So glad to hear Bobby is doing better....hope he's home, and feeling better by now! I too, had no idea about the sugar free gum!!! We have it here all the time! Not to long ago, I noticed Chris had a wad of gum laying on the coffee table beside his chair. Next thing I know, I'm cutting it out of Boo's fur around her mouth, and saying to Chris, "This is why mother's teach children then when gum comes out of their mouth, it goes directly into the garbage!!!!" I had no idea the danger was FAR worse then gum in the hair!!!! Me and Chris will be having another talk.....

Bob is home. We got in with him around 7:30 last night. He was VERY happy to see mommy (lots of kisses), and the second we got into the car, he crashed and slept all night They said he would, not only because he was feeling badly, but because they are so bustling around there with lights on 24/7. The only other issue was where they took out his IV, it kept bleeding. We had to keep a pressure bandage on it for a few hours, wound pretty tight. Since his clotting agents were really low, it was taking a bit longer to heal. His forearms are shaved down to the skin (I think they had had to IV him in each one, switching out at some point), and the one that kept bleeding is very bruised under the skin.

My boy is sleeping again with his brother, Casey the Maltese.

Oh, what a sweet picture! Sounds like he's on the mend and good that he's getting lots of sleep.

The picture of Bobby at home has made my day! I have noticed for me, at first although I am excited, I am really wound up and so hyper-alert when I bring one of my pups back from a sickness or operation, but after awhile I feel my self breath a sigh of relief as the feeling of all is well comes back. I hope your there.

As a suggestion please go over to all the areas where Bobby might run or sniff outside and make for sure there is nothing unusual...look for mouse or rat bait this is the time of year people use it, and are not careful with the handling of it, sometimes they are little pellets pick anything like that up and throw it away...the baits are very attractive to our dogs. You will probably never know what it was but it's always good to be on the safe side.

I know my husband went over the yard with a fine-toothed comb yesterday. Though I HATE not knowing how this all happened, the vet is also strongly looking at the fact that he was neutered just three weeks ago and this could be as a result of the anesthesia. This episode seems to fit within the window of that having happened. I'm also VERY glad I said yes to the blood work before that surgery as it wasn't necessary and cost another $70 or so. It gave us a base line to see where he was prior to surgery and where he was Thursday night. Knowing all of this, it's very possible it was from that.

Another pic showing he feels better. Certainly not a "Hallmark moment," but it shows he's feeling more comfortable.

Thanks, Eddie. Bobby says WOOF to his brother.

Now I can hardly wait to give him a bath. He smells funky and has unrecognizable sticky stuff on him from the hospital.
