sea4th Posted June 15, 2007 Report Share Posted June 15, 2007 The vet just had her assistant call me, while she had Obi on the operating table. Things looked grim. He had about a 20 per cent chance of survival. The sutures had opened. Some of the intestine was absessed, and his entire abdominal cavity would had to have been cleaned. Even with the 20 per cent chance of survival of this surgery, there was a risk, since they didn't know why the sutures didn't hold in the first place, of something going wrong again. They could have removed 2/3 of his small intestine, which sounds like it would not have been a pleasant way of living for the rest of his life. So I made the decision to say good bye to Obi. I think as I write this, Obi is coming to the Bridge. Rest in peace, my sweet boy. I hate life sometimes. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
