Snowy had a good night!
He ate a teeny little bit of food this morning and is keeping it down so far. The vet is still waiting on one of the pancreatic tests to come back, but she thinks that his most recent and urgent problems (vomiting, no eating, etc) are diet-related.
She’s going to keep him in the hospital most of the day and keep I.V. fluids going; if all goes well, we can pick him up mid afternoon. He’ll be sent home on an antibiotic, Prednisone, and a liver medicine; she said he’d have to stay on the liver med for the rest of his life.
She’s also putting him on an entirely different “medical diet” from the “medical diet” he’s been on for the past year.
But we can deal with lots of meds and new diets. He’s alive! He’s coming home!
May I just add that it’s pretty easy to tell who the popular member of the Smith family is. When I checked the page view counter at 10 am, it was already at the number that usually takes until early afternoon to reach. In other words, you guys are checkin’ in on him often.
He’ll be so pleased to hear that.
