the lasix moved enough fluid out of the lungs to get a good view of her chest. she has a very large and advanced medialstinal tumour between the lungs and the heart. bridgette is now palliative care. her new wheelchair arrived today so she had about half an hour of toodling around while nicole got it all adjusted properly. she did pretty good for her first time in it but was tired because today was a very long day for her.
we will continue with the lasix for now, added steriods to slow down the tumour growth and reduce inflammation. the vet gave me a prn anticholenergic for any midnight respiratory crises and pain meds to cover any discomfort she might have. we will watch her carefully for when she is ready to go and help her when she asks.
serena and babes are back from the vet and none too impressed with humans right now.
ronnie and mother theresa both had an antibiotic injection today, hopefully they will both feel good again for awhile.
it has been a very tough end of the year, have a toast for us tonight wishing 2009 will be better for all.
a happy and safe new years to everyone.
