Skip Update

The good news is that we cleared Skip's bottom blockage Saturday night. The bad news is that there seems to be a blockage further up that we can't get to. He hasn't been to the toilet since we unblocked him and his tummy keeps getting bigger and lumpier as he is still making poo but it can't go anywhere :(

So we took him to the vet tonight and he is staying overnight. In the morning they will anaesthetise him and try to ease the poo down through his colon and out the other end. It's a risky procedure as his colon could rupture which would be fatal. Even if we get him home tomorrow the next few days would be critical as we wait to see if he becomes ill from peritonitis caused by a rupture.

So please please keep him in your thoughts. If anyone can do this it's Sandra our wonderful vet. If anyone can survive this is Super Skip. The odds are against him but then they always have been and it hasn't stopped him so far.

I won't even try to tell you how I feel about this. He's my world and I adore him. He has to be ok :(
