A New YEAR 2023

Well it has been a long last day since I wrote my last post.

My poor Alvin threw up at 10:30 yesterday morning. I went to the Vet Clinic around noon to pick up the food supplement and had wanted to speak to his Doctor but she was out for lunch so I asked the staff to have her call me and explained why. At home I patiently waited for her to call. I had been counting down the time since Alvin threw up last so that I could try to give him some food. Well that time didn’t arrive as he threw up at 4:30 pm and not once but twice. After I cleaned things up and got him settled onto the sofa, I called but his Doctor was already gone for day. Instead of counting dix hours without vomiting, we ended up going to sleep on the sofa. He woke up at 3:00 am and outside he peed and pooped and then back to sofa.

The next time he woke up was 5:30 am and jumped off the sofa and proceeded to the kitchen where he wretched a yellow bile and then whitish foam onto the floor. My heart crashed to the floor. I held him up as he was slightly wobbly. After cleaning things up and getting the boy comfortable again, we were back to the sofa.

I waited for some time before calling the vet. Luckily I was able to speak to her and because I did not have a way to bring Alvin to her, she stopped by to give him an injection to stop him from vomiting. We had a good conversation and both hope the results from the poop sample show something wrong that is treatable. She also said the injection would last gor 24 hours and that I could try and give him a small amount of chicken and rice. So after the time had elapsed I brought him the food, he wasn’t interested. He did eat a couple of tiny amounts from my hand. That was it. He is resting now. I will keep trying. At least he has not thrown up.

I am so grateful that I am on vacation as I cannot imagine him being alone.

Almost time to see if he will eat. I am trying to remain positive throughout this…..

I hope that you are having a good day and please keep Alvin in your thoughts and prayers.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus, possibilities and coffee.

Always, Carol&Alvin
