I just got back from the vet, they suspect he has a Traumatic Diaphragmatic Hernia. There is no coming back from this injury folks. The surgery is expensive, it is arduous, the recovery rate is months and “usually” a kitten doesn’t make it off the table. My “accident” has caused his bowel to be pushed into his chest- or so they suspect. They suspect this type of injury based on his inappetence and fever (104). He wouldn’t eat anything they offered him. He has been given pain meds, and a shot and he is on 48 hour watch. I need him to eat, to drink and for his fever to go down. Any of these signs would cancel out what they now suspect might be wrong with him.
Please pray for Axle- he really needs candles going and prayers flying- This is the kitty abandoned with his sister in a van for five days no food and no water. Pray that he doesn’t have this horrible injury. I will know by Monday. If he doesn’t improve-I am sad to report he’ll have a date to keep with an angel.
