    Default Need Prayers

    So, I was trying to help out a young student at the local High School (I found out that he was abused & his home life is extremely unstable) and let him move into the basement of my home so he could finish his senior year & graduate. Thursday morning, I awoke to find empty food wrappers on my couch, coffee table & other trash scattered around my living / dining area. Winston began acting funny this morning and spent most of the day in bed. He's eating a little & drinking water, but I'm concerned that he's gotten a hold of one of the pieces of trash that he left. Any advice or prayers would be really welcome. Thanks for your support.

    Aww poor Nelson, sending love, hugs and prayers that he is okay. He may just have an upset tummy from eating the food, due to not being used to it, or he may have swallowed some of the wrappers. Keep an eye on him for signs of obstruction, such as drooling water from his mouth, vomiting or diarrhea. My male Dozer swallows socks a lot and he has had an obstruction twice. Last time was just last week, he had swallowed a sock a month ago and threw it up exactly 29 days later. He was fine, acted normal, ate drank, and played. It can take time for him to pass it, but he most likely will, as it is paper and will break down, and he will probably poop it out. I hope he is able to pass it quickly and feels better soon. Please keep us posted on how he's doing.

    Thanks so much, I'm just absolutely terrified for him (as I'm sure you understand). The only things that were left out were string cheese wrappers, maybe a plastic Baggie & paper bags (what I packed his lunch in). It makes me feel much better that you say the plastic will break down!

    After this & the other stuff that's happened this week, I've decided that I just can't house a teen here. Too many liabilities & especially not at the risk of my pets. So he's staying with another friend, but my main concern right now is Winston. It's going to be a long night

    Oh no! Sending prayers that Winston is okay. It's a good sign that he's eaten and drank and didn't throw up. Hopefully he'll be back to himself in the morning.

    Thanks so much! Yeah, it's why I haven't taken him to the emergency vet yet. He's eating, although not as much as normal, and he's drinking water, both good signs. He's just not acting like his normal perky self. I'm praying we get one big poo in the morning with whatever it is that he swallowed. He's in bed now so I'm going to watch over him tonight & hope all goes well.

    Aw man, I hope it's nothing! Especially since you are trying to help a young student out too!

    Ugh you & me both. I'm hoping he's just overly tired, but he just doesn't act this way. I tried to give him breakfast & he turned his nose up at it & went back upstairs to his bed. He spent pretty much the entire day in bed, only coming downstairs when I really encouraged him to. He'd only stay if he could cuddle with me on the couch. Otherwise he was right back in his bed again...poor guy

    For you and Winston. I hope he will be much better, and be himself tomorrow.
