Gemini reporting: I refuse to go out traveling so that other people can find me, especially when I have nursing duties! And I have to fight that little cat for food and a space on the bed!
Cheysuli went back in. They did some barium x-rays to make anything that doesn’t show up on a normal x-ray show up. They found four little disk shapes in her tummy that the barium wouldn’t go through so they thought AHA! Obstruction. So they did surgery. The found four of her food kibbles in her belly. Not digested and they had some fur around them. They don’t understand. They are doing a biopsy on the mucosa of her tummy, although the vet who did the surgery felt around and there was no wall thickening on her tummy or anywhere in her intestinal tract. The barium passed normally through out all of that.
Anyway, Cheysuli is now convulescing in the back room and Ichiro is out and about with me. I do not like this change at all. Momma is going to sleep in the back room with her so that she can keep an eye on her tonight. Tomorrow she goes back to the vet to be checked over and they will attempt to get her to eat or force feed her and see if the food stays down NOW. Maybe it was the fur. Momma wondered if perhaps Cheysuli had eaten some kibble out of one of my furballs?
The biopsy will check for heliobacter pylori, which in humans causes ulcers and for IBD and stuff like that. At this point, this is the most likely thing. Momma was so happy to think yeah! They found something and we can fix it but now she is frustrated again. Chey is also frustrating the docs as well. So maybe this week is creative What’s Wrong with Chey Friday and perhaps I will give an award for the most interesting thing.
Oh and Momma did ask, “Could Chey just not be able to stomach the kit?” The vet said well if she’s a cat to hold on to her frustration and not stomach the kit, we wouldn’t see it just yet–that would be weeks down the road. If she was just really angry and it was immediate, then we should have seen this on Monday. So she doesn’t think that it’s really that.
