Prayers for Orange Boy

Noticed a 1cm spot that was not there the day before. Looked to me like an abscess going to burst. Brought Orange Boy to see Dr Goh at Mt Pleasant this morning. Shaving revealed bluish purplish legs… infection! Something must have gone terribly wrong somewhere….

Orange Boy also has high fever and his kidneys are failing… high creatine levels and high potassium. Hopes of recovery are slim… but they will try to flush by putting him on drip and inserting catheter again.

My feeling is that there is internal urine leakage…

May I have the wisdom to do what is best for Orange Boy!

Acupuncture

Maybe around 10 needles were inserted… later heat and electric current were added. Dr Oh also suggested the use of herbs… but I will try acupuncture alone first. I know the herbs will be quite ex…

Dr Oh also noticed that OB is a bit pale. I think there is some infection! He vomitted again after eating… so I syringed some wet-food and Appelin.

Many thanks to E, M, G and Mi for sponsoring part of Orange Boy’s medical expenses!

Flap or lining…

After Jireh vet I went to Mt. Pleasant to visit Darly and bring Orange Boy for the required check-up before he can receive acupuncture treatment from Dr. Oh.

Darly is very hyper…playfully biting and scratching. Again without food and water… and in the end stitching postponed until tomorrow.

Dr Choi said he has not decided on the best method yet. He will either use a flab of skin from the leg or use the intestinal lining which has good healing properties.

Orange Boy going for Acupuncture

Waited 48 hours….no pee! Brought OB back to Jireh to put the catheter in again. The vet said it went in smoothly…meaning there is no blockage and that his inability to pass urine is lack of tone. When I asked about manual expression he said they tried but could not…

The catheter will be removed again tomorrow before bringing OB to Dr. Oh for acupuncture on Saturday.

The vet bills for OB already $869.- so far… sigh!
