Respiratory distress

Yuki went for surgery today and when they administered a mild sedative to prep him for surgery, he went into acute respiratory distress. They had to abort the surgery and work to bring him back around. They have him stable for now and we'll know more soon. Since the stones are fairly large, there is at least no chance of them lodging and causing an obstruction.

He is just too old at this time and his heart disease is too advanced to take having the procedure done again.

Thanks Hobo. We are still waiting to hear back, they wanted to monitor him for 30 minutes to see if he normalized. He was stable but breathing very heavy. The waiting is killing us.

Yuki is still having some difficulty breathing so they are taking him down for a chest x-ray to see if they can determine the cause. I can't imagine what the poor guy is thinking of all this. I hope he can come home soon.

He can come home in a few hours. X-rays didn't show any significant signs of heart failure. It was the first bit of good news all day!

We are so sorry for what happened to Yuki this morning but relieved to hear that they said he could go home & the x-rays didn't show anything wrong with his heart. You & your beloved Yuki are in our thoughts & prayers.

Love & Hugs for All,
KJ, Rain & Teresa
