Default Help! Jumping Axolotls, Floating, Mysterious Item in Water

I went to bed at around 4 am last night, and at 10 am my mom woke me up because my axolotl had jumped out of the tank when I was asleep and crawled across my entire carpet and was curled in a ball in a small puddle of water. So he was there for up to 6 hours. He fell from about a foot and a half because he was in quarantine from contaminated water, so I don't know of any injuries beyond peeling skin (for the SECOND time in a week), since black melanoids are harder to examine.
Now he floats like this in some hunch back position and I just found this white fleshy tube in the water with him. I'worried that he may have somehow passed some kind of organ or something and it's really scaring me. Does he look like he broke anything? What is this white thing? What's with this hunch back?

I'm sure he didn't pass an organ, probably a stress-poop or something. Just keep and eye on him and hope for the best.
