View Full Version : Boone needs prayers please

11-12-2008, 02:25 PM
I had to take him to the vet today and they admitted him. I had given him and Kersey a cow femur bone and, being the competitive boy he is, he ate his too fast so that he made sure Kersey wouldn't eat it. He does not have an obstruction, thank goodness, but he's badly dehydrated. He ate too much, too fast. He has colitis or something. He is unable to hold down anything, even water comes right back out when he drinks it.

I had just gotten back from the ER myself as I have a severe case of bronchitis and I can't hardly breathe, and I get home (after only sleeping 1.5 hours last night because my lungs/chest hurt so bad and every breath made me cough and every cough felt like a knife stabbing my chest) to find that Boone had, once again, vomited in his kennel and he didn't touch the handful of food or bowl of ice cubes I gave him. He didn't even lift his head when I came to greet him, poor sick baby.

I think he'll be OK but I hope he starts being able to hold down his food so he can come home tomorrow. I miss him so bad already and so does Kersey, Quinn and my husband.

Quinn cried at the vet hospital when they took her "B" away. She cried at the door they took him through and kept yelling "B.....B......B" (she calls him B).

He's a very loved boy. It's so hard to see your kids, both skin and fur, sick :( Please pray that he'll be OK and that he'll sleep OK in his first night without us. Poor baby boy is so sick :(

Thanks for any prayers you can offer my gentle, wonderful, kind, sweet, loved Mister B.

Aww, I have tears in my eyes right now. Poor Quinn, she doesn't understand all of this.
I will be in the same situation tomorrow night without my Tazmoe home with me. :( Just keep in mind he needs to be there so he can get better. That's what I keep telling myself. I know it's so hard though.

Hugs to you, Kersey, Quinn and hubby. :)

Oh, I hope Boone will be alright!


Tell Quinn he'll be home soon enough! :)

Awwww. I hope your next post will say that Boone is back home with Quinn. (you guys too but Quinn doesn't get it). I'm so sorry you all are sick. When it rains, it pours. Prayers that everyone feels better soon. :love::love::love:

I am certainly sorry that Boone is not well and I pray that he will be better soon. Poor Quinn, she is just way too young to understand.

However, I am also concerned with your health. Bronchitis is terrible especially when you feel you can't breath. The pain of coughing is awful too. And then to come home to try to clean up after Boone and get him to the vet ..... wow, take care of yourself too Leslie, the family all needs you to be better!

Thanks everyone. Boone still wont eat. He can't come home until he eats so I'm having hubby go to vet to try to hand feed him some chicken. I hope he eats, we can't afford him staying another night. Already as it is we have no idea how we're going to pay the vet bill on top of my emergency room bill. We'll just have to figure something out, but it's $200 a night to keep him there, so we're praying that he comes home both because we miss him like heck and we're totally flat broke even before all these new bills piled on.

Missy was kind enough to take Quinn to the park with her and her two boys, Tyler and Austin. I'm so thankful for Missy! She's so wonderful! I was able to do my breathing treatment (I can't while Quinn is around because she won't let me just sit there undisturbed and do the breathing treatment) and to get some extra much needed rest.

I hope my boy comes home today :( We all miss him so bad! Quinn is just devistated without him, too. I can't tell you how many times she yells out "B....B.....B" only to discover he's still not around. I think, of the two dogs, Boone is her favorite. He plays with her more, Kersey is the lover and Boone is the player, and although she loves to cuddle, she likes even more to play.

Poor Boone, and poor you and Quinn! Tell Quinn that B is at the doggie hospital, and he will come back home as soon as he can, okay? Breathe, momma, breathe!

I'm sending thoughts and prayers out to all of you. It sounds like you can really use them. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}:)

Eat Boone, eat!! :love:

Leslie, PM your address. I'd like to help. :)

Boone's home!!! Boone's home!!! We couldn't be happier with our (rather skinny) little boy. He looks great, becides being on the thin side from this whole ordeal. He's pretty happy too because he gets to eat rice and rotisery chicken for a few days, with a tad bit of kibble mixed in. He was just starving when he came home. He ate quite a bit of the chicken we bought him for daddy at the vet and sofar he's kept everything down. We're hoping he continues to do well and maybe gain a few of his pounds back in time. He lost a total of 10 pounds since we last had him weighed.

Here are a few pictures of my stunningly handsome boy. I think he's so pretty, but I'm quite biased :) :love::love::love:

Thank you for the prayers everyone! Thank you to Missy (Sirrahsim) for taking Quinn out for a few hours today to the park and then to McDonalds with her boys so I could rest and take my breathing treatement. How incredibly thoughtful it was of her and I'm still SO sad she's moving to Germany :( Quinn had a blast and had an "insta-sleep" nap when she got home from having a blast with Missy and her boys. She's been feeling neglected the last couple days since I can't even sit outside with her because that requires excersise. I hope by tomorrow I will be well enough to spend some time outside in the backyard with Quinn.

Thanks again for the prayers and well wishes. It's good to have my family whole again. Boone is my best boy.

Thank goodness Boone is home! Feel better handsome boy.:)

11-13-2008, 10:56 PM
Welcome Home Boone!! Now Quinn will be a happy little girl to see her B again. :)

I hope you and Boone are taking it easy together so you can both be good and healthy here soon. :D

I am so glad to hear that Boone is home and on the mend. I think (hope) that will help everyone feel better quickly.

Missy is moving to Germany? I must have missed that.

Thanks for the lovely pictures of handsome B!
I'm so thrilled he's back in your loving arms and recovering!
Hope you feel better too, Leslie, so you can spend some time with Quinn.

Lots of smoochies to the gang of you! :love:

Its so wonderful to see that Boone is now home where he belongs! I hadn't seen this thread until now, and I am very happy to find everything is fine.

Now that he is better, its your job to rest up and start feeling better yourself!
{{Sending healing vibes hoping you get well soon.}}

Welcome home, Boone! We missed you! :love:
