Hi, Sorry I did not post yesterday, but last night things were not looking very good. Monty had vomited 5 times and they were last night considering whether they may have to operate again today, so were stopping the small amount of food he was having at midnight last night. I was really worried and upset. I could not dare write anything!


This morning looked a little better and they had decided not to operate and resume small amounts of food and see how he would do today. Anyway I spoke to somebody at about 5.00pm and they said he had gone 24 hours now without being sick so they were more hopeful. It is just now a waiting game, but I feel a bit better tonight than I did last. Because my mind has not been on the job, I have had a lot to catch up on today and this is the first chance I have had to post.


Thanks so much again for all the support. It sure helps when the chips are down to know that there is such support around.

Whoa what a relief!
It is so hard when your thoughts and emotions are running in fast forward yet the physical signs seem to run in slow motion. It is hard enough to remember to breathe during these times let alone do anything else!
So happy to hear this positive news though! May the road be super smooth from here on in!

I know everyone will be so pleased to hear that Monty is home. We will all look forward to seeing a photograph of him in his gorgeous lampshade, when you have time.

Take care,

Lyn

Monty came out of the hospital last night, with a pink lampshade.

Unfortunately we have just arrived home from taking Monty back to the hospital, a 132 mile round trip. He was not that well when he came out last night but had deteriorated during the day today. He now has a temperature and his breathing is not that good. I just want to sit down and cry!!

Our own vet had to give him an antibiotic injection and some tablets. We are just going round in circles. Will post when I have more news. I think I must sleep now, as we hardly had any last night, and I don't think my thoughts and words are making much sense tonight.

I am so sorry that this has happened.
This situation is overwhelmingly intense. I remember being in tears all night long after leaving my boy at the vet overnight let alone what you are going through. :'(
Sleep well, you need your strength and know that extra mega prayers are being said for you all today.

Oh Lesley, I'm so sorry. I hope you get better news this morning. Poor Monty, he's having a rough time too. Hang on in there, stay strong - please know you are in my thoughts.

Sending hugs,
