Fiona is very sick.....

Ever since Fiona had that bout with conjunctivitis at the end of November she hasn't been herself. I had her back in to see the vet yet again on Tuesday. She has lost another 1/2 pound, putting her at 6.5 lbs. She is having blood work done and I should have the results back today. The vet did administer sub-q fluids and a vitamin B injection. Fiona snuggled with me that night, but yesterday she didn't want anything to do with me.

Fiona is sleeping on a blanket on top of the floor vent. She doesn't seem to be in pain, but she is lethargic and is showing no interest in food. I don't think she is drinking much either. She has been attempting to throw up, but all she gets up is clear liquid.

I am very scared and very worried. To be brutally honest, I am afraid we are losing her. She is only 7 years old. I am praying for the best but trying to prepare for the worse.

I will post more when I have some answers concerning Fiona's condition.
