Recovery ~ Sadie Update
The good news is, all of our fevers are gone now. The one thing remaining for me this morning, was a big fat headache. After two doses of ibuprofen I realized I had not had coffee for a few days. Duh! I, with my ice pack on my head, got up and downed coffee. Problem solved.
This is the first time I stayed in bed the entire day, then night and next day. Literally. But, that is one thing I've learned - to really rest (even if the kids can't pick up the slack and leave the kitchen looking like a whirlwind came through it).
Sorry for not replying to comments, but will get to those soon hopefully.
Sadie is doing so-so. One day she is having trouble walking and standing, and the next she is playing in the snow. The vet said it is possible the bleeding stopped on it's own, but she has more than one lesion on her liver. So far today, she is alert and about. We are watching her closely. The vet had told Daughter that Sadie would not live through the night (the day she took her to the emergency clinic).
