My gut told me that we needed to do something else other than just "wait and see" and that we needed to do it fast.
So I changed her over to the vet that we use for Toby at another vet practice. I needed to get another opinion. Of course I came to this realization at 4:45pm and they normally close at 5pm, so I called Toby's vet in hysterics and they stayed open and waited for me to rush her over while they had our other vet fax over the records.
Toby's vet examined Maggie, looked at her test results and came to the conclusion that this is much more dire than a "wait and see", that something is happening to her that needs immediate attention. Her temperature is falling below normal, from where is was yesterday and then even this morning. So they admitted her and she is staying there now with an IV and monitors. It was so hard to leave her there but I know she is in capable hands.
In my vow to leave no stone unturned I am having a consult with an animal communicator as well.
I am sorry my blog has turned into a pet medical blog. As soon as Maggie gets better I'll get back to art!
thanks sweetie! for some reason it soothes me to post about it here.
you know like when a loved one is sick and all you want to do is shout it from the rooftops "hey my baby girl is sick!! universe HELP ME!!!"
All the Best :)
hoping you'll have nothing but good news to post tomorrow!
I know you are having a long night worrying about your baby - sooo glad you took her to Toby's doc. I pray that, in the morning, you hear she is much better and simply had a tummy ache.
Warm wishes from the Bay Area.
You and Maggie and Toby and Paul are all in my thoughts and in my heart.
