Spent the Day in the ER

Rod: Just got home from a trip to the ER. I have continued vomiting for the past 3 days so the vet sent Mom and me to the ER for an ultrasound. I'm pooping. Just puking, too. Ultrasound is normal. The specialists think I have Irritable Bowel Disorder (kind of like humans and Irritable Bowel Syndrome). I have to eat low residue food and take some anti vomiting medication. And hopefully, cross your fingers... that IS it and Mom can stop taking me to see those vets. It's cost 1200 bucks so far too... so I know it isn't cheap. Thank goodness she loves me and does anything for me that I need.
Jimmy: Rod came home smelling weird. So, now I hiss at him again.

So sorry to hear you're feeling poorly. We'll think good "kitty thoughts" for you.

We are sending extra purrs and nuzzles too. Hope you feel better soon, Rod.

Ew, poor you. I hate puking but it happens to the best of us. Hope the doc can make it all better.

Hope you get to feeling better Rod. And Shadow always hisses at us for no reason. At least Jimmy had a reason. ~Merlin, Shadow, Ko Ko

Sorry to hear you're sick, maybe they should check you for alergies. My sisfur is alergic to some stuff in commercial food so mine mommy has to be careful what she feeds her. She used to barf alla time, not so much anymore. Now my obsession with licking the fur off my front paws is a whole 'nother subject.
