So disappointing....no stitching all week last week. Easter prep was in full force. Wednesday we did the gathering of goodies. Thursday we were doing the making of goodies. Izzy my dog jumped up from a nap and started breathing very heavily then had a series of strokes. It was her 13th birthday as well. So call to the vet. Emergency vet trip. What a roller coaster of emotions. Thankfully they let Fred (hubby) be in there with me as the bad news kept coming. She had a bad infection multiple places...nose...bum...ears. So they did blood work. The blood work showed the infection but then showed she was very anemic so Xrays ordered to find out where and if emergency surgery overnight was required. Fred was brought in. Xrays came back showing new problems. Her liver and heart are very swollen. Not the blood though like we thought but an ultrasound would show official diagnosis on her spleen if it was a slow bleed or not. Very expensive. Spleen's can be removed and they do okay with the surgery but 2/3 of the time it's cancer and a 6 month life span. But very costly again. Plus remember the swollen liver and heart. So all that for not probably. So I asked her what she would do. Treat the symptoms and see. I'm not an idiot I know dogs aren't around forever even though trust me I want her to be. We lost our other dog when he turned 12. So they did an IV and we were given some meds and we came home. She is doing better today. She is tired but doing a lot better being alert and happy. We are loving her dearly as we always have. Maybe a little more attention than normal which I'm sure she loves every second of.
Friday we all loaded up and went down to our cabin. Yep Izzy included. She loves our cabin.
