reggie AND raggety annie both went out on one week trials today (sigh..i was getting attached to that little puff-a-lump!)
mac is back from the vets..he got kicked out of the clinic pretty early cuz he stinks so bad. i should have named him pepe la pew!
chica is cleared to come home tonight after her big dental surgery so i will be leaving in a few minutes to pick her up in maple ridge.
i went out to see katie...i knew the vet was pretty close to putting her down this morning, she was virtually comatose. she has rallied a bit this afternoon and while still not able to get up...she is awake and alert so now he is thinking as long as she holds her own, we can go thru with her til monday. much of her bloodwork is improved. her WBC is normal again (the infection is being controlled) her blood glucose levels have dropped from 38 to a respectable 9 which is really good, her amylase while still in the 6000's has dropped a bit too... BUT her creatinine and her BUN are starting to go high and this is with a ton of fluids running thru her so it may mean she is heading for total renal shut down...this would be the end for her.
bottom line is...we still do not know which way she will go, but as the vet said...she has been sick for a VERY long time...pulling her half destroyed remains out of the fire is not going to be easy. ahh katie, you are a good girl and we will stand with you cuz hope will float til it sinks.
