Ivan keeps getting better then worse. We could have expected some additional gut spasms, sure, but he worsened to the point that even the vet is concerned. Dr. E gave him more drugs and additional fluids because we started reintroducing soaked forage (alf cubes/hot water) and he started presenting symptoms worse than the ones that landed him in the hospital in the first place. Dr. E says he's concerned enough that he's going to stay the night at the hospital with him, so hopefully he'll get better and we'll have a good prognosis by morning. If he's not better by morning, then Dr. E is planning to call Auburn, and then we'll go from there.
