    I tried to edit my first post with an update but for some reason it wont let me without totally screwing up the formatting. I'm too tired to try to figure out why.

    Dr Sing just called me with an update. Abby made it through the night with no seizures. Her blood pressure when she was admitted was 220/130, it's down to 190/100. They are going to adjust her meds to try to lower that number, they can't really begin to treat her crisis points until her bp is a little more stable. There isn't really a standard for blood pressure in dogs like there is for people (120/80). Instead they give ranges but even that varies by age and breed. The normal "range" for an average dog is around 160-180/100. Because of her age and size, they are considering the optimal bp for her to be 160. God I feel like I should have a PhD in veterinary sciences by now.

    She won't eat for them but she does have an appetite. She stuck her nose up at the food that I sent with her and the foods that they tried to give her. But she devoured the dry food they hand fed her. Abby has never in her life had straight dry food, they think she ate it so heartily because she thought it was a treat.

    They've noticed some blood in her urine. That could be from an UTI or it could be something more serious. There is just no way to tell at this point.

    Otis and Roxy as having a hard time of it. Roxy (who has never shown an ounce of interest in the sweetie head) won't eat and she hasn't left the front of Abby's crate all morning. She just sits there looking around. Otis is being so bad! He got into the garbage TWICE. He never goes in the garbage but so far he got into the garbage in the kitchen (and get this) he tossed the cans outside and threw that all over the yard.

    I'm going there to see her this afternoon. I would be in the car right now but Dr Sing asked me to wait a little while so they can run some more tests on her. Maybe she will eat for me when I get there?

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    I came straight here this morning for an update since 6am, bless you for
    letting us know how Abby's doing this morning...I'm so thankful, as I know
    everyone is, that she's still here and hopeful signs of getting better.

    I know she's not out of danger but she doesn't seem to want to go just yet!

    What a great bully, so so special and has a wonderfully special Momma too.

    Continuing prayers for every one at your house, dear Bev


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I just saw this now and I am praying for little Abby!!! Sending all my positive thoughts your way. That is a little miracle puppy and I sure hope she pulls through this!!! I also most definitely believe she knows how much you love her. I think that's why she has continued to beat the odds over and over....because she has a family and momma that love her and she carries that with her. That's what gives her that spunky fighting spirit!
