Addie is in the hospital and new UPDATE

Mom heard from Tom Addi's dad tonight.
 Addi is in the vet hospital tonight. Brittney had the day off today being a teacher and Addi wasn't able to go potty. She called several vets and no one could get her in. Brittney finally found one. Addi passed 1 big stone and a couple small bladder stones. Apparently the stones are preventing her from going potty.
They are trying a catheter tonight to see if it makes her go potty and then they'll do surgery tonight to remove the rest of the stones. X-rays shows more stones still there.
If the catheter doesn't work then they'll do the surgery tomorrow. Either way she's having surgery.
She's on pain meds and real loopy. Her blood test came out really good that they are glad about that.
So paws crossed that she'll be ok. The vet has only seen 2 cases like this in all their years and in 1 case the dogs bladder ruptured.
We are just so glad that Brittney was off school otherwise this may have been a whole different situation cuz Brittney wouldn't have been there to get her to a vet ASAP.
Addi and I have become great. Friends so I am very concerned.
We will keep you updated
Some of Addi's stones were blocking her being able to go potty. The Catheter has worked and has pushed the stones back into her blatter. Tom had to move her today to a vet that can do the surgery. He will do the surgery tomorrow morning. She is on strong meds cuz she is in alot of pain. Not sure if she'll go home tomorrow night or have to stay another night. We will just be glad when all the stones are removed. Tom said some are as big as a jelly belly. He saw her this morning when he moved her and she recognized him and wagged her tail. Keep prayers for Addi
