Hello everyone, wanted to update you on Skipper. Thank you for all the wonderful comments and emails, we really appreciate it.
What a week, Skipper came home on Monday evening and we were at the emergency vet at midnight and the hospital (QVSH in Cambridge) the next day. We were having to feed her via her tube as she was not eating but I am happy to say she has started to eat today. We had to go back to the hospital today as her feeding tube was becoming infected (red patch on her tummy). We decided it would be best to remove it. Her surgical wound has healed well and we are hoping the little hole where the feeding tube was will heal in a couple of days.
She is much brighter today and we think that the worst might be over. She has a slight case of pancreatitis and possibly too much copper in her liver but they are both treatable by diet. She almost died from a very large hairball in her stomach which is very scary. We are grateful for the happy accidents which led to them finding the hairball while inserting the feeding tube.
In the photo above we had just got back from the hospital and she was still recovering from the sedation. :)
Thank God for happy accidents and for healing prayers and thoughts.
Thank you from Skipper.
