Sick baby

I had planned on updated you on the progress of the renovation but that will wait.  Poor little Miss Abby is sick.   I came home Wednesday from work and the den(her room) was covered in a mess, bloody diarrhea and then there was another pool of just blood on the other side.   I freaked out.  It was a significant amount of blood.  I thought she was dying!  I grabbed her and we raced to the Vet Clinic.  After a series of tests everything was fine except she had a fever.  We worried there might be an obstruction inside but X-rays were clear.  Thank God!  It seems it is some kind of gastrointestinal infection.  We came home with 3 prescriptions and some special canned food.  
I put one of my old flannel sheets in the dryer to warm it up and she curled up.  Yes, I know......spoiled.  She seemed better yesterday but then it happened again this morning and at noon, but less blood (but still a lot). The Vet told me to give the meds another day and just feed her a minimal amount for a bit.  But if she gets worse to bring her back.   So far tonight she's OK, just sookie and clingy.
She scared me to death!   I know some of you saw this on Facebook so I thought I'd do a quick update.  Thanks for your concern.

  6. OMG, I'd have freaked out too. Am so sorry your bundle of joy isn't feeling well. Hope those meds work really quickly and you give us good news soon. And no, that isn't being spoiled that is being a good pet parent and giving her a comfortable place to snuggle during her illness. Please keep up informed.
