love is a warm puppy

Loki got sick in the middle of the night and continued to get worse through the day. She kept throwing up and couldn’t manage to do her business, so I feared a blockage of some kind. My neighbor’s daughter was visiting her mom, so I asked her to come and check Loki out (she’s a vet). She agreed that it looked like some sort of blockage or possibly pancreatitis, and recommended that she be seen by her vet or go to the hospital. Being Sunday, I had to take her to the emergency vet hospital.

They did xrays, blood tests, etc. and put her on IV fluids because she was dehydrated from all the vomiting. My poor baby is spending the night in the hospital. She’ll have an ultrasound tomorrow in hopes of pinpointing what the problem is.

Of course, Brni is in VA, so I’m alone with worry tonight. I’ve only spent maybe 7 or 8 nights without Loki in the eight years we’ve had her. She sleeps with us at night, and when Brni is out of town, she keeps me warm.

I feel very alone.
