Wow. It's been a long 24 hours since I got bored and decided to open daddy's backpack and look for munchies in it! For some reason, mom freaked out when she saw what I had been chewing on. She crawled around on the floor picking up little peices of cardboard and pills and saying "Oh God, how many were there?" I didn't understand why she was so upset. I went into my crate. Then she found some pills, looked at some teeny tiny writing on them, and called the vet. Then she called another phone number, and talked to someone for about 10 minutes. Then she and daddy got out a brown plastic bottle and measured out some clear stuff that looked like water. It smelled really bad though. Then daddy held my mouth open and mommy poured that awful stuff down my throat! Daddy held my mouth shut and mommy rubbed my throat. I coughed and some of the nasty stuff sprayed out of my nose. Then I threw up. The wierd thing is, mommy and daddy seemed glad that I threw up! They even looked closely at the puke, and daddy put it in a plastic container! How wierd is that!?
Well, I see that my mom kept my blog updated, and I am really touched to see the prayers and good thoughts from my blog buddies! I had lots of people praying and pulling for me, and it really helped! I was even a good patient and I drank the charcoal on my own - the staff at the emergency animal clinic couldn't believe it!
Those nice people at the emergency animal clinic did something really wierd - they shaved part of my leg! See? They put something called a catheter in my leg, it hurt! But they gave me medicine that helped me feel much better. Mommy and daddy came in to see me real quick before they left, and they were trying to act like they were okay, but I could tell they were worried. So I reached out with my paw and touched each of their hands to let them know that I would be okay.
Well, I'm home and resting now. Mommy, daddy and I all took a nice nap together on the floor. I went in my cage, but then I came out and laid down in mommy's lap, and then they both cuddled with me and we slept for about two hours. Here I am resting comfortably...see? All better!
