poor ralf has some respiratory problems. he has asthma to being with, and i was reading that stress can axacerbate asthma. well, he’s been having these issues since stan arrived, and stan’s awfully stressful. he might also have a cold on top of that, so his wheezing sounds pretty horrible. he seems to be ok the rest of the time, but he doens’t sound great. i think i’ll give it another week and see if he gets a little better. stan gets fixed on wednesday, so maybe he’ll calm down a little it.
