The mood's a little (okay, a lot) down around here. Bailey went into VERG (the local animal ER) on Wednesday. She was breathing really hard, wouldn't walk or get up, and she was throwing up.
After days of waiting for results and some very scary phone calls (poor little girl had to be put in an oxygen cage), we found out that she has lung cancer and kidney disease. The lungs are the most pressing problem because it's hard for her to breathe and she doesn't want to eat.
She's home now and resting. She ate some canned food (yay!) and is looking a little better. We're going to start her on steroids next week. We will keep her as long as she's comfortable. The ultimate and only goal is to give her a humane existence for as long as she feels good.
She is very loved by Kate, Ross, and I.
