Fighting for life

Sprocket was rushed to the vets on wednesday after collapsing.
His bladder was blocked. The vets needed to put a catheter in to drain off some urine, they wanted to do this with out sedating him as this could cause his kidneys to fail, but in the end they had no choice but to sedate him. There was a lot of blood in his water which was caused by stones in his bladder which have damaged the inside.
Tests have confirmed he has substanial damage to his kidneys.
He is very ill and fighting for life.
I have been in touch with the vets twice a day and up till now there there has been no change, this morning I was told he had eaten the food that was put in over night. He is progressing very slowly and the vets are pleased with the way he is going, but it is still early days.
He is a fighter and has survived a virus that attacked his heart but left him on heart tablets. I am sure he will fight this with all his might.
I have asked his mom Snuffles to look over him, which i am sure she is doing.
Sprocket, stay strong and keep fighting, your family love you, miss you and want you home.
