Update:

Our recovery is going very well! No bleeding or sepsis issues. No vomiting or diarrhea.

The best thing is that we've managed her pain well. She's been eating yesterday and today with no vomiting!!! She did pass a little normal stool this morning!

I can't believe how well she's doing! A few more days and I'll feel much better.

I just went through this with Newton about 2-3 months ago, tennis ball and hose........(long story) the whole time I was thanking my lucky stars I worked for such a wonderful clinic !

I am glad Scram is on the mend and doing so well. Never an easy thing to watch and I was kicked out of surgery myself when they were working on Newty as I was in the way of monitoring and trying to do it all myself.

Hope everything is still going well............bad dogs, bad bad dogs.

Scram is doing fantastic!

I made an error before - She actually had two incisions to the stomach and two to the small intestine. Yesterday she had her first "full" bowl movement and it was perfect! No vomiting, no diarrhea!!!

She's definitely hungry though. We couldn't feed her too much not only to give the incisions time to heal but also because we couldn't stretch her stomach. She's had frequent small gruel meals. Good thing she wasn't at trial weight or we could be in trouble.

Hopefully another few days and we'll kick up the food!

Yay Scram! I am so lucky thus far that my dog's soccer-ball eating hasn't resulted in surgery. I am so retentive about it but then he'll find a scrap he buried long long ago... ugh. I'm glad YOU and Scram are both feeling better, you can sleep at night now!
