Our cover girl Slava has some good news to share.
Slava is out of the hospital, off the sub-q fluids and having only two messy but controlled bm's daily. Too much info? Just wait.
She has digested blood in her stool, which indicates that there is bleeding high in the intestines.
However, the awful fresh bleeding is no longer in evidence, and the near constant explosions are a thing of the past!
Slava is now on a new steroid to see if the inflammation that may be causing the continued bleeding high in her digestive tract can be calmed down enough so that some healing can occur. The doctor has hopes that the bleeding can be stopped, but if it
turns out that Slava's condition is chronic, there is treatment that can manage the problem.
Slava's foster mom said her vet has asked her to send her some photos of Slava, and that her little boy asks about Slava. The vet techs think she's just wonderful. Her foster mom says that now that she's feeling better, she is a lovely, affectionate, happy girl!
We are so grateful for the contributions to Slava's care we have received. Almost half of the costs of her week's stay have been received through PayPal. It looks as though, even if her condition isn't curable, she will survive this awful spell and can go on to bring happiness and comfort to some very lucky family!
Thank you again for supporting our girl in her time of crisis!
