Thank you to everyone for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. It really
means so much to know that there is a group of so many supportive and
wonderful people all around the world praying for my little furbaby.
I spoke to the vet this morning, and Toby is still on a drip for
rehydration, he is still not able to stand for very long (he can't hold
himself up) and he is not keeping any food down at all. The vet said he was
quite sick thru the night and basically we just have to let the virus run
it's course. I asked if he thought I should be preparing for the worst, he
said, "I think he will make it, we just need to stay on top of things".
Well, let me tell you, I really needed to hear the vet say those few words,
I'm really stressed out (I think all this bleach has gone to my head!!)
Patience is something I can do, I don't care how long it takes, or how much
$$ it costs, I just want my baby to be ok.
It's hard for DFS to understand the situation too, he keeps asking me if
Toby will die, and I've said I don't know cos I didn't want to lie to him.
He has been very difficult lately too, but I know that sadness effects
people differently. Hopefully he has a better day today.
Thanks again, EVERYONE. I will keep you informed of any new developments.
