|Love - Snowball loving on his Pop.|
We want to thank you all for your kind words, cards and messages about our sweet Yoko. Mom is still getting back to everyone to thank them personally.
Snowball is our model today and he has been having some rough times. A few days after we lost Yoko, he became obstructed and we had to bring him to the vet for enemas. He did real well with all the procedures and finally hours later got down to business only to become blocked again a few days later. Back to the vet again on Friday and he got another enema plus fluids.
So far so good - he has been able to move his bowels. It looks like we are on a protocol of chia to keep regular, special goats milk with added probiotics, lactulose to soften and pumpkin for fiber. It is working but we will have to give him fluids every few days to help move things thru.
Thanks so much for all the suggestions and advise from those who have been there. We hope to have things working smoothly soon. The vet mentioned megacolon as something that may be going on or not. Time will tell on that one. We appreciate all the purrs and prayers for our dear boy.
We are waaay behind on our cards so expect them for New Years! The tree is up and with lights on it when Mom did that for Yoko but she has not had the heart to finish decorating it. It will be a toned down quiet holiday this year. But that is OK!
