Paddy is out of ICU!

Yes, he is out of the Intensive Care unit - he made it through the night - has responded well to his IV and he is eating and drinking (and more importantly keeping it down!).  He still has a few problems with the other end - we are hoping it settles down too.

The Vets have been on rounds - so were late calling - boy, it was causing me to get intestinal sympathy pains!  He is still there - they have done a lot of tests and they are pretty sure it is acute pancreatitis - inflammation of the pancreas - but they are not sure the cause.  So he gets ultrasound tomorrow - our poor little Paddy boy.  

The Clinician said that we should not be shocked when we see him as they have shaved him in various places to get blood/ ECG/ fluids in and out and then eventually the ultrasound.  What the hell do we care?  They can give him a Mohican for all we care -  as long as we get him back happy and alive!

We want to thank everyone for all their positive energies - it is working!

  32. Oh our gosh! So much happened while we were on the road! We just read about Paddy and were horrified to learn how ill he has been. But we are sooooo glad to hear that he was out of ICU as of last night! The past few days had to have been horrible for you all. We're hoping, with crossed paws, that the ultrasound helps identify what course of treatment to take and that he is continuing to get better and better. We've got a lot of unpacking and catching up to do, but we'll keep our eyes open for updates.

    Sending pawsitive thoughts, plentiful prayers and lots of wirey love,
    Jake and Fergi

  35. I just came from Sasha's site also. Dispatch and I are thinking and praying for Paddy. The picture of him curled up in the basket is priceless.

    I hope it's just one of those things that happens and never comes back. Dispatch had a similar spell when he was just 5 months old, he was sick sick in the evening,worse @ night and then over it before I could get him to the vet.

  37. So glad to hear that Paddy is doing better. I know someone in the USA who has a WFT prone to recurring bouts of Pancreatitis. Can give you her details, if you want some advice...
