Blossom Update...

Blossom is still at the pet emergency and will be until I get off work(around 10pm tonight) that is if the vet let's her go home. She hasn't vomited since this morning at home, but she's been on medication. She had xrays, blood work, urine-loads of tests. Her xrays showed no foreign bodies, her blood work was ok: she showed signs of dehydration-so she's on fluids, she had slightly elevated cholesterol and elevated liver enzymes but her urine had a lot of protein in it, which is what the vet was concerned and confused about. So she's going to run a urine culture to see if there is an infection. The vet did say that maybe she shouldn't have discounted the spider immediately-who knows what her reaction might be if the spider she bit was slightly venemous. But with the liver issues comes concerns about kidneys-but her kidney numbers were normal!

So that's all we know. The vet will try to feed her tonight around 6pm. And I'll be calling again to get more updates. And I'll be going to hopefully get her after work tonight!!!
