Things here haven’t been going the best for Gracie. She’s been sick.
For the last few weeks she has been going down hill. She won’t jump up on the couch by herself. She doesn’t run when she’s outside. She’s gained a lot of weight suddenly.
I took her to the vet about two weeks ago. Her stomach was so hard, they didn’t know what to do so they gave her a laxative thinking there was a issue.
Then Saturday morning she was awful. She was shaking, had her tail between her legs, wouldn’t sit or even move. We rushed her to the vet and she began this strange panting. I was sure she was dying. Once at the vet she was quite a bit better. The vet ended up giving her a antibiotic and pain pills.
Saturday and Sunday have been long days. She doesn’t do anything like she used to. It’s so sad. She whines because she wants to be in the chair and can’t jump in it. She won’t bark when she wants to come in from outdoors. She doesn’t have the same spark in her eye.
Sunday I took her for a walk because she seemed to want to be out. I put my shoes on and she was back to her excited self wanting to go for a walk. We barely got going and I could see that it wasn’t going to work. I ended up carrying her home….it’s so sad.
We took her to the vet this morning. It’s a different vet. They have an x-ray machine and a more advanced facility. They requested that I leave her there so they can do blood work, x-rays and the like. The vet mentioned cancer, tumor, back injury and Lyme’s Disease.
I’m back home. It’s so quiet without her. I go pick her up late this afternoon to find out the results. It’s so quiet here without her.
