Molly at the vet
Its a very nervous day for us today. Our little Molly is at the vet having a liver biopsy performed. Her levels were very elevated and they wanted to check them. Of immediate concern is that they had issues with her blood this morning. They did some blood test and her blood will not clot like it should. I really don't know now how to react to that. Is that just a symptom of a bigger issue or is it something pointing to a potentially much bigger problem.
We only had two options, to give her plasma to try and support her blood so they could try the test again or just stop and take her home, knowing that if we can't correct whatever is wrong she is probably going to die. I hate things like this....
She is a very sweet dog. From the time we adopted her she has always been uneasy. We think she was probably abused as a puppy. I know she is there at the hospital now very scared. She doesn't know anyone and we aren't there to hold her and talk to her.
You know our pets truly do depend on us. They trust us to take care of them and protect them and I feel exactly the same way I did when our son had to have tests at the hospital. I'm worried and concerned for her. Now don't get on me and say "Its just a dog" and "How can you feel the same way you did about your son...". Of course my son is more important (as are all my family members) but that is actually my point. Our pets have always been part of our family. They always will be.
This is the hardest part of having a pet. They bring you such joy and happiness every single day. And then the ultimate end stares you in the face. I'm not saying this is the end for my little Molly. I pray it isn't. Its just that it hurts so much to lose someone that loves you so much.
Hopefully we'll be back tomorrow with better news about Molly and a restart of the 4at4 blog. Please pray for our Molly.
