    Do you think she knows that I didn't leave her? I keep thinking of her scared and thinking I don't want her anymore. They love her in there. Everyone spoils her. I know they are taking excellent care of her. But they aren't me and I didn't even get to tell her that I would be back for her.

    For me, her name was Abby

    I'm positive that Abby knows you love her and will be back for her. Any chance that you can schedule visiting hours with the clinic?

    I probably would of stayed and been a real pain in there butts. But then again, I don't always take orders well either. I do what I want when it comes to what's in my heart. Persistent. If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't , is my motto.

    My heart is with you right now. You may feel very confused and just want to run away and make everything well.

    I know that they are running more tests on her right now. They have use a catheter to get urine to test that. They need to make sure there is no protein leaking into her urine. That would absolutely signify end stage renal disease.

    I'm going to call them in an hour or so to see if I can come by to see her. If they can get her to eat I sure as heck don't want them feeding her that canned crap! I want to bring her lunch. I made her a new batch of rice krispie treats. I think she needs a treat

    My mind is focusing on the numbers from todays tests. I had her run a full CBC, not just a kidney panel. Some of these numbers aren't bad. Her calcium is high by 0.09, phosphorous is high by only 2 points. The ratio of the 2 is good. At least that's positive! High amylase is bad news for the pancreas. Normal should be no higher than 1200, Abbys AMY is almost 1900. Low Albumin means bad liver function. But it's not SO bad, only 1 point lower than it should be. Low RBC, HGB & HCT. I don't know what that means. Her sugar is high again. Why does that fluctuate so much? I have a lot of research to do today, at least I'll have something to focus on other than the lack of someone biting my toes.

    For me, her name was Abby

    I am very sorry to hear about Abby and sorry for what you are going through, I can't imagine how awful it must be! I am sending all my positive energy your way. I can't believe they didn't let you say goodbye! I would have marched right up to them and demanded it ( but then again, I am a as stubborn as they get). Any chance you could tell them you are sick over this and feeling very badly about not getting to say goodbye and they could sneak you in for a second just for peace of mind?

    Also, I know that Abby knows she has your love always and that she is surrounded by love from those taking care of her. They always know we will come back for them, I truly believe. When we leave for work or vacations...they always know you are as loyal to them as they are to you. I am guilty of assuming my dog is thinking/feeling wayyy more than capable of as far as cognition goes in dogs...we all do it! But they keep it simple and wont feel scared or abandoned....just the love!

    She probably thinks you are still there waiting. Plus feeling the way she does she isnt doing much but sleeping anyhow I am sure so dont think such thoughts. We do over exaggerate what we "think" they are thinking when in this case she is probably not really thinking too much anyhow. Just resting and healing. Hope you can bring her some lunch.

    Bev she for sure knows Momma didnt leave her! You brought her to Tinton Falls right? They are amazing there and love our babies and take very good care of them! I was a mess when Brutus was there for 4 days but he was so well taken care of! I know though its not you and with Abby its different! I pray for Miss Abby and you to get through this quickly

    Bev..this isn't the time to doubt yourself or especially the love Abby knows you feel towards her. Take a deep breath. It happened so suddenly I am thinking her numbers are so changed because she is sick. I say..we focus on her stabilizing and then when she is more herself, treat her the way you feel is best. The important thing here is Abby is where she needs to be. If they want to keep her.. You march down there and tell them that you aren't leaving without seeing and holding her. Period! We are here for you. And for Abby too. Remember.. One step at a time.

    I am just so sorry to hear this ... I really hoped that she would be feeling better after you said she had eaten a little yesterday. She is in the best place right now and getting the best care. But ... yes ... badger them with phone calls and take lunch there anyway. I'd also demand to go back and see her ... even if it is just a few seconds. I still find it unbelievable that they didn't let you say goodbye to her!! Big hugs Bev and sending you positive prayers right now!!!
