    DefaultHe was home for an hour...

    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...

    ugh

    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.

    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..?

    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.
