Blue is sick.

Blue is sick.

He'd been kinda weird about his food,
meaning he'd smell it and not eat it all.
So I thought it was his food and then
He threw up a sock at lunch time yesterday
and then another at dinner.
Both socks were completely intact.
Not chewed, just swallowed.
Another odd thing is,
I haven't worn socks for months.
I gave him a while for his tummy to settle and then I gave him special canned food
and he threw that up.
Then he threw up 2 times before bed
And once during night
And twice in morning.
Once in my car and another time here at work.
They gave him an injection for vomiting etc. he won't eat canned, dry or treats. Now they are doing a barium series,
Which involves lots of X-rays.
They are also doing blood tests.
He might be a senior
But he's still a puppy to me
 I know it will all be OK.
Still, Blue and I would appreciate any good healing thoughts and energy that you could send his way.

The last X-ray of the day showed that the barium had not moved past his stomach.
It should have gone through to his intestines hours before.
Therefore they say it must be a blockage of some sort
or an issue with his intestines not functioning as they should
and squeezing it through.
They are pretty sure there's a blockage.
If it hasn't passed through by the morning
they will do exploratory surgery.

I suppose that some might hesitate doing surgery on a Great Dane who's
almost 11.
But... I have no choice, I must have it done.
So PLEASE, everyone visualize whatever it is
passing through BLue's intestines.
Or him vomiting it up.
It just needs to get out of there!

Oh Jean!
Thank you! Thank you!
I'm just bawling my head off right now
and I've got to get it together and be positive.
I know that if Doc does have to do the surgery
that he'd very skilled but....
I worry about Blue and his age and
NO! He's going to be fine!
I have to stop this!

The two-sock meal surely must've filled him up. Hoping all goes well and he goes home with you all healed up. If surgeries are probable to heal then I would do them as long as the vet assures you it's for Blue's benefit. It's a sad day when the vet recommends no more surgery as the vet is really saying no more hope. Praying with all my heart for your big guy.

Thinking good thoughts from Ohio for you and Blue!!! My great dane mix Spenser used to eat everything...he had the exact same thing; blockage. Turned out he had eaten tin foil; got him through it, and I'm sure you'll do the same for your lovely Blue.
