Glad to hear he is doing well now! I am going thru a very similar problem here. Altho mine is with food that became obstructed in his intestines. Today marks a week since he first became ill.

Only thing is that I had asked my vet about the mineral oil and she was totally aganist it. Said it could do more harm than good. Just something to maybe think about if anyone else is going that route.

I have been feeding mine with a syringe and doing pears. Basically same idea as the prunes:) He's still perky, alert, but just cant seem to pass this thing! But it has moved down the tract so hoping it will come out soon!

Looks like a very relieved guy! :)

Take care!
Renee
