Waiting for God

Not much good news at the vet's yesterday. He said she didn't look well, she was dehydrated, not responsive, weak. Could be liver failure, kidney failure or who knows what. It possibly could be something treatable but I think he was trying to make me feel better. I'm waiting on the results from a geriatric profile bloodwork. May be back today or Wednesday. She drinks water, not sure why dehydrated. Her skin has no elasticity, due to being dehydrated. I think it is loose skin cause she has lost weight. She weighed 2.47 lbs, she is so very tiny. I have been giving her Nutracal, a thick gooey paste with lots of vitamins, nutrients and minerals by mouth with a syringe. I gave her some molasses, for the iron, last night and she did eat a little bit of hamburger. She did drink from the bowl but have been giving her extra water with a dropper. He told me to offer her anything that she might eat. I told him that is what I have been doing. She sleeps with me, right in the crook of my arm and either rests her head on my hand or the pillow close to my face. She is the sweetest little girl I have ever known. Right now I'm just waiting. I really think I am waiting for God to help her slip away quietly while she's sleeping in my loving arms. Thank you for all the warm thoughts.

Will update later, when I know more.

Sounds like waiting is the best thing to do for now. You are doing what you can and that is what counts. Your little one has blessed you.

As long as she's in no pain, all you can do is wait I suppose.
Hugs.
I'd hate to be in your shoes right now.

Thinking of you, Becky. Godspeed in either her improvement, or His intervention.

Just cherish the time you have with her...

Sorry, but I'm crying here. I know how hard this is...

I am so sorry and I am praying.

I have to type left handed but I wanted to stop by and see what you are doing.
