really, it's a long story, so here are the highlights . . . late last night, we realized that our sweet little kitten swallowed something that he shouldn't have swallowed. knowing that we had to act fast, we quickly took him to the 24 hour veterinary emergency center near our house. after 5 hours and $292, the doctors were able to retrieve what leko had swallowed, and we brought him back home with us to recuperate.
last night was stressful to say the least. ryan and i had to think quickly on our feet, and i am proud of us for working together as a team. i am even prouder of us for knowing that we both had strong gut feelings and sticking with those feelings to make a decision together (even though it was not a decision that the doctor recommended). in the end, we made the decision that was best for leko. even the doctor was amazed how well everything turned out. sometimes you just have to trust your kitty-parent instincts.
i'm happy to say that this morning leko is doing much better. today, the three of us are home trying to recover from the trauma and stress of last night (and trying to catch up on a whole lot of lost sleep). we sure do love that little guy of ours!
