fluoroscopy date set

Well, the date has been set. Boz gets his scope tomorrow (Thursday) at 10:00 am. It's a little scary. What if they see nothing? What if they see something, but can't do anything about it? What if he aspirates? Ugh. I just have to think about good outcomes!


Boz looks shocked that he has a full belly!

Boz has had 2 pretty good days, after a couple of bad ones. I just KNOW he has days where nothing is getting to his stomach. For the days he can't get anything into his belly, he eats a little bit, then throws it up. It's hard to watch, because he is hungry, and wants to eat, but it can't get to his stomach. When it is getting through, he can eat a lot more, and his belly fills up. It is fat and tight tonight. That makes me happy, but I worry they won't see anything when they do the fluoroscopy tomorrow if he stays "open."


Bosley stretches out in the sun while Bentley gives him a sniff.

In the mean time, he is busy digesting. He ate and ate and ate, and has been all sleepy today. He ate when I fed him around 2:00 and spent the next hour in my face, rubbing all over me and purring. If that doesn't put a smile on my face, I don't know what does!


Full belly at the heated bed!


Check out the tail!

So, fingers crossed for tomorrow!


Bentley is crossing all his paws!

P.S.
I just heard crunching in the kitchen. I went in, and there was Bosley, eating crunchies! Not just that, but he got up on the counter by himself! I guess he jumped up on the stool first. Full belly, and still wants more. That's my boy.

We hope they find some thing that is fixable. We will keep purring for Boz

Lots of purrayers going up, Jamie!! Sorry I haven't been commenting much of late, but know all of the Space Paws crew have been rooting for your little man! He so belongs in your family!

Prayers for the Boz Man! If any kitty deserves a break, this little guy does (a second break - his first was finding his way to your home). Hugs to you, Jamie!

I've got everything crossed that they find something concrete and easily fixable. I'm sending good thoughts.

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Still purrayin'!

Jamie said...

There's good news, and bad news. The good news is the medication I started him on Tuesday night seems to be really helping. He has been eating a lot, and very limited vomiting. The bad news is, the medication I started him on Tuesday night seems to be helping. In other words, there was nothing to see that we didn't already know...he has no motility in his esophagus. So, we continue with the meds, and see if we can get some weight on him.

Thanks for the update, Jamie. *sigh* I was hoping for an "ah, ha!" from the vet for sweet Boz. But it's great the meds are working. Give him (and your babes, of course!) some snorgles from his pals at Space Paws! Our healin' purrs to you, too, sweetie... I can't imagine how emotionally exhausing it's been for you... we'll keep rooting!

HubbleSpacePaws said...

oops... make that "and all your other babes."

Good thoughts and purrs to the little guy! I just wish they'd found something fixable.

Jamie said...

He has had a bad weekend. Vomited all night Thursday, until I gave him a shot of anti nausea meeds. Hasn't eaten much. Looks like he feels better today. Hopefully I can get some food in him.

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Oh, honey, I just read your comment from Sunday! How's he doing now? Hugs and healing purrs!!

Jamie said...

Boz is doing OK. He has has a couple of OK days. I promise to post this weekend. My card on my camera went bad, so I lost a lot of photos. I have some video to post, and a new card for my camera.

HubbleSpacePaws said...

No worries, hon! (But what a pain, losing the photos!) Just glad to hear the Boz is doing OK!!

Fingers all crossed for the little dude!
