07:05 pm: Even better news!


Li'l Nyx may get to come home tomorrow! :-) Her blood work last night was holding strong and she was not vomiting--still has a drippy butt and nose, but nothing like it was...

I went to visit her tonight and rather than having to stay in the triage area and love on her in the kennel, they brought her into a room all swaddled in a towel. I spent an hour holding her in my lap while she slept. They tore her from my arms to take more blood--if her blood tests are as good tonight, the doctor is moving her to oral antibiotics and will let her come home with me tomorrow.

The doc told me she is a very lucky dog. She was in such bad shape and has made a pretty miraculous recovery; not many dogs make it through this illness. He even upgraded her prognosis from guarded to good. Each day her blood holds, it's a day toward making her healthy.

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes! Nyx and I send you all kisses and hugs!

I love my six million dollar dog.

If you need help with vet bills let me know. The bionic dog deserves it.

Awww, thank you, that's so sweet of you! :-) The cool thing is I set up the Care Credit line and the interest is pretty low and with all the OT I've been working, I should be able to pay it off soon. :-) I tell ya, that little dog is worth every penny to me. I'd second mortgage my house if it meant helping her!

I think you've been her fairy godmother all along sending good wishes her way...those wishes sparkling in the wind departed Florida through the cars and trains, planes all the way to Marietta today and floated right in the door of the Urgent Care Clinic so they could cradle my baby in a blanket of warm wishes...and that's exactly how she spent her hour; being cradled in a little blue towel built with wishes, held snuggled right up in her mommy's arms and she closed her eyes and felt rested.

I would adore being the Fairy Godmother of a Daschund! They are such sweeties!
