Ranger & MIL Update

The vet called with an update. They are continuing Ranger on IV fluids & pain meds. He seems to be doing better. He drank small amounts during the night and they observed no vomiting. This morning they offered him bland food which he ate..albeit slowly. Now they are watching him to see if he will vomit the food. Then the watch to see if he passes anything in his stool.

If he holds the food down and doesn't vomit again today then he should be able to come home this evening.

So it is just a waiting game now...

On a good note: Johns mother is doing better. She is talking again and seems to have perked up a bit. Enough to be complaining to the nurses about a myriad of things. YEAH! Considering she was completely unresponsive the day before yesterday - this is a GOOD THING!

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and well wishes.

Glad to hear the good news! It's great when surgery isn't needed-why do dogs eat certain things I just don't know?
