bailey has been a bit under the weather lately and we've been seeing our vet on a weekly basis. he suspected that her pancreatitis has returned, so friday he took some blood to see what turned up. (she had quite the battle with pancreatitis, and beat it, almost exactly a year ago.) yesterday we got the results and it was confirmed, again. friday she had her first treatment, saturday and sunday she received fluids and first thing yesterday morning she had her second treatment. poor baby, it takes so much out of her. he inserts a catheter into her tummy and injects the medication directly into her pancreas. (i'm pretty sure that's what he said.)

she was so tired from the procedure, she slept all the way home. she was out of it most of the day and didn't perk up until around 4:00. she ate a little (very little) then went back to sleep. i had to wake her to take her medications then she went back to sleep. today we go back to the vet. i think he's gonna take more blood to see if there's any improvement. (her last battle with pancreatitis took 3 weeks of daily visits to bring her back.) doc had said it wasn't as bad as last year and that she should only need few treatments because we caught it early. i pray he is right. please keep her in your thoughts as she, once again, battles pancreatitis.
until we meet again my friends, stay safe-
