Copper is Sick Again

Her symptoms are starting again. She's able to lay down and rest next to me right now, but she's been getting up, is restless, having urgent bowel movements, and panting and shaking. It seems to be coming and going right now, but if it worsens, I'm afraid we'll have to put her to sleep this time.

The vet had said if another episode happens, it's most likely caused by whatever is making her organs enlarged (they mentioned pancreatitis and cancer as possibilities...it was her spleen and liver that was enlarged, so I would think it would be cancer if anything).

She's very bloated and uncomfortable....she keeps waking often and pacing the room.

I pray that this passes. Our little boy is going with his friend for an all day birthday party trip tomorrow morning, and I'd hate for him to not be here if we have to say goodbye to Copper. Our oldest daughter is also at a sleepover right now and won't be home until late tomorrow.

Just typing that losing her is a possibility is making me start to cry, so I'm not even going to go there in my head.

I'm going to try to carry her upstairs now and see if she can go to sleep up there.

I'll keep you posted on how she does.
