Toby update Thurs 2012-11-08
Toby is still in hospital. Vet called a few times. Toby ate some last evening and was perking up a bit (good sign). IV fluids and meds seem to helping. This morning's X-ray showed spleen is reduced in size so surgery to remove it is no longer being considered (Hooray!). Still a gas pocket near stomach exit into intestines. Vet starting barium series this morning: X-rays every 15 mins first hour followed by 30 mins thereafter. This should show if there's any blockage and also barium is therapeutic to intestines, so should also help. Vet should call with update about 1pm. Chances of survival are high! God is good! Keep praying!
