Kiana and Ultrasound

Kiana (my dog) has gotten worse over the past few days. I am going to call the vet in the morning. I didn't call last week because I thought maybe she'd get better, but she has increasingly gotten worse just since Thursday. We used to call her Chewy (like Chewbacca from Star Wars) because she sounded just like him. When I'd walk into the room, she was so excited to see me! I'd have to greet her first thing when waking in the morning just to quiet her down so she wouldn't wake the kids. She doesn't make a peep now; she only looks at me and raises her head a little. She is very lethargic, but she does still love to play with her ball! It is breaking my heart! I have tried to control my emotions in front of my kids, but I cry each time I think of her. TJ reassures me that she is eating (and pooping!) just fine, so it's more than likely her hips. I just hope that whatever it is, it can be taken care of at a reasonable cost.

I had my ultrasound on Thursday morning. Everything turned out fine. The technician immediately spotted the heartbeat, and the entire appointment lasted about 5 minutes. I haven't updated via email simply because I've been exhausted and not feeling well. Forgive me for keeping you in suspense!

Well, say a prayer for Kiana. I hope to get her in tomorrow, Tuesday at the latest. I'll update soon!
