Update on Annie

IMG_6962

Isn't she a beauty?

I just spoke with Joe. He saw Annie this morning and she looked much better. She was thrilled to see him and gave lots of kisses. Our wonderful vet's staff gave them an entire room to be in and he was able to look her over from head to toe, that is between hugs and kisses! Jason took a biopsy from her mouth and her belly. The earliest we will hear anything is 5 days, even with it being expedited. Her belly looked much better, had dried up quite a bit and her tongue was better, still discolored but better. The cortisone shot helped.

I asked Joe if she had eaten and he said they had given her two cans of wet food on his orders and she ate it all up. All in all it was good news. Jason is off today but he will be in around 3pm to see her and more than likely he will call Joe. It is so wonderful to have such a caring person to take care of our beloved pets.

If all goes well today and tonight we will more than likely bring her home tomorrow. I know Sophie will be ever so thrilled to have her sister back. I imagine we will all 3 argue on how gets to have Annie sleep with them tomorrow night!

I feel much better now and have hope that she will be ok. But it's not over yet. There still remains the mystery of her discolored tongue and the skin condition that needs to heal. But we seem to be on the road.

I'll let you guys know and thanks again for all of the love and support.

Oh my goodness. No I've never heard of anything like this. I'm so sorry Annie has been sick, and will be sending her healing thoughts.

I had my toes crossed on my way to work this morning, hoping for good news. I needed my fingers for the steering wheel.

Oh it's good to hear she's feeling at least a bit better. The fact that she is eating well makes me very happy. It's awful when they lose their appetite! Much love and good thoughts coming your way!

Hope you get a good report on Annie today.

I'm so glad that Annie is better. It's hard dealing with beloved animals when they are sick. They talk to us in so many ways, but it's hard for the stoic ones to tell us much when they are ill. Bless Annie.

The older our animals get the more we have to pay attention to them. It is natural for them to hide any signs of illness or weakness--in nature the weakest don't make it. Sweet Annie has a good mom and pop to watch out for her.

Yay for Annie. I am rooting for you gal! I don't know what I would do without my Maggie. Y'all are in my thoughts.

Oh no! We missed bloglast the past couple of days and had no idea about Annie - so relieved to hear she's OK and hopefully on the road to recovery.

It's no fun when our furkids aren't well... if only they could talk to alleviate our worries!

I am so glad Annie got to see her Daddy and is eating too. Sounds like she is getting the best of care. I hope she is home soon. 5 days! Thats pretty good, better than your doctor. LOL. I pray it is not serious. {{{hugs}}}
