Abby's not feeling well...

Update:

The Vet says Abby is responding well to the fluids & antibiotics...They say I can bring her home with medication...

I am going to pick her up in a little while & will be watching her closely...I took a vacation day from work tomorrow so I can keep a close eye on her...

I'll help her catch up on everyone's Blogs tomorrow...

Thank You for all your concerns & good wishes...

Abby's Mom

Abby's Mom here:

Yesterday Abby was very clingy...She just wanted to be held & cuddled...

She woke me up at 4:00AM this morning & she was shaking & her tummy was very rigid & I could tell she was in pain...I called the Vet & got their Answering Service...The Vet called me right back & said she would meet me at the office...So off we went...

The Vet said she needed to keep Abby there & run some tests...Poor little Abby was so scared...It was so hard to leave her there, but I knew that was the best place for her right now...

I brought her bed & her Piggy Stuffie with her when I took her to the Vet, cuz I thought if she had to stay, she would feel more comfortable if she had her own bed...I asked the Vet if she could have it with her & she said she could...

It's now, 6:40AM & the Vet just called me...They have done blood work & X-Rays...There is no blockage, so that's good...Some of the levels in her blood work are elevated, so the Vet believes she has Pancreatitis...They are giving her fluids & antibiotics now...They also gave her some pain medicine...They think she will be OK...& I may be able to pick her up this evening...

The Vet said she is alot more comfortable & she is laying in her bed with her head on her Piggy...

I'll let you know more when I know more...

Oh Abby, poor Abby, you had to endure pain from tummy and then needle sticks, I hope everything will be OK, you go home this evening as the Vet told your mom.
Did you eat anything besides what your mom fed you?
