Poochie Prayer Request

Poor little Buckley (being 50 lbs) has not been able to keep anything down since Sunday night. Yeah 5 days ago. Husbandy took him to the vet on Wednesday and they gave us some meds to make sure his GI was functioning the way it should. He still didn't keep anything down.

I took him back in yesterday and they decided to do a Barium test so that if anything were blocked they could find it. They did an xray at 3:30 and another at 5:30. I went back to the vet at 5:30 to pick him up and bring him back in the morning. Or so I thought. They found a mass in his stomach that looked like a sponge or towel. Now, Buckley has been known to eat a towel... I wouldn't put it past him. So, at 6:00 they did a surgery to see what it was. I was relieved that the problem had been found and resolution was close. But... all they found was the rice we have been feeding him... no towel, no sponge, no nothing. So, my poor little pooch is still at the vet and will stay there until at least Monday. So that they can watch him closer.

I know its for the best, but its really quiet around here without him and I am one torn up momma. It breaks my heart that we don't know what is wrong and don't know what to do to fix it. I just want him to feel better and be at home. Please say a little prayer for my Buckley. I need him home pretty bad... and so does his Daddy.
