I just got Dylan from the vet, and in about an hour we will be taking him to a 24 hour facility to find out what is causing the fluid in his abdomen. The vet said that he is doing much better, hooking him up to an I.V. seemed to do wonders. They also said his heartbeat is on the low side, and again they aren't sure why. I will be setting up a care credit account, so I can make payments on his treatment, as opposed to having to pay upfront. I will be getting pet insurance after this debacle for sure. The vet tech said that he was feisty both last night, and this morning, she even said he lunged and swatted at her which is very feisty for Dylan, as he is usually a total teddy bear. But don't we all get feisty when people are poking and prodding us?
Dylan wanted me to give all the well wishers all the paws up. He has many more spoonfuls of Coco whip to eat, and although I personally prefer Chao and Follow Your Heart slices, I see a bag of daiya in Dylan's future. It's been a big relief being able to talk about this on this blog, and feel like people understand, it's really made a difference in my mental health, and made it easier to deal with it all. I'm going to go enjoy this hour with Dylan, and hopefully the news gets better and better!
