Subject: Teddy Bear Had Surgery

Teddy Bear, whom I wrote about with the bladder infections, had
surgery today. I'm extremely worried about him. Suregey went very
well and he came out of anistetic just fine and was getting around
eating, drinking just fine. Mid afternoon he started passing very
watery stools with some blood in them. My vet watched him and he
continued to eat and drink but wastn't as active. She didn't think
there was anything to worry about and let him come home so I would be
around to keep an eye on him. She told me what to watch for but I'm
worried. She thinks it is due to all of the stress he has been
through. He is passing a little more blood and some mucous. He is
drinking and I can get him to eat some. He moves around enough to
drink and go potty. He's pretty punk though.
His left adrenal was "popped right out" Protate was swollen also.
At this point I'm not sure he will make it through the night. I
realize this is choppy as I'm trying to cram it all together in as
short a post as possible. He has been given fluids and has had some
Kaopectate. I give pedialyte also. Mostly I try to let him rest.
anything I should try? Let me know. Say a prayer for him. He is in
pretty tough shape.
Thank You
