    How did Ruckus do last night? I will out out in the morning, but I'll check in once I get home...

    Following up on Mr. Ruckus this morning, how is the baby doing?

    My first thought when I saw it was a "hair ball". It really does look like one wrapped around a chunk of hardwood mulch. I hope his X-Ray report is a good one. Get well soon, Ruckus!

    Default Off to the vet -- swollen neck, vommitting, possible blockage

    Thank you thank you everyone for the prayers and tips! Ruckus slept a lot when we got home yesterday and through the night. He would wake up from time to time to come get a snuggle or readjust but he didn't throw up last night and I did feed him a little bit, a few handfuls here and there because he seemed hungry. I am concerned that he didn't poop yesterday after maybe 12pm and that was just the tiniest drop, we'll see how the morning walk goes. I have not taken him yet because I can't bear to break up the snuggle session we've got going on, he's resting his chin on my leg and getting some ear scratches.


    @TyTysmom Thank you for sharing, I'm worried the same might happen where they think everything is out but the X-ray missed something. I'm still waiting for the radiologist report and I'm getting impatient. He's just not himself and I'm not stopping until I get to the bottom of this. I know you didn't say it to scare me and I appreciate the reminder that we know our babies best and if we have a gut instinct that they still aren't ok, they're probably not ok.

    I should get going and head to work -- I'm glad I have a job where I can come in late in situations like this, but I'm clearly pushing it. I'm going to call the vet on my walk and see if the radiologist report is back -- she said they were taking longer than normal and it was due back by 8am. Soooo. I'll keep you guys updated.

    Here's a picture of the patient on the ride home yesterday to counterbalance the vomit pictures I posted yesterday.

    Ugh, I am so sorry, I am just seeing this now! I am up to my ears in puppy land!! I am praying sweet Ruckus is on the mend. I have heard of those crazy hair balls collecting in the stomach and they are just as bad as a blockage. Hopefully that is all that was in there. I will be looking back in a bit for an update. Give the baby kisses, and to nurse Regina as well!
    My smooshy face boy!

    So glad to see he's snuggling and resting. We're thinking of him (well, Castor is snoring right now but I'll give him a report when he wakes up). Take care, Ruckus!

    Ugh... well I'm glad to hear that he slept well during the night. Keep us posted and hopefully that damn radiologist will get in touch w/you!!!
