It's been a very difficult and harrowing couple of days for my poor Indiana, but I first want to say that about an hour ago he ate a little bit on his own for the first time in days. This is positive news.
Indy has been given an initial diagnosis of mega-colon, but the vet took blood and feces samples today to rule out other diseases/conditions. She gave Indy fluids to help him feel better, because he's had chronic diarrhea, and we have medicine he is taking for his GI symptoms.
Basically, part of his colon is not functioning properly; it was evident from his x-ray, but he did pass the feces that was sitting in his colon, thank goodness. He is feeling noticeably better tonight, and is resting on the pet heating pad right above my head.
I'll keep you posted as I find out more. I want to thank you for the power of the paw rosies for his page, the comments and p-mails, and positive thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate them. It helps so much to know you are pulling for my baby.
