Another Skip Update

Skip got on well at the vets today :) They've managed to pretty much empty him out and his tummy is back to normal size! It's so good to have him home. He's supposed to be sore and resting but nobody told him! He has been bouncing round the cage, digging up scraps of dried food left over from Quest and Tim's dinner last night and stuffing his face. He really is bloody amazing!

We're not out of the woods yet. There's still a chance that something ruptured and he'll die of peritonitis in the next few days. And I don't know if having been so full will have stretched his colon further up and whether he'll go on to have worse problems with his pooing that we won't be able to solve cos they're higher up. Only time will tell really whether he can make a full recovery from this.
For now I'm just SO glad to have him home and looking well.
