Thank you, I just got home. She is still with us. She hadn't rebounded back after the 2nd transfusion and the vet said she seemed restless and was crying. They thought maybe the catheter they have had in her front leg since wednesday was bothering her so the took it out and put one in a hind leg and she stopped crying. Her blood count went up a little. My mom and I sat with her a long time. Her heart rate had been super high, but started to go down a bit. It was fluctuating a lot though. She isn;t urinating enough so they are putting in a urinary catheter. We had to leave so they could put in the catheter plus 3:30 am isn;t really visiting hours. But the vet will call if there is any change. Sorry for any typos, I am really tired. I will update you tomorrow.

Sable, you, and your family are in my thoughts. It sounds like she's in good hands, but your worrying isn't over. Please take care of yourself as well as you are taking care of Sable.

I hope Sable has a better day tomorrow, poor kiddo.

They couldn't put in the urinary catheter because if the swelling in her body. But they changed her medications a bit and she peed a large amount this morning. She still won't eat and they are going to put in a nasogastric feeding tube. She will also probably need another transfusion in the next 24-36 hours.

I really don't know what to do. I hate seeing her like this. She isn't going really downhill in a "we need to decide whether to euthanise right now" kind of way, but neither is she getting better. She's just kind of... there. The vet said there is only a 20-30% chance that she will recover. They still don't know why she isn't getting better. The vet recommended we sign a DNR because if she does crash, trying to resuscitate her would be futile. It was so hard to do that. It just keeps dragging on, day after day of this. And I want to give my dog every chance possible, but I don't know if I'm being cruel keeping her hooked up to all the machines in a hospital. I love her so much and I don't want her to suffer, but I can't bear the thought of her dying.

Oh, ppk, I just want my puppy back. It's all I can think about. My parents are downstairs watching tv, and I don't know how they can just watch tv like everything is normal. I can't move anywhere in the house without seeing Sable's things. Toys in the living room. Bowls in the kitchen. Her raincoat on the porch. And my room is the worst because it is Sable's room too. So her crate takes up half the room, and there's her toy bin, and her dog puzzles, and her fresh breath stuff, and all the photos of her on the walls... she belongs here and I want more than anything to look over at her crate and have her looking back at me. And I look at the pictures of her when she was healthy and happy, and then I think of how she looks now with her face all swollen and the wires and tubes sticking out of her and it is so so horrible.
