Still not eating

Ki had exploratory surgery last night, but they found no obstruction in his GI tract. They did find a calcified nodule in free-floating in his abdomen, and removed it. It's about the size of a large lima bean. Ir certainly could have made him uncomfortable.

He wasn't hungry when they fed him this morning. We went over to visit him around 1pm. I took a can of tuna to see if that would entice him. He completely refused it. He wouldn't even lick it off my fingers. He didn't seem to be in pain, but he was obviously unhappy. We gave him lots of pets, and he liked that. But clearly wasn't happy with the situation.

They're supposed to call when he has eaten and been able to keep the food down. It is 8pm now and they haven't called. Rob was thinking about visiting him but to be honest I think it would just depress me more...and I have cried a couple of times today.

To be honest, I don't think the nodule they removed is the cause of him not eating. I think it's something else, but I haven't a clue as to what it could be.

If he isn't eating tomorrow morning, I am thinking about transferring him to our normal vet, who will be open by then. They might be better equipped to deal with figuring out what's wrong. And they have his past medical records.
