So sorry to hear you had a rough day. I don't know if you followed Zeropilot's thread on Big Bertha (his redfoot) who was sick for a looooong time and at one point she even looked dead. Well, Bertha has made a great recovery, but Ed was persistent like you in his efforts to care for her and save her. Hang in there. Be prepared for the worst but hope for the best outcome. Hope is beautiful and much needed. I hear all the time how resilient torts are. HugsThanks for asking!
It's been a rough day, actually. We're just on our way back from the vet now. I noticed his back leg was swollen this morning, and I automatically assumed the worst -liver or kidney failure...I kind of thought we were making our final trip to the vet :-(
But the vet was still optimistic. The swelling could be unrelated to organ failure... The fact that he hasn't moved at all in 1 1/2 months could be reason enough, I guess. So he got some fluids and we're to just keep doing what we're doing... Hopefully he continues with little steps forward because today nearly have me a heart attack!
