Techie seems to be recovering, but I'm still watchful over him. He has to see the vet this morning because he licked open his stitches!

It's amazing to me how fast he came back from the brink; I really hope he stays with me a few more years. I'm not ready for him to leave me yet :-)

Techie had emergency surgery today and a set of 2 baby socks was removed from his intestines!!

His liver and kidney damage aren't as bad as the Dr. thought, BUT he has severe infection of the intestine. The Dr. cut out the necrotic sections but the entire thing is bloody and infected so he is on strong antibiotics. It will be a watch and wait situation...please say a little doggy prayer for him to St. Francis or whoever you pray to. We love him so much :-(

Techie's home from the vet. An enema was administered but nothing wanted to come out. It seems the obstruction is stuck right in the wazoo. I'm giving him mineral oil in the hopes that will help, but if by Sunday nothing comes out, then he has to have surgery on Monday :-(

Techie's very sick :-(

Techie has an obstruction in his tummy which caused liver issues. He's at the vet right now on a drip to hydrate him and give him antibiotics. We've been told to feed him mineral oil when he gets home, in the hopes of getting out whatever he has in there.

This is the 2nd time he's gotten so ill from eating things he shouldn't. In 2001 he swallowed a hair scrunchie (hence his middle name) and he didn't eat for 13 days, and the vet was treating him for tick fever ayayay. I woke one morning to find diarrhea all over the kitchen with a scrunchie in the center. After that he was fine. He's older now, though. Say a little doggy prayer to St. Francis that he gets better.
