Uncle MaxMaxx Back in the Hospital
|Hello Everyone--Tommy here. It's been a knock you back on your paws couple of days here. I brought my baby big boy MaxMaxx home Tuesday night. He was so glad to be home--ate, drank, tinkled, loved on me, bopped everybody else. On Wednesday morning, he was SO ,much like himself--he jumped on my bed that morning, to give me the head bonks and cuddles I'd missed. Purred, did his figure 8's thru my legs as I got ready for the day. By the time I went to work--everybody was in their spots for their day long naps. Although I knew that was normal, I always had a different 'vibe' this go round with MaxMaxx.|
The doctor's office called to check on MaxMaxx too. He had done wonderfully up till then. However, I think we all kinda knew 'something'. Long story short, when I got home from work, Max didn't come to great me. That was very odd. I went looking and found him stretched out sleep under my bed. I called his name, and his tail swished. My doc's office was closed by then, otherwise he was going then--just to be sure. I decided I was taking him Thursday morning. If all stayed calm we'd be OK.
Wrong. I heard MaxMaxx cry. I woke all the way up. 12:45 AM. I never heard my baby cry like that. NEVER. He was in by litter boxes. He'd try to go. The cries. There was an emergency clinic his doctor referred Got the directions. Through on some clothes--my hair was in curlers--and I took them down. Somehow I got MaxMaxx in carrier and off we went. A trip that should have been 15 minutes turned into longer---why? I got lost. I went how the directions told me--no clinic. Max was screaming and it's 1:30 AM on dark deserted streets.
I called the clinic number. Sweet Lauren gave me directions. I found out later they had MOVED. At the clinic, I am a basket case. Max is crying, panting--in such pain.I prayed and prayed. Telling Satan to get out of my cat--he can't have him." I held MaxMaxx close while they did work up etc. Within in a few minutes, MaxMaxx was sedated and unblocked. The vet on duty--a very nice woman, suggested the surgery, my regular vet spoke off. I left Max resting at the clinic. I got home at 3 AM.
I picked up MaxMaxx Thursday afternoon and he's back at his regular doctor's office. The doctor will talk to me about the surgery. Neither Max nor I can go thru this and both be scared all the time. I am not ready to lose my baby.
Depending on the cost of Max's care, I may need to do something I've never had to do is ask for donations. I will cross that bridge when I come to it--because I know God does provide.
In the meantime, please pray for my MaxMaxx and our family.
Tommy, Noir, Mommy, Earl Gray, Peyton and Mooch
***Update*** MaxMaxx has been eating well at the hospital. I will visit him tomorrow and speak to the Doctor on Monday about the possible surgery. All his other vitals are great. Max does not have a fever--just this pesky block thing going on. Thank everyone SO much for prayers, purrs and encouragement. :)
