I just wanted to post a note of thanks to everyone for the concern about Lilly. I guess it's no shock that all of my friends are animal lovers. But everyone checking in and asking about her progress has just meant the world to me.
Right now, I don't have much of an update, other than we are going in tomorrow or Thursday to get an X-Ray done to rule out anything else that could be causing this. The hope is that something else that is "fixable" could be causing her symptoms with her kidneys. But, this is highly unlikely. I couldn't live with myself if I didn't get all the tests I can done, though, just in case.
After this test, I will learn to administer the fluids at home--which will be a challenge with her. Lilly likes being the boss!
She has been acting like herself for the last few days, but she had gotten a fluid treatment at the vet last week, and those can make her feel well for a bit. I have noticed tonight that she is slowing down, and just seems to be moving more carefully. It just breaks my heart. Seven years has flown by with her, and I was expecting at least that much longer with her.
Thanks again, and hug all your fur babies for me!
