Good news! Glad to hear Cleo is getting a bit better. I will say a prayer for her and your Mom.
Thanks, she is a little better, but then she has stretches where she isn’t eating and no output. For too long. The problem now I believe is that the area she had surgery on needs to heal but it is an area in her gi tract that needs to be working pretty much all the time. And the two things are getting in the way of each other.
She just needs prayer that she can make it through the recovery process and get that area healed so her eating and drinking can get back to normal and (I believe) not be as painful as it might be passing her fecal pellets out.
Nobody has given up, Cleo hasn’t given up, she just isn’t normal and right now not eating or pooping for 24 hours or so is very bad for her. She needs to be going pretty much like a few hours after eating meals/munching hay for awhile.
