Starting a new thread as the title of the old one sears my heart. She is stable today, gums much pinker. She is quiet and subdued though. Does not appear in any pain or discomfort, just tired. I hope it's just the anemia but I don't know. She's eating and drinking and pottying normally. Sleeping quite a bit but she still follows us around some too. I don't know how much time we have bought but I hope we can get through this week as I am having to address some health issues myself (not super serious). I spoke with my vet and she thought average survival time might be 1 - 3 weeks. Although she has another dog patient who has been stable on the chinese meds for over 2 months. So grateful beyond words that I retired Dec 27 and now I don't have to worry about leaving her for work. Hubby and I will tag team any errands that need doing. Today I'm cooking the Thanksgiving turkey that I never did on the holiday (I was working) so she will get the boiled up liver to help boost her, and I've been giving her bone broth which she loves. She also ate her Sunday eggs with gusto. She is such a trooper. Did I mention I love this dog?
