Blossom to pet emergency

Blossom's mom here. Around 12:30pm Blossom threw up. When I woke up this morning at 530am she was no where to be found. She didn't race up to the bed when the alarm went off, she didn't congregate in the bathroom and she didn't come for food! I couldn't find her anywhere. I did find a dead spider in the bathroom and immediately freaked!

She finally came out from her hiding spot-i have no idea where she had been. Then she threw up bile again. She was acting very lethargic-not her devious mischevous self! So I got in the car at 6am and off to pet emergency we went.

I took the spider with me-they think they have ruled out a black widow or a brown recluse. Now they think she might have ingested something. Her BP was fine, she seemed alert in her cage-watching an african grey-but they are going to xray her and get back to me.

The joy of pet emergency is that you have to pay up front from an estimate. Well, the estimate was $871.01-$1397.48. Not really what I had planned on doing this morning!

So $871.07 later-she remains in pet emergency, I'm waiting to hear about her xrays, blood work etc and we'll move on from there.

I'm now on my way to work so I can pay for this. But I'll do anything for my furry babies!

Oh how terrible!
I hope she's gonna be just fine and I hope you don't have to take a second job to pay for the ED Vet!
