    Dozer is still not out of the woods , We took Dozer to the vet at 1:00, as he was drooling, water from his mouth and threw up again just before we left. The appt was for 2:00, but we took him early and she assessed him to see if he was in any immediate danger. She aid all his vitals were fine, temperature was fine, she felt his tummy and colon, and could feel a wad there, she wasn't sure if it was stool or the paper towel. She did an internal check of his butt, and asked us to take him for a walk to see if he would go poop again. We walked him outside and he pooped and passed another piece of the paper towel, I kept the poop and brought it into the vet for her to see. She agreed that it was a piece of paper towel. She wanted an x- ray to see exactly where the obstruction was. She said if its in the colon were ok, because he would pass it, but if its in the small intestine, then he may need surgery because it will swell up, damn that Bounty Quicker upper, why does it have to be so absorbent? She took an x- ray, and it shows a good size wad of the paper, and its partially in the colon, and partially in the small intestine. So where we are right now, is she says it can go either way, she gave him an hour of IV fluids, an injection for pain, and one to stop the vomiting . She also gave us some medicine to coat his stomach. We are on a watch him like a hawk and if anything changes were off to the Emergency hospital. She sent us home with a list of all the medications she had given him, the x-rays, and 3 cans of fibre food. She called us a few minutes ago, to see how he was doing, right now he's really sleepy from the medications, resting very comfortably beside me, and vomiting has stopped. She told me to give him the stomach coating medication and then wait about an hour, and feed him the fibre food, she wants to see if he keeps this down. If he doesn't then that's not a good sign, and we're off to the emerg hospital. I'm hoping he does keep it down, and that the fibre food is able to push the paper towel down into his colon, so he can pass it. We're really worried and keeping a close eye on him, I'm keeping him right beside me. Please pray for him, and hope he doesn't need surgery tonight. I'm freaking out at the thought of my baby having to be cut open.

    I posted the pics of the X-ray, it shows where the wad is, but I don't know if its too dark to see on the picture , it's the long black shadow that you can see on the X-ray

    Yeah I'm am so happy right now. I gave the stomach coating medication to Dozer, then after an hour gave him the first TBsp of the fibre food. The vet had also given him a laxative before we left. He looked like he needed to go outside, so I took him out just now, and he was looking for a place to poop, he seemed to be straining, and finally he passed quite a thick stool. It was dark outside, so I brought him inside, placed him in the crate for safety, and went outside with a bag, and picked up the poop. I placed it on a paper towel, and put plastic bags on my hands, and pulled the poop apart. No paper towel, but there was a grey Old Navy sweat sock that belonged to my Grandson. Yeah he passed it, and already seems better, I hope there isn't anything else in there, but the size of the sock, and the size of the shadow of the wad in the x-ray is about the same. Still going to watch him, and not feed him. I do have a follow- up vet appointment tomorrow, as she wanted us to bring him back to check on him. I'm going to get her to take another X-ray to make sure the shadow where the obstruction is showing is gone. I'll update everyone tomorrow, or if anything changes between then and now, but I hope and think he's passed everything. I'll let you know what the vet says tomorrow after I get back.

    I want to thank everyone for their caring words, good thoughts, and prayers you sent Dozer, he heard them, and came through this. That's why I love this site, many good people, that listen to your worries, and lots of good advice . You Guys are all awesome. Dozer sends his love too.

    Here are some pictures of the sock that Dozer passed

    Thanks guys, I'm relieved, still going to the vet tomorrow, for the follow up check up, and to redo the X-ray to make sure there are no more obstructions, but like I said, the size of the sock is consistent with the size of the shadow on the X-ray, so hoping everything passed. Will check in tomorrow after the vet with an update, and let you know what she says. For now he seems very comfortable, just sleepy from all the medications. Will still watch him closely tonight, my husband nd works midnights from Sunday night to Thursday night, so he is off tonight, and since he's on that schedule, he will take the night shift to watch him, just in case, but I think he's out of the woods. Thank God.
