Paws Crossed

 Early this morning, during the weekend, of course, Twinkie became really ill. I will spare you the details, but it's possibly colon-related. She was rushed to our closest emergency room. All the tests the vets have run so far do not show the cause for Twinkie's acute episode. The tests were run at the clinic, but if all goes well and she's okay overnight, tomorrow morning blood and stool samples will be rushed to a lab. Twinkie is on IV fluids, anibiotics, and pain medication. She is comfortable, but we all miss her and wish we could take care of her at home. 

We have selected Code 1 for our little Twink. That means that the hospital shall administer external CPR and medical resuscitation/defibrillation but NOT open chest CPR nor other extreme measures. To put it mildly, it's tough to make calls such as this one.

Paws are crossed for the Twinkster! (And I HATE it when they ask you about the resuscitation orders - I could never see making the invasive choice, but I hate being at the point that you have to make it at all. Hugs to you; it always happens early on a weekend morning, huh?)
