Posted on August 25, 2015Sheldon is doing much better at this point. He has been affectionate and playful the last few days. He likes his new food but still hasn't put any of his weight back on. He's using the potty more normally but still seems to have some irritation. I'm hoping that he is going to be 100% back to his usual charming self soon. I am relieved to know that if he does re-block it isn't the end of the road thanks to everyone's sharing.

Posted on August 22, 2015This afternoon when I came home from work I found my little guy in distress once again. I assumed after my conversation with the nurse last night that I he had lost his battle. I took him in expecting the absolute worse but tonight he is doing a little better. His Vet was able to get him to clear his bladder without another costly admission. He even came home with some new prescription food samples to try to encourage him to eat again. Great news!!! He ate half a can (more total than he has in a week) and seems to be feeling like his usual cuddle bug self. I am so thankful to everyone that has helped us.

Posted on August 21, 2015Tonight Sheldon is on the decline. He has not eaten or produced more than a few drops of urine since yesterday. I spoke to a nurse at the hospital he stayed at and was told that he should have recovered fully days ago and that his situation is looking "worst case scenario". I asked what my options where and it was explained to me that he needs to be readmitted in order to clear his secondary blockage. I simply cannot afford to do this. I gave his a dose of his pain medication and am hoping if he relaxes he will clear his bladder. At this point he will likely have to be put down tomorrow night if I cannot find help.
