I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Blondie, please?

Ptyalism (increased salivation) and epiphora (watery eyes) are autonomic nervous system signs consistent with gastrointestinal distress. I would conjecture that her antibiotics are causing that distress. Please let me know which antibiotic has been administered.
