Get well Chus
Thursday evening we noticed that Chus wasn't acting right. Around 1am we took him to the animal ER to find out that he had a stone in his bladder and it was causing his bladder to back up w/ urine. At 4am we took him out to the burbs to a specialty clinic (which incidently is the same clinic that operated on him last year) because he had to have an emergency operation to remove the stone. It is now Saturday afternoon and he is safe and sound home w/ us again :) Poor thing was really scared, but my little guy is a survivor and he should be all better very soon. He's on meds, and in 2 weeks can have his stitches removed.
I don't know if any of you are pet owners (or even parents for that matter) but the stress that one goes through when these type of emergencies occur is really overwhelming. Even though I was up til 6am Friday, I couldn't really sleep until I knew that he was out of harm's way. I don't think I properly slept until maybe 3pm in the afternoon.
The scary thing about this is that it just appears out of nowhere. It's not there are any symptoms. Scary stuff. But thanks to those of you who sent your kind words and prayers. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
