update on georgie

(gracie and her georgie at the doctors)

Georgie didn't want to eat much this morning ... he only ate a cup of food but I thought I'd be able to get him to eat more later. He seemed alright at first but then he refused to even eat the chicken I offered from my hand, which he's never done before. So we called the doctor and were able to get an appointment just a couple hours later for 12:30.

The doctor said he looked like a very unhappy doggie. He said that Georgie was severely dehydrated and nauseous. He wasn't sure of the cause and said he didn't know if he had a virus or an infection or if it's related to his original cancer, or what???

He said for us to leave Georgie and they would give him intravenous fluids to hydrate him and a mega dose of IV anti-nausea medicine and that they would also do more xrays and see if they could determine if something had changed about his original mass they found back in December. 

His blood work from Thursday, came back normal - nothing wrong with his kidneys, liver, etc. And nothing more learned about the new suspected mass. The doctor said that from the standpoint of his blood panel alone, Georgie appeared to be a very healthy doggie ... but we know that's not the case.

He's rebounded before so we are trying to remain hopeful --- but we also know he's been one very brave and strong doggie and fought back against a bad diagnosis for a long time already ...

Thank you so much for your sweet comments and praying for our Georgie!
