      >>Hi everyone,
      >> I have sent so many messages about Pebbles the past few days, I feel
      >>as if I am taking over the lists. But I am very worried. I have lost faith
      >>in vets and doctors through my experiences. So whilst Pebbles' care at the
      >>emergency hospital may be excellent, I am still nervous.
      >> I have said all along that Pebbles has fur balls in her system. They
      >>told me the Xrays were clear, but showed a few gassy patches which could
      be
      >>furballs. However, after palpating her belly they said she did not have
      >>much pain, so they thought it was her hyperthyroidism and they began
      >>neo-mercazol for her thyroid.
      >> Today when I rang they said that Pebbles vomited a big furball
      >>overnight. I am not convinced her lack of appetite is from her
      >>hyperthyroidism.
      >> On Thursday morning, after vomiting Wednesday night and having
      >>diarrhea, and vomiting again on Thursday morning, I did not feed her and
      >>took her straight to the idiot vet. Then the incident with the thermometer
      >>and the sedation to remove the thermometer from her rectum. Sedation can
      >>cause loss of appetite. She would not eat on Thursday. She ate some on
      >>Friday morning.
      >> Tonight I rang the hospital to go and see Pebbles. They said I
      >>couldn't see her because they were so busy because it was Christmas. I
      >>persisted and they said I could go at midnight when it might be quieter. I
      >>think they thought I would say it was too late. I said okay. They said to
      >>ring before I go. I will just go because then they may say they are busy
      >>again.
      >> They said the key to Pebbles' recovery is for her to eat. She did not
      >>vomit or have diarrhea yesterday. They started the thyroid medication last
      >>night. She vomited twice and produced a big furball.
      >> They said because she vomited last night twice they are not feeding
      >>her for twelve hours to rest her system. They had syringe fed her last
      >>night.
      >> I feel that the chances of Pebbles eating at the hospital are slim.
      >> I need feedback from you all on these questions and any more I should
      >>ask.
      >>- Are they giving her any nausea medication and why not?
      >>- Is she in any danger if she came home, in order to see if she will eat
      at
      >>home?
      >>I will take her straight back in if she worsens or will not eat.
      >>- What care is she getting there that I cannot give at home?
      >>- Are they going to do further tests, or is it a wait and see if she will
      >>eat. They said they didn't want to let her come home until she started
      >>eating.
      >>- What is their diagnosis?
      >> I am worried because she really has not eaten for five days now. They
      >>said IV fluids replenish her electrolytes and she is in no danger of fatty
      >>liver disease from not eating. I am going crazy with worry. If anyone is
      up
      >>late there, could they please reply. It is nearly 8.00pm here Christmas
      >>night. I leave for the emergency hospital in three hours. (I know
      >>California time is 17 hours (approximately) behind, so that would make it
      >>3.00am Christmas morning as I am writing this message.)
      >>Love, Voula and Pebbles and Lucy and my Beautiful Angel Sachie.
