Ariel Update

Thanks to everyone for their words of comfort. Ariel is still at the hospital. Her fever was down last night, but back up this morning. They are saying it is a viral upper respitory infection. She is still receiving an IV for fluids and an antibiotic as a preventative measure. The vet said her tummy felt better today. After a 2 hour wait I finally got to see her. She seems much better than yesterday, but still a little wobbly. I tried to get her to eat, at the vet's suggestion, but it was a no go. I was not surprised. There were too many strange sounds and smells. She is not the best eater under ideal circumstances.

They wanted to keep her at least another night, so I agreed. I don't have the same peace of mind as I would with our regular vet, but if she is sick, I guess she is better off there until the ER closes and the vet opens Tuesday morning.

Thank you also for the invitation to tonight's party. It has been an emotionally exhausting weekend so far, so I am hoping for a good night of sleep tonight. Please enjoy the celebration, and I will post an update tomorrow. Happy [and healthy and safe] New Year to all!!

Glad to hear they know what is wrong with her. Since she can't be at her regular vet, this is the next best place. And you can take her tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday.

She and you are both in our prayers. I am just so happy to learn the cause, and that it is treatable. Your imagination runs away when they get sick and you don't know what is wrong.

You get some rest tonight and get ready to get Ariel back home 'next year'. That's the best New Year there is.
