Waiting is so hard......

Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and have been enjoying it.  We were having a good weekend until yesterday afternoon when our youngest Pom started to not feel well.  It is so hard when your animals don't feel well because they can't tell you. 

This morning Larry came in and woke me up around 7 a.m. and said he'd been up all night with our youngest Pom, Taz and that he had taken a turn for the worse.  I instantly got up and he was laying out in the grass and he was just shaking.  I called the vet immediately (emergency call of course due to it being Sunday) and told them his symptoms and they said how soon can you get him there.  I said we'll be there in 15 minutes so I grabbed a soft blanket, got him and wrapped him up and we were off. 

The issue he started having yesterday was he was straining to go tinkle and that's not good.  We arrived at the emergency clinic and they took him back to take x-ray and said he may have a bladder blockage.  Sure enough he had 5 stones stuck so we had to leave him there and we can't get an update until 9 pm tonight.  This day has just drug on!!!  We're hoping this procedure he had to get did the trick to clear them out.  They had to put a catheder in him, put him under and then try to flush them out and empty his bladder.  It was 4x's the normal size.  He never made a whimp all night bless his heart!!!

He is our smallest and we call him our perm-a-pup.  He is about 7-8 lbs and is just adoreable!!  He always makes us laugh and here are a few pictures to show you how darn cute our little man is :)

So we've been praying for the best all day.  If this didn't work, he will have to have surgery.  Vet bill currently paid for this mornings drop of is at $885 and could be higher from here if it didn't work.  Does anyone have pet insurance??  If so, any recommendations???

So needless to say I haven't felt like crafting today because my thoughts and prayers have been with him since 7 a.m.  A few more hours and I can hopefully get good news we can pick him up tomorrow morning bright and early.

Have a wonderful evening!!
