ER visit but I'm fine

Mom rushed me to the ER today because I was a wee bit naughty and pulled out my feeding tube :(

She got me there in just over an hour from the removal but it was too late for them to replace it. To put a new one in now will require another surgery. The good news is, I am still eating pretty well. The bad news is, if it comes that I need it again I will have to go through the operation again.

I wanted it out anyway so there mom! I always get my way. BOL

There is a couple things we need to watch for and one is an obstruction from the piece of tube still in the stomach (it should pass naturally) and the other is the stomach wall leaking. If either of these occur I have to go back to the vet but she feels it should actually heal OK on its own.

I told mom I was just making her weekend a little more pawciting!

Muah!
Mia

Hope you don't have to have the tube put back in precious! Don't think Mom needs any more excitement! Be good little one.

Aw, Mia, are you sure that was a good idea? I hope you'll keep eating, and get rid of that leftovfur tube in your tummy without hurting yourself. Be a good gurl!

That was scary - but if you keep eating good (we pray for it) you will not need a new feeding tube
Our hope is that the rest of the tub passes out easily
that was already too much excitment for one day
You and Chester are in our daily prayers
love and hugs from all of us

Thanks for the pawrayers! I still seem fine today so mom is hoping the stomach wall is healing nicely.

Chester isn't doing as well but he is still hanging in there. :(

Muah!

How scary for your mom! We can imagine how she felt. Glad that everything is still going okay and praying the stomach wall will heal nicely & of course you can get rid of that tube inside quickly! Thinking of you & Chester & sending lots of prayers & love.
