    Default Abby is in the hospital

    They kept her. They aren't sure what is wrong with her. Her numbers are through the roof. Her BUN is over 200. I had it down to 65. She is also closer to that magic treatment number of 20 for her PCV. She is now fully anemic.

    Dr Sing said this might all just be from a GI episode. Being sick throws the body into a tailspin. But it could also be natural progression. I HATE those words!!!

    To be safe, they kept her for IV fluid therapy. It's sort of like dialysis for people. They also gave her a shot of antibiotics and an anti-nausea medicine.

    They wouldn't even let me say goodbye to her. She probably thinks that I left her there.

    I made a decision on the way home. I don't know what got into me. In the beginning they told me to give her that canned crap. I refused and treated her MY way. Then something got into my head and I started doubting myself. I started doing what they told me to and look where we are.

    I'm going back to MY way. Her kidney values were the best they've ever been when I was doing it my way. Then I listened to nuVet because I believed he knew better. Well he doesn't. He might be a doctor and he might know dogs but he doesn't know sweetie heads. That's my department. I'm the sweetie head expert. Not him.

    I can't lose her. Not now. Not yet. She's really sick and I'm not ready.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Always go with your gut instincts. So hard to not second guess yourself as a mama and as well trained as drs are they do NOT know everything. My gosh I have been so anxious waiting for word. Maybe this is what she needs to help kick this bug and feel better. Are they going to call or are you just planning on going back later? Wouldnt let you say goodbye?!?! Hang in there, she is a tough little girl. Was she still throwing up as much? Sorry for all the questions. I was just SO hoping for good news when I got on this morning.

    I'm sorry Bev too for Abby, but she's being taken care of in the hospital and closely monitored, so that's a good thing! Let's just hope and continue to pray that this is "just" a GI bug that's causing her body to respond this way, and that she will recover from this. I will continue to look for updates throughout the day. Hang in there, my friend!!

    She only ate that french toast yesterday. My son went and bought her chicken and broccoli from the Chinese restaurant but she only ate a piece of broccoli and went back to sleep. She didn't throw up again but she peed in her sleep. She didn't even wake up.

    They don't know how long she will be there for. Maybe a couple of hours. Maybe a couple of days. They need to get her stable. That BUN needs to come down. Her iron needs to go up. Anemia in itself could kill her. She's being poisoned by the nitrogen in her blood stream. Her white count is high. There's an infection in there somewhere. AMY is higher which means her pancreas is getting weaker. I can't read this report anymore. There's more but I don't want to see it right now.

    Oh Bev I am so sorry!! My heart is breaking for you right now.... I cannot believe they would not let you say goodbye... Some vets are just weird about people going into the "back room"... Ugh! I think would have been a lobby stalker. How soon until you get a follow up? How can they expect you to go home and not go insane staring at the phone? I am sick to my stomach thinking about what you are feeling right now.... Praying for you both.
