We're sending all the good thoughts we can to you and Bentley.

Please do keep us posted.

Carol, Emily, & Eddie



>>Bentley is at the vet right now...
>>
>>He ate a piece of ribbon from a balloon at some point late Sunday/early Monday morning...he got up a wad of it yesterday afternoon, which normally means we are home free...but then later last night he vomited up foam with blood in it...up until then he was vomiting liquid with blood...(which I had found in a few piles leading up to the wad of ribbon)
>>
>>The foam coming up hours after the ribbon, along with the grumpiness he started exhibiting toward Fin and Alastair got me worried, and at 1:30am I segregated him so I could monitor him a little more closely...he started hiding, and stopped eating and drinking but when he did not use the brandy new fresh litter box I knew something was really wrong...(he is the cat who MUST pee in fresh litter)
>>
>>So this morning we were at the vet, after some x-rays that were inconclusive we kept him there to do a Barium series...the vet said his intestine was not like an accordian as he would expect if there were more ribbon filtering through, but there seemed to be a gas pocket...the barium will let us know if there is in fact an obstruction and will also coat his stomach in the event his did get everything up and is just really irritated.
>>
>>Bentely did have emergency surgery a few years ago when he ate a wad of thread...so...this is a road we have travelled before...he did not vomit as excessively and frequently as he did that last time, is not running a fever, and is let us handle and hold him more...but he is lethargic and I know he is just "not right"...
>>
>>Please keep him in your thoughts...hope we can avoid surgery this time...I will keep you posted...
