Goose Update

Hello Gooses Friends.

I know that some of you know that Goose is very sick.  I thought I would give you an update on him.

On Friday when I picked him up from Bert's place Bert's Vicki told me that in the afternoon he had thrown up his breakfast and it had grass in it and then later on when he went to poop there was blood.  Of course when I picked him up he was happy to see me, but not quiet himself.  I called his doctor but Dr. Eddie had went out of town for the holiday.  The vet tech talked to me and recommended some things for me to do.  When we got home Goose tried to be himself but just could not get it together. 

For the most part he was in and out of the house, eventually mostly staying outside.  Most of you know that Goose does not like to be in the rain.  Friday evening and Saturday morning it rained off and on and Goose would just lay outside in the grass even while it rained.

In the morning he was not better and since our vet was out of town Bert's Vicki suggest a place to go, Brookside Animal Hospital.  I took him there right away and they were very kind and took him right in.  After hours and hours of test and prodding, test results and all that it was decided that Goose would stay at the Animal Hospital until Tuesday when we will see how he is doing and where to go from there.  He is bleeding internally and the blood is coming out his pooper shooter.  Vickie said I should spare you the photo of the exam room, but trust me it was terrible. 

I have every confidence that he will get better, at least that is what I hope for and he will return to his quality of life that we both enjoy together.  It's just hard to see him this way and it's hard to not have him with me.  But like Gooses tag says in the last photo I took of him (above) at the hospital, we have seen beautiful.  Beautiful in the care of the staff at the Animal Hospital, beautiful in a great friend (Vickie) who came to the hospital to offer comfort for both of us, beautiful in all of you who have emailed, Facebooked and called us, and beautiful in my boy who through all this has done nothing but shown concern for me.  And I know that we will see beautiful again when this is all over.

Thank you all so very very much.  Your thoughts, prayers and good vibes mean more than we can say.
Blessings,
Michelle

  8. Dear Michelle, I'm so glad you got him in as quickly as you did. I know from first hand experience how awful it is when our beloved companions are shootin out blood instead of poop. My Sadie had this twice. Praying that the vets have wisdom to treat him correctly and that you have peace walking through this. So glad Vicki was with you. I know how terrifying it can be.
    Love, Noreen

  14. Praying here that they will identify the source of the bleeding and be able to fix whatever is wrong. Take care of yourself, Michelle. It is so very hard to see our pets sick and not be able to explain everything to them. Prayers are with both you and with Goose, and for the team at the hospital.

  62. Prayers for a speedy recovery for Goose. And prayers for peace and comfort to his mom. As important as it is for a fur kid to be where the medicine and doctors are, it makes it harder for the human. Vet hospitals should have visitor pull out chairs like human hospitals do so pet parents can stay overnight with their kids.
    We hope you get fantastic news that Goose is healing and can come home soon.

  116. Hey, Goose! We're easing back in as mama's infirmities allow, but we just had to say we're keeping our paws crossed for your speedy recovery. Did you eat something that hurt your insides? Abby had a nice emergency visit to the vet this week; she got into some adhesive tape and stretch bandages. Fortunately, mama noticed her chomping so she just had to spend a few hours at the vet puking her guts out, but no surgery. She's ok now. We're sure praying you'll be ok, too. Hugs to you and your mom.
