Medical ups and downs

I've mentioned before that Luna has been suffering from chronic diarrhea for the past month.  We've been doing everything to get her back on track.  Bland diets, stool samples, the works.  Right now we are on another round of medications and are waiting to hear back about some blood work.  Fingers crossed that we'll find out what the problem is and get it resolved quickly.
Looking sad at the vet office.

We did have a scare on Sunday when Luna was very dehydrated and refused to drink.  We finally got some fluids in her, but in the afternoon she ended up vomiting.  After several hours of observation it looked like she was starting to feel a bit better.  She has held down her food since then and appears perky and eager to be part of what is going on.  This is very different from Sunday.  I spent all of Sunday panicking and feeling so stressed out.  I'm glad to know that she is feeling better.

Luna and her sock monkey.
I will be away for work for this week so Luna is staying at my parent's house so she can be monitored during the day.  It was so hard to send her off, but I know she'll be in good hands with my folks.

If she's been having that much trouble, I'd try fasting her for a meal, then feed her boiled hamburger and rice. Is it possible she has an allergy to the food you're feeding her? We've had that problem before.

I bet she's going to think she's the Queen of Sheba at your parents' house!
