Vet update number 1

The vet just called; Honey's BP and temperature are dropping back to normal range, but she's not rallying as much as the vet would like. They're going to an echocardiogram to see if there's anything in the heart that may be causing problems. Our normal vet did a chest xray on Friday and didn't see anything problematic, but the e-vet says the echocardiogram is sort of step two of that, a closer look. We should know more in about an hour.

I'm so not going to be sleeping well tonight.

vet update number 3

Honey the Wonder Dog hangs on! She's still sleepy, and she's still on IV fluids, but when we got there, she was better than she was when the vet called us. She was groggy, but she responded to us when we talked to her and pet her. They've got her in an incubator to keep her warm, and they're checking on her every 5 minutes. There's a good chance she'll make it through the night and we'll see how she is in the morning.

I'm so going to have to burn a vacation day tomorrow, as there's no way I'm going to have enough sleep under my belt to function.

Vet update number 4?

Honey's back home with us. She stabilized to the point where we could bring her home. We've got to give her 100 cc's of subcutaneous fluids once a day, so that'll be a new challenge, but I'm so glad we've got some more time with her.
