Poor Eileen... she can barely SEE yet she is still on her computer IMing me and answering emails and such.Please continue to keep Eileen and Lizzie in your thoughts. I really hope the vet is wrong or that Lizzie regains enough strength to make it through a hysterectomy. I know NOTHING about these things but I just feel so bad for Eileen.We are picking up Lizzie tomorrow-but she is still not eating. I hope she will when we get her home. I am bejng slow at typing-not my best anyway-it is a struggle to see the keys. The vet holds out no hope. She is also very anaemic andhe said she shoule really have a hysterectomy to clear up the infection-but probably would not make it through the surgery. He can't tell if the kidney problem is chronic or has been caused by the infection. She is still very playful and wags her tail. I dearly want to save Lizzie. I am hoping she will eat when she gets home-I may be dreaming. At least Derek (HUSBAND) can give the antibiotics by the shots and even intraveous feed her if neccesary.
(Lizzie.. 4 yr old yellow female... littermate to Apollo, my mom's lab. Eileen... breeder we got Ender from)

Healing thoughts and prayers.
Can they continue to keep her on sub q or IV fluids to keep the kidneys going? I have a cat on sub q fluids for more than a yar and she is stable.
bribe her with any low sodium foods ie hamburger chicken anything to get her to eat. they have nothing to lose by trying these things.
Prayers for Lizzie.
