Dora Jean got very sick yesterday and had to be rushed to the Mr.Airy Vet yesterday after hours. He has kept her overnight and we haven't been able to come up with a cause for her problems yet. He did some blood work and sent it off today and it will be back tomorrow. At present, she is on antibiotics and fluids, still at his office. She has been sick, off & on, most of her life (15 months) but this is the most serious of everything yet. Dr. Truban is cautiously optimistic. I am praying, and hope that anyone reading this will ask the Lord to spare her life. She is not the most loving cat, and she is very willful and determined, but she doesn't deserve to suffer. I hope my next post will be a more positive one.
UPDATE: Dora spent 3 days at the Vet's office and this morning he told me that they found Leukemia. We had her put to sleep this morning to protect Shizuku, who we had tested this morning also, and she doesn't have it. I have had to make so many of these "life & death" decisions now. This all happened so fast. Rest in Peace, Pretty Kitty. You will be missed.
