He’s swallowed something — from the films, it looks like one of those clips that come with the Da Bird cat-toy. Around 24 hours ago he started puking. I kept hoping it would get better. It didn’t. I was up all night with him and when he puked again at 4:30 this morning, I bundled him to the emergency vet.
By now he may be under. He was dehydrated and so the vet wanted him to stay on electrolyte drip until his blood —
Oh jeez I don’t believe it. Now Bugs is throwing up his breakfast.
Enough. I better go clean up.
Please — the next few hours are going to be critical for Barney. Please pray for him, or do whatever you do that’s prayer-like.
Happy new year. You think?
Update three hours later: Vet just called. Barney tolerated the surgery well and complications appear unlikely. More details to follow. But for now: YAYAYAY. Also, Bugsy ate some baby-food. New Year is starting to look a lot better. After a somewhat questionable start.
