one place that absorbs and retains his heat for very long, so this has been the perfect solution to help regulate his body temperature. He uses it on the floor during the day while I work, and at night we have been putting it on the end of the bed. I’ll admit I was a little skeptical, but when I pick him up in the morning to go out the temperature difference of any part of his body not on the bed is pretty amazing.
