Please Prayers and Healing Thoughts for Patcheeno!

He's at the Emergency Vet. He very suddenly became ill last night. I had to leave him there after being at the vet a few hrs. It is horrible to be away from my little man and not be there to show him I care.

Patcheeno had all types of tests, x-rays, and ultrasounds last night prior to the surgical procedure.

He had emergency surgery which was finished somewhere around 4am, and then had to have a blood transfusion which we thought might be necessary since his red blood cells went very low before the surgery which was why we couldn't wait for the specialist. Right now he is stable and his temp has come back up (it had been very low). They are monitoring him closely.

The vet and staff are wonderful. One of the desk girls owns a Rescued AmStaff. They love him and all they could do was talk about how good and adorable he is.. So that at least made me feel better. I have never been to this place.

I will be able to go and see him later on, I have to wait for him to recover more and for their visiting hrs.

I will keep you updated on his status.

For those who don't know him, I've had him since he was 5 weeks old and he is going to be 10 on May 18th. He is my baby.

I'm a huge mess right now. I'll try and post more tomorrow.

Thanks for taking the time to think of him.

Thanks again!

Vet update said he is doing as well as can be expected. He won't eat yet, but that is normal.

They said most likely he will be there for a minimum of 48 hrs. I hate him being away. He is not used to being crated as he is the king of the house! At least he is in a large crate there and I know he has blankets and even had a heating pad when I was there last night.

I hope he's ok!
Did you have any questions about what happened that I might be able to answer?

I hope it was something simple like a blockage !

Only time will tell, but he was feeling better last night, and when I spoke to the this morning they said he was watching everyone working and more alert. He just wants to come home, and I miss him so much :(.
