Radio silence incurred because as if we needed another family member to get sick, Drake ended up spending the weekend in an emergency clinic.
After a few days of just not seeming right, one large puke, and a missing lens-bag cord was noticed, we decided to take him in to the vet. Cue much of Saturday spent in vet waiting rooms, wondering what it would take to get our fur baby right again.
It turns out he had quite a lot of inflammation in his GI tract and in general his bloodwork showed that his body was somewhat angry at whatever was going on. X-rays didn’t show any obvious foreign objects, but as he was also quite dehydrated, the decision was made to transfer him to an after hours clinic where they would give him fluids, do a contrast study, and in general work to get him comfortable.
After spending 2 nights there, he’s back home, and luckily eating and drinking in a more normal fashion. He seems thoroughly exhausted and a little dull in the eyes after his experience, and the husband and I are both hoping he cheers up soon.
I’m working for home in order to keep an eye on him, and doing what we can to get him to perk up. Please send healing thoughts for my precious boy to feel better!
