Izzy Update

Doesn't that just melt your heart


those eyes are killing me

We finished Izzy's round of meds and did the blood tests again and the liver number were still high. We talked about all the options and next steps from ultrasound to liver biopsy. This is what we decided. Spay now using liver safe drugs, when we get to AZ, five weeks from now I will give the complete file from Vet here to the Vet there and get her opinion. If she agrees further testing is needed we will start with the least invasive, ultrasound. So yesterday Iz had her surgery. It was a very stressful day for me. I told the nurse, this is probably why God did not give us children, he knew I would not live through it! I worried so. She did great last night, although I didn't get her to eat or drink until around 6 am. She is a picky eater anyway and I think the she was just too doped up to remember what she was supposed to do. She finally went out to potty at 1 am this morning when I gave her a pain pill. I just want this to be over with, I don't handle it well when someone I love is sick. When it is me I can be as tough as needed but someone I love, stick a fork in me I am done. I think it is going to be another long day.

  1. What a sad, sad face. Reminds me of when Jeremy had his tonsils out; his comment was, "I'll never do this to a child of mine." Just about broke my heart.

    Don't worry she'll be good as new in a day or two. The first day after surgery is always the worst. Just keep giving her plenty of love.
