We went up to visit tonight- didn't get a good photo since it was just me and the crazy four year old (who did get a nice picture of my butt and my legs, but not of the kitten!).
Neala's temp is GOOD as of right now. It is 101.5 or so, which is normal for a cat. They took her off of the external heating system about half an hour before I visited. She FELT normal, which is so much more important to me. You can feel when a Sphynx is doing very badly- they feel cool and abnormal once you are used to the warmth of their skin.
The staff was very sweet- they mentioned that she looks completely different from last night. She is much quieter tonight then she was last night, but that is because she's struggling to breathe due to that food sitting on her lungs. The vet who saw her today tried to pass a tube down her esophagus to draw some of it off of her lungs, but she was not interested in allowing this to happen. Poor girl- it would have relieved so much of that labored breathing, I am sure!
To ensure people understand- the kitten food was IN her esophagus, but it had formed into a pocket that was then pushing into her lungs, making it hard to breathe. She did not have kitten food in her lungs- her esophagus had ballooned out from the kitten food and was taking up space her lungs needed to fill with air.
She just cuddled, for the most part. She doesn't have the energy to do anything else.
But she's fighting this- she wants to go home safe and sound as much as we want her to...
Update tomorrow morning- promise!
