I was hoping this weekend would be relaxing and lazy, but things did not go as planned. We spent Friday night at the vet emergency room because Kona was still sick and we were worried she was dehydrated and that her organs might fail. Taking her to an unfamiliar place and waiting for hours while she was in ICU was TERRIBLE, but I am glad we did because she had a bacterial infection and was, in fact, dehydrated. She is now on a bunch of meds and is getting special food (boiled chicken, rice, & cottage cheese), which she loves. Here she is after we got home early Saturday morning:
The rest of the weekend she was pretty lethargic and spent most of the time napping. She was still having some "leakage" (gross I know) so we decided to put a makeshift diaper on her. We cut up an old t-shirt (we cut a hole for her tail too) and it actually worked really well!
Hopefully she is on the way to full recovery. It only took a shot, some fluids, a few tests, and $400 dollars! We were SO worried about her, so really, we would have paid whatever to get her healthy again. I'm just glad she's okay :)
BTW, for those of you coming over next week, don't worry, we have washed our cushion covers and plan to deep clean before anyone steps foot in our home!
