Sydney - couch

Sydney... :(

I'm so sorry that I haven't been around in a while, but Mark & I have been trying to deal with the news from our vet about poor Sydney... :( Apparently she's very ill again and we fear that she has the same ailment that she had four years ago when she almost died... Her blood levels and yellowing of her eyes and gums looks like she's having liver failure again...

We don't understand it though, because this time she's pretty upbeat and not ACTING any different - the only thing is she won't eat her regular dog food (though she will eat boiled chicken and rice) and she doesn't seem to be drinking water too much these days... :( Other than that she's running around the house, playing with her toys, barking at the neighbors, etc... The vet told us that by looking at her blood work she should be having seizures and be in a coma by now... They also recommended we hospitalize her... :P

I don't know what else to say... Sydney's our baby and she means the world to us... if you could spare some good thoughts for our fuzzy baby, we'd really appreciate it - she's already been through so much in her life. :(
