Well, Toe Man is home!!! It is so exciting. My husband and I went to the vet at around 9:30 this morning to check on him. They had already taken his cath out. So I snatched him up and held him and he lay his kitty head on my shoulder. It was the first time I have held him since last Sunday. It sure felt good to both of us.
The vet had already left for his other hospital but had left work that when/if Toe tinkled he could go home. So while Juan was holding him, I got his litter box our and dug through it to see the bottom of it and low and behold-------------TINKLE WAS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN!!
I called the vet tech out and the vet's mom and showed them the tinkle. They were as excited as I was.... Juan said "Jennifer, wash your finger off"............
But he was grinning like a stuck pig.
So we packed Toe up with feeding instructions and brought him home. He has tinkled three times since coming home. He like his litter box. He just keeps walking around the house. Juan and I are cooking portchops outside to celebrate with margaritas. We are both home tonight with Toe....!
What a happy day!!!
Toe looked very relieved to have his neck cone removed too. We had been calling him a little cone head kitty.......hehe
He looks good. The vet's mom told me her son told her how close Toe was to death. She said he mentioned to her that the quality of toe's hair had already had that dead feel. Remember me mentioning that??? He was nearly comotose 8 days ago......
The vet performed a miracle. Also, he had them pass along the message to me that he would give me a 10 percent discount on all shots for the babies. I told them in March I have 14 that will need them. Ten are updated already as of a few days ago.
Also for all the antibiotics, the 8 day hospital stay and all the cath stuff and everything else he did for Toe, the uninalysis, the blood work, the xrays....
The total cost was only $314.00. He is a wonderful vet and is not trying to rip people off. He gives quality care and with my discount due to the amt of animals I have I am in hog heaven... He knows based on my purchases I take care of them and he knows it can be a struggle and he is willing to help me so they will always be healthy.
A very happy ending and a nice new healthy beginning for my little cone head kitty..... He has a long life ahead of him!
Jenn and Toe.
p.s. I will try and take a homecoming pic later but right now, got to make a salad..... Juan is grilling outside. Thank you all for the prayers. They worked.. As did that peepee dance....... He might not have peed without it!!!
