COCONUT IS BETTER! :)





I called earlier
than usual this morning and Dr. Gremmel said that she was still feeling bad, but looked better than the day before, but I couldn't pin her down to exactly HOW she seemed better than previously. I didn't quite believe it. Then I called again this afternoon before heading up to visit her, and got another vet, Dr. Warren, who said about the same thing. When I got there and went back to the cages, my pup tart really
WAS looking better! :) She was obviously happy to see me, got up and wiggled around a little bit and was ready to get out of the cage for me to hold her. Dr. Warren looked in and noticed that she had eaten about half of her food. It probably wasn't much, but she had eaten on her own, thankfully. She didn't have the IV back, either. Dr. Warren took her bowl away and brought her another one with about a tablespoon and a half of fresh food. But Coconut did not want to even get close to it. She (Dr. Warren) said Coconut would be coming home tomorrow. So - I hope that's right and she continues to improve and doesn't have any more throwing up or diarrhea. She still felt bad, though, because she was droopy, had very little energy, and was more than happy to go back in her cage and lay down, again.
I want to thank you all for your concern, thoughts and prayers. It really means a lot
to me! Oh, and in case you missed it, I wrote more about Coconut's illness earlier today in the comments under last night's blog entry.

She looks alert in the pictures. I hope she continues to do well and recovers fully.

Thanks, Sue and Laura. Sue in that one photo I warble-whistled softly to get her to look up.

I just called the vet and they said she is doing great and ready to come home. :)
