Pupdate

Good news! Sally is improving. I slept downstairs with her last night and it was tough. She was definitely hurting. I got her out at 1:30 a.m. and then again at 5 a.m. At the 5 a.m. potty (GROSS ALERT) she had an explosion of diarrhea. Poor thing, but I think she felt better afterwards. Around 8 a.m. Bill got her to eat 4 treats and some kibble!

She has perked up and is not as depressed as she was yesterday. Still very slow moving, but at least she can get up by herself. Plan of action is to give the lasix once a day instead of twice because of the diarrhea. Too much of a risk of dehydration. And we will keep her on the pain medicine and we added some Tylan powder to firm her up.

I can't tell you how happy we are with her improvement. We know she is far from out of the woods, but at least she has some light in her eyes. Sally is one tough old bird!

Oh, man, I hope Sally continues to feel good and comfortable, and having that light in her eyes. That's all that matters...

Happy birthday, by the way, Bridget!
