Justice and Pyometra
First of all, I'd like to thank each and every one of you who prayed so hard for Justice. She made it through the night thank God. I was going to call the vet first thing this AM before rushing over there with her cause I didn't want to stress her out anymore than she already was if they couldn't see her this morning. My vet opened at 8:00 this AM and by 7:40, I was out the door with Justice, I just couldn't wait any longer. When we got there, they had an opening for 15 minutes later, but the doc seen her and took us back right away. Justice does have pyometra and she is now at the vets and they will be doing surgery on her between 12:00 and 2:00 today during their lunch time. I am so grateful that he fit her in today, I don't know if she would have been able to go through another day like this. I am so scared, so scared to death. I just want her to be ok and come through this and make a full recovery. He listened to her heart and said it sounds really good (pyometra can cause heart damage if left untreated as well as kidney damage.) She has a little bit of a fever as well. He said they were going to keep her a day or two because he wants to make sure she's ok before sending her home. The cost of the surgery is between $170 and $200, a HUGE difference of what the ER wanted, they wanted $1100 to $1300 and had I had that kind of cash laying around, I would have paid for her to have the surgery this weekend. The ER vet also told me not to give her anymore of the Amoxicillion, that I was hurting her more than I was helping her, but my vet told me it was a good thing I started her on them and did everything we did this weekend, without it, she wouldn't have made it. I am so thankful to God he has gotten her this far and am praying he gets her completely through this. Please continue to say prayers for her and I will post with an update on her soon as I hear from the vet today. I miss her so much already and I'll be going out of my mind while she's not here at home.
