My little princess is still at the vet. The doc called yesterday and said he was waiting one more day on the surgery. She is still not eating and he started her on IV fluids. They are still doing x-rays to see where the barium is going. Apparently it isn’t moving through her gut as it’s supposed to.
I sat at my desk at work and cried like a stressed, hormonal pregnant woman, because I couldn’t pick her up yesterday. I didn’t have the balls to ask what my vet bill was – home girl has been getting an x-ray every hour for the past 2 days. I know it’s all worth it but can you sell a kidney while your pregnant??
I got another call from my amazing vet yesterday afternoon. He said Maggie had “passed” the squeaker from a toy and a sh*t-ton of pine straw. Hopefully this was the problem and she didn’t ingest the entire toy. She’s still at the vet today and they will start her on a bland diet. If she keeps it down she MIGHT be able to come home tonight.
I went home last night and threw away EVERY toy we had. This has been a terrible experience. If you have any tips on toys that are indestructible please let me know. I kept her tennis balls and one kong toy but anything she can tear up I tossed.
Thanks for your sweet comments and thoughts. I can feel the love and I’m sure Mags can too! Y’all are awesome!
