Well Joey has a fold in his duodenum which is preventing him from holding down his food. So I give him 3 tablespoons of canned Pinnacle holistic food with a handful of kibble. Every two to three hours. And so far today he has kept food down. But how long do I do this for? Joeys spirits are higher than mine if you can imagine.
*Sigh I just cannot imagine my life without him so I do what I can but its so hard when you are by yourself and I have no help.
I just wanted to give you an update that thankfully its not cancer. I go back in 2 weeks for a new blood test to test his enzymes in his liver. So there it is. I think its congentital and he was born with it. If there is anybody out there that might have information, please contact me at and I will read anything you can offer me.
Thank you for all of your love and support it means so much to me you just dont know!!! Joey saved my life and I want to save his!!!!
