No update yet. I did call last night and they said he was "fine". But he's in ICU so I take it "fine" means he's the "same".
Going there now.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
His vet just called. Said he's showing improvement. They'll x-ray again tomorrow and if it looks better, may release him tomorrow afternoon. I mentioned we have Blue and I don't think it's a good idea (since it's gonna be difficult to keep him calm), and he said good to know, they'll keep him there for at least another few days.
Either way, we're leaving now.
Thanks everyone for your prayers and good thoughts, please keep them coming. I love you guys, and can't begin to express how much I appreciate the well wishes.
Oh gosh Ellie, I'm just NOW reading this…
I'm so so sorry to hear about Wellie, my GOD it's a good thing that you trusted your instincts and took him in to the vets straight away. I can't believe that after seeing all those vets that nobody even hinted at having a respiratory issue… I swear I don't understand why they can't seem to diagnose this. Sending you lots of hugs and prayers right now, I know you guys are worried sick… please keep us posted!!!

Fingers crossed, and sending positive healing thoughts....

Me and my crew are praying for a full recovery! Stay positive mama

I'm a good girl, I promise
@Bluberrys Mom I am so sorry for Wellie falling ill. My positive thoughts, well wishes, and prayers are on the way.
Poor wellie! I hope he recovers quickly.
We saw him earlier. He was happy to see us, definitely not lethargic, but doesn't have much energy either. I'm just glad he's doing better. Poor baby has two IV's administering different antibiotics.
When I asked the vet how come no doctor was able to see anything, he said aspiration pneumonia can progress quickly and could of happened just a day ago.
They also saw he has a hiatal hernia and are thinking it's contributing to the regurgitation. They're going to be talking to a specialist tomorrow. Wellie may have to have it corrected when he goes in for his other procedures. Provided of course he makes it through this OK.
Thanks everyone. You guys are the best.
As I was typing the above his vet called:
He's much better. They took him off fluids because he's drinking and eating on his own (he got his appetite back), and the dr. said he even rolled over for a belly rub when he saw him coming. Wellie's a love bug. So they're very happy with the improvement. But it's all about what the X-ray shows tomorrow. If they're happy with it, they'll be sending him home tomorrow night, if they're still unsure, they'll at least be moving him out of ICU into the secondary care unit and will keep him there longer.
