Earl McGrey’s Mom here:
Earl McGrey had to go back to the V-E-T yesterday for another check up. He didn’t have to get any bloodwork done because his values were so good on Saturday. He did get another x-ray and more pokes in the belly (which didn’t seem to hurt this time). His x-ray showed that the bunched up spot in his intestines that was there on Saturday was all gone. No more bunching! :) Dr. Montgomery doesn’t think he has an obstruction any more, but he may have pancreatitis or inflammatory bowel disease. He wouldn’t hold still for the techs to draw more blood to do the check for pancreatitis, so we’re not sure what it is at this point. He has to take his barfy medicine until Friday and continue on his bland diet for 7 days. We can start adding in his regular kibble little by little and if he doesn’t throw up as we’re adding in the kibble, then we can think that it’s pancreatitis.
He was jumping around on the counters yesterday and trying to play with O’Titus, so he’s pretty much back to normal. I stayed home from work yesterday and we all did lots and lots of cuddling.
Thank you all for all your purrayers and thoughts. Last week was a really scary week and it means a lot to us that you all were thinking of us. I appreciate all the supportive notes and e-mails. I’m really new to this whole kitty thing and it’s sooo scary when they’re sick.
Thanks again. The Furry Kids should be back blogging in the next day or so. They’re getting sick of me hogging the computer. :)
