And then started vomiting blood. He's been re-admitted to the e-vet, will likely be there for a little while.
His kidney values are not good, his red cell counts are low, and the fact that he's vomiting blood means his GI system has been compromised in a major way. At this point he's on fluids again, and big time meds to try and prevent ulceration/perforation. Also something for the vomiting.
We were in such high spirits picking him up and taking him home... and now...
I just want this to be over. I want my baby back here with me NOW. I want off this rollercoaster, it's getting harder to hold it together...
How scary for you ......... I will keep you both in my prayers.

Oh no. Kate, hang in there. It's all going to be OK. I'll be watching for updates. Can I help you google research anything while you're waiting?
Do you know approximately how many pills he had, and how many mg they were?
Oh no! More prayers headed your way.
“If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

That's whats killing me Connie, they were 400 mg pills, but I have no idea how many were in the bottle. Could have been three or fifteen, I honestly don't know and try as I might, can NOT remember. We also don't know *when* they were ingested either, which hurts diagnostics.
So the more I look up toxic doses per kg, the more I worry there was lots on that stupid bottle... and ugh what if? what if? what if? You know..?
God I dont even make sense anymore. I think I'm losing my mind.
Sh*t! Sorry Kate. I've been quietly watching the updates. It sounded really hopeful when I left for work this morning & then I come home to this.
I hope he makes a quick recovery. Neither of you need this.
Sending some good thoughts and prayers for Boomanchew. Hang in there.
