As far as the pin turning goes, I have been doing great! Unfortunately, I am still having problems with my tummy and pooping when I need to so I have had a few rough nights. I was grumpy again today until early afternoon when I finally pooped and then life was good again.
In the evening, I found a new game to play with Chili - if I put some popcorn between my toes he will very carefully pull it out. He's very gentle!
