Well Satchel had surgery today. He had some sort of twine or thick brown string that had tied off his intestines near the top and then gone down through as his body tried to digest it. The vet said she did her best and she thinks she got all the string out and didn't nick anything while she was doing it but we won't know if he's going to be OK for about three days. I'm bringing him home tonight and then he's going back to the vet tomorrow so he can be under constant supervision for the first 24 hours. I can't figure out what he might have eaten. I seriously have no idea. I've looked all around the house. I don't use twine for anything. There was some wrapped around the Christmas tree when we brought it home, but it's all in the basement which he doesn't have access to. I just want my baby to be OK.
