Earl Grey's Mom here:
The vet on nights last night called and asked me to bring EG some kibble and some boiled chicken & rice. I took that in late last night, but he wasn’t allowed to eat anything because he had thrown up just before I got there. Dr. Matt said that he was concerned because Earl hadn’t pooped since he’d been there and the x-rays showed he had stuff in there that should’ve come out by now (the syringe feeding should’ve pushed it through). He showed me the x-ray and said that there were two pretty dense areas of (hopefully) stool that just weren’t moving. They were going to give him an enema to try to get them out. They were also going to try to feed him at midnight and 4.
I stayed with him for about an hour and he was a lot perkier. Not quite himself, but way better than Sunday.
Dr. Matt called this morning and said that the enema produced a “moderate amount of really dense material” and then that was followed by some more diarrhea-type stuff which was normal. They gave him an appetite stimulant around midnight and syringe fed him again. They checked his vitals at 4 and he was pretty stressed out, so one of the techs cuddled him and held him for a while. After that, he chowed down on his kibble from home.
I just called a couple of minutes ago and the tech said that he hadn’t thrown up any more and that he had eaten again around 9 (and it was staying put so far). She said they had two emergencies between 6 and 8 am so he missed his dose of the appetite stimulant so he was eating on his own. *thumbs up*
They’re going to check his liver stuff this afternoon and let me know how that’s doing. I’ll update again as soon as I have any more news.
Thanks for praying and thinking about us. We really appreciate it. Hopefully he can come home soon. Titus and especially Tazo miss him a lot.
