The Weasely One did stay overnight at the vets. The vet called me this morning and told me that he had okay news. It wasn’t great but better. She seems to be doing well with the fluids and all, and is eating on her own. The vet asked me if I had noticed any hind leg weakness lately. I did notice that when she is walking that sometimes her hind legs slide a bit however, we do have tile throughout the house so I assumed it was more of a traction issue. As of right now she has not regained the strength in her hind legs. It’s so hard to believe that just the night before last that Abby was chasing her through the livingroom. It happened so fast. I’m trying to remain hopeful. She had a seizure a little over a year ago and had lost some of her mobility in her hind quarters. It did come back though within a few days. The vet seems to think that the prednisone will help that. Gosh, I hope so. In addition to this the vet did an ultrasound that showed a fluid filled sack around one of her kidneys. He seems to think that only one of her kidneys is functioning properly.
I came to work today. Luckily there are no clients scheduled to come in so I can basically sit at my desk and work without interruption or embarrassment if I need to cry. I knew all those Dunkin Donuts napkins I’ve been squirreling away in the desk drawer may come in handy. Anyways, I’m trying to remain positive despite the fact that my heart feels like it is breaking into a million pieces. I hope the next post is more positive.
