Stopped by the Vet this morning and Tracy is doing well. Very affectionate, nuzzly, and purring up a storm. They are going to remove the catheter this afternoon.
Sunday night I started noticing little wet spots on the carpet and furniture. I was sure it was one of the cats as it was in the back of the house which is off limits to the dog.
Yesterday morning I hear a very loud yowl coming from Tracy. I go hunt him down and he is laying somewhere he never does, and when I try and pick him up he hisses at me. Tracy *never* hisses. He then gets up and lowly lumbers off to the back of the house. I call the vet while Adam follows him. The vet says they are full up and they can see him tomorrow but if we drop him off today they will squeeze him in. Adam & I decide to drop him off. Tracy has positioned himself under the bed in a way that requires lifting the mattress and box spring to get him. Adam catches him and puts him in the carrier and off to the vet I go.
I get to the vet and they give him a very quick once over and determine his bladder is quite distended. This bumps him to the front of the line. Some pain meds and tranquilizers and a catheter later and he is ding well. X-Ray showed a urethral blockage as well as some kidney stones.The blood work shows that we got him in early enough and his kidney function is fine.
Last night he pulled his catheter out, but seems to be passing fluids ok, so they did not re-catheterize him. Hopefully he can home tonight.
For those wondering, it was 2 January 2009 (almost a full year) that Tracy first went in for his last major medical issue.

Anyone local have one they could lend us for two weeks?
I will let one of their fellow arabs sum it up:
and resting comfortably. He is in Garbo’s crate, and eating wet food (Fancy Feast). Still no bowel movement but the vet said that will probably take a few days and be diarrhea. We are still not out of the woods but signs are good.
Sue, one o the vet techs who used to work with my roommate (along with Sorren, the vet) wins the understatement of the year award when she said that Tracy really does not like to get pilled. If Sue thinks a cat is bad… then its bad.
Garbo is at the vet today… for play day 😉 With all the distraction over Tracy and all the rain she has not gotten anywhere the attention or exercise she needs. So, she gets to spend the day playing with other dogs and having a good old time. Wish I could join her. 😉
Hepburn has shown her displeasure over the upheaval causing some unplanned laundry… hopefully that was just a one time thing.
Currently, my LJ is open. I like that because I know my brother and other friends who are not LJ users read my posts. However, there are some thing which while I am willing to share with non-LJ friends, I dont really want open to the world. Given my past behavior of forgetting to change entries to be friends only before I post them, I am considering making the whole journal friends only. Given that, please take a moment to answer the following questions. Thanks!
