Hi everyone. This is the kids' Mom. Yesterday, Earl threw up pretty much all day. He went to the vet and they gave him some medicine to make him stop barfing, but it didn't work. He also got some fluids so he wouldn't get dehydrated.
He didn't act any better and the non-barfy medicine wasn't helping, so we took him to the kitty emergency room early this morning.
They did a bunch of bloodwork. Everything checked out ok except for 1 liver enzyme (ATP?). The high value is supposed to be 124. His was 1076, so it’s pretty bad. They don’t know what’s making it do that. It could be a virus or something he ate. They also think he might have an obstruction somewhere in his GI tract. They kept him there. He’s getting an IV for fluids and they’re giving him pain meds and antibiotics. I just called to check on him and they said he had peed (which he didn’t do at all yesterday) and he was a little perkier. He also hadn't thrown up since he's been there. They’re going to do more bloodwork in a couple of hours to check his electrolytes. Then around 4 they’re going to do another x-ray to see if they can see any obstruction. If that looks ok, then they’re going to see if he can keep some food down. I’m supposed to call around 6 and see how’s he doing. Please pray for him. We’re so worried.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and thank you, Skeezix, for getting the word out. We really appreciate everything.
I'll post an update when I know more.
