More Good Thoughts Needed

This time it is Cadi's turn to need our good thoughts. She is at the vet's tonight (at her house) trying hard to avoid surgery for an obstruction. She chewed up and ate a tracking glove that (Bad) Karma likely knocked off the frig. These gloves are regularly stuffed with chicken so it was well marinated and no doubt tasted just like -- chicken :(

I found a piece of it in her poop a few days ago so I was worried this would happen, and we could tell things were brewing last night. She started throwing up at 2 a.m. and I had her to the vet first thing this morning. The vet can feel the obstruction and it is too far down for an endoscopy so our choices are surgery or else she will pass it.

Nobody else would know that Cadi was not okay -- she was waggy and happy this morning, but just not her usual 110% Cadi. So we got her in early and can afford to wait and see if fluids and medication to help with intestinal motility will allow us avoid surgery. Truthfully, the vet did not seem hopeful but at least we can try.

I am sick about this -- mad at myself for leaving the glove on top of the frig, worried for Cadi, and very sad knowing that if she has surgery she will not be able to go to the Specialty after all of our hard work.

So think good thoughts -- please -- for our sweet Cadi.


  1. Our Sam is an everything eater, and we've had very good luck with the fluids pushing things through. I am praying for Cadi and hope this works for her!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about Cadi. I'm sending lots of love and prayers her way.
