Picking up Zoey
It's not that she all better, it's just the vet agrees she is stressing herself out too much. They were able to get more IV fluids in her, but not without having someone sitting there calming her the entire time. She isn't throwing up anymore or having diarrhea, but she hasn't eaten since Monday and kept it down. She is going to be on a special diet and I will probably not get much if any sleep tonight... but that's OK. I will do whatever it takes to get her better.
I was reading about Canine pancreatitis. Scary stuff and it can be fatal. If the worse happens and she doesn't recover I want her here with us so she isn't afraid and is surrounded by love. But I am a pretty good nurse. Bedside nursing is what I do. Even if my bed this time will be the floor next to her blanket. We pick her up at 11:30. First I have to go to the bank and get money out of my safety deposit box. My emergency stash is almost gone. This has to be our last emergency for awhile, LOL. I can always get money from my son if I have too. My MIL offered also but I just can't do that, not with BIL. That would justify it to him somehow. Plus I hate borrowing money. Just can't make myself do if I can find any other way.
Anyway. I am sterilizing all of her dishes to make sure she doesn't reinfect herself. I washed the kitchen floor again. I have some filtered water already for her. Now to bring her smelly self home. Wonder when we will be able to bathe her? Wish us all luck and thanks so much to everyone for their prayers. I truly believe that helps. All that white positive energy surrounding her.
Rick is coming back to pick me up and then going back to MIL.
