Tyler is recovering!
Those close to us will already know that sleep has been scarce and hope only recently rising since Thursday when Tyler suddenly started vomiting repeatedly and refusing to eat and then, at the emergency vets', starting having seizures. Diagnoses shifted from possible organ disease to tumors to rampant infections and finally settled on a hugely enlarged gall bladder after a sonogram that was a bear to get scheduled, what with this happening so close to the weekend and all. (Isn't that always the case?)
Tyler went into surgery Saturday afternoon and had his gall bladder removed, his intenstines flushed of the nasty mucous the gall bladder was putting out, and his liver biopsied to make sure the mucous and other things haven't sent it toward disease. We don't have the results of those or the analysis of the sickly gall bladder, but Tyler himself has bounced back from the surgery like a CHAMP, according to the doctors and we're picking him up to bring him home as soon as my dad calls me back to accompany me. (Of course, this happens when I'm pregnant as can be and can barely lift myself, much less ailing beagle boys.)
Is that his gall bladder??? EW!!! NO, NO. Just kidding. :P
Actually, I'm going to be destashing much of my beloved yarns, including that lovely mohair laceweight and much else, in order to try to put an IV into our checking account, which as of right now is looking almost as bad as Tyler did on Friday. PLEASE check back for more details soon if you're interested in helping and scoring some cool yarn. I have some nice stuff!!!
