    Default My Tate is in the hospital

    Hi guys,

    my internet's been down til now but i wanted you all to know that my baby Tate is in the hospital as of yesterday.

    He was electrocuted on Sat while biting on a plugged in cord. It has been quite an ordeal for the little guy. I really thought i lost him and yesterday the vet's prognosis was "guarded to poor" b/c he had fluid in his lungs and was having problems breathing.

    i spent time w/him last night and he was sleeping a lot d/t the morphine they gave him, and his breathing was improving thanks to the diuretics he's on.

    this a.m. the vet told me his breathing has improved significantly and his chest xray shows improvement as well. Thank God.
    He's still not totally out of the woods yet tho and they'll be keeping him in the hospital tonight as well. I spent about an hour w/him today and he was acting much more like himself. He's been on oxygen since he got to the hospital yesterday; was on a nasal cannula but he rip that out at midnight last night so now they have him in an oxygenated little cage.

    Please pray for my Tate and his full recovery. And please, please, please don't let this happen to your precious babies. Unplug, block, dismantle those electrical cords! i thought i had puppy proofed my house but obviously not.

    I blame myself 100% for what happened...i was with the cable guy who was helping fix my internet service when this all happpened...it just took a few seconds of not paying attention to him, and then i heard the most awful scream and saw Tate laying on his side, panting for air. I lost it myself but made it to the vet's somehow.

    I will keep you guys posted as best as i can about his condition. Thank you all for being there for us!

    (If i don't post anything else today it'll be b/c my internet svc is on the blink again).

    Oh POOR Tate!! (and you ) I am so sorry for your accident! Tate will be in my prayers and wishing for a speedy recovery, I am sure it could have been any one of us on here. I am/was guilty of having exposed cords even through his chewing stage, I have heard of this happening but I guess I thought it would never happen. PLEASE keep us posted and let us know as soon as you can!! Finger's crossed and prayers coming yours and Tate's way.

    Thank you, everyone, for your words of encouragement, support and prayers! Means a lot to me and Tate. I am hopeful he will pull through this. This a.m i held him for about an hour and kissed him and told him how much i love him. He kept licking my face and biting my nose! i think he knew his mommy was there with him.

    I am soo sorry for what you are going through. Don't blame yourself, it's not something you did on purpose. I know what it feels like to be in panic mode trying to get to the ER. Bullies are strong willed and I'm sure Lil Tate is giving his all to come home to your beloved arms. Your post may help someone to open their eyes and take precaution. Please keep us posted. Take care of yourself, Tate needs you.
