We missed our Wednesday EG update because Momma had to take EG back to the V-E-T. He hadn’t gone potty since early Tuesday morning and he hadn’t been drinking very much. So the V-E-T poked at his bladder and said it felt ok and had some potty in there. Dr. P said that he would probably go last night (which he did). She gave him some fluids under the skin again and gave Momma a syringe so that she can help EG drink if he’s still having trouble with his water dish. (He has to wear the cone until he gets his stitches taken out and he has a hard time drinking out of the dish). The tech had to help Momma give him his pain pill and eye drops while they were there because Daddy was at work and couldn’t help. EG didn’t like that at all.
The V-E-T said that EG’s incision looked great, but felt bad because his belly is all bruised. She said that she’s very happy that he’s eating and pooping. Momma just has to watch him and make sure he keeps eating and pooping and hopefully peeing.
He’s still pretty out of it because of the pain medicine. You can tell when it’s starting to wear off because he gets really wild and chatty. Momma took him with her to work today. He’s got a big dawg prison box with a litter box and fluffy towels to lay on and a water dish. Momma has to give him snacks every couple of hours, so he’s happy about that. I wish I could get a snack every couple of hours. That would be sweet!
I’ve got a lot of stuff to do today. My catnip sushi toy is calling me.
Thanks for thinking of us and purraying for us, too.
