Man, this is so complicated! I've got a green tree python, and let me tell you, keeping it healty and happy is NOTHING compared to this! I feel like if you can maintain a healthy VC, you can do absolutely anything...

I've got her in a 10 gallon tank with paper towel substrate. I'm sure it's totally inadequate for a healthy cham, but I'm thinking that maybe a smaller home makes a sick reptile feel more secure??? As she grows stronger I can move her to a taller, permanent cage. She's got several levels of branches that she can climb, all with a gentle slope. Lots of fake leaves to hide in. I've been misting 2-3 times per day, and I put 10 gut fed and calcium dusted crickets in her cage.
I put a heat lamp on one side, and tomorrow I'll get a 5.0 Reptisun tube bulb, since everybody swears by it. She'll go back to the vet on Friday for injections of meds.

Does that sound right? What else can/should I do for her? Thanks
