4 days and almost $500 later

She's home.  For now at least.  Here she is with poor shaved legs.


Now the fun begins.  They gave me a big full IV bag and a big bunch of needles.  I have to stab my kitty once a day and give her fluids.  In her neck.  * shudder *  They had me try on her while I was still there and I kept dry heaving. 

So I have to do that once a day and give her antibiotics once a day for 10 days to 2 weeks and then bring her back to retest her bloodwork and see where she is.  If she bounces back, great!!  If not... well we'll go from there.  They gave me referral information for a specialist to get ultrasound if I decide to have further tests done to see what’s wrong with her.  Obviously, that's not in the cards just now.  I’ll see how she responds to this fluid therapy first.

I'm just glad to have her home.  Even though I have to ditch her here soon to run the booth.  But she's sleeping soundly anyway so she'll be ok.

Thanks everyone for the love and support.  I'm sorry I'm so difficult when I'm stressed.  I'm just really, really tired.
