We have had another rough evening & night (it is almost 11:30 PM here) and Lisi has been in lots of pain & vomiting & shivering again. I am wondering if she may have concurrent pancreatitis. I had written her vet earlier tonight but things have progressed since then. She is even vocalizing pain & her body has been "jerking" some. W/the crisis I don't want to take her to the ER---you have to admit her & I don't think that would work for us or her. I don't want to take her to my vet to leave her w/someone at the curb-side either, but at least they won't admit her. I may do that in the morning if we can get in & ask them to run a snap test for pancreatitis. Please pray for wisdom. I have Kitzel sleeping in the guest room w/Dwt. as he was very upset and he should not be stressed w/his heart. These are trying days for all of us, so thank you for any prayers for wisdom for us. I did give her gabepentin but she vomited it up after about 5 minutes. 馃挃

Heavenly Father, I know you are right beside Sandi may she feel your presence, you promise you will never leave us or forsake us, Sandi needs your wisdom, she needs your peace that passes all understanding. Lord make things so clear in Sandi's spirit that she doesn't question herself but she acts on your leading.
Father go before Sandi, prepare the vets, open their eyes, give them insight
Lord wrap your arms around little Lisi, relax her body dear Lord, help her to take the pain meds and keep them down.so she is able to rest.
Lord oh my God, I praise you and thank you for hearing my prayer
In Jesus name I pray
Amen

Sandi, I send you this scripture
MATTHEW 18:: 19
AGAIN I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT IF TWO OF YOU AGREE ON EARTH AS TOUCHING ANYTHING THAT THEY SHALL ASK,
IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.


Sandi I will be praying and watching for a update.
I wish I could hug you, hold your hand and pray, our spirits are connected God hears us dear friend
I love you

Thank you to those who kept the "night-watch" w/us---for your kind words & prayers. I do not take them lightly & so appreciate each of you.
Lisi seems better this morning but I am guarded as I am learning the cycle of this disease---it is relentless & painful to watch. I don't want to give up on her---she is a fighter, but I find it difficult to see her suffer so much. I am at a complete loss to know, in my own wisdom (or lack thereof) what is best for her. When her little tail wags the world is bright & shiny. She seems to know how much we care.
I will do my best by her, when I decide what that really is. Your company in this journey helps me to be stronger.

OK, now that I have had some coffee I put my brain back to work & decided to call the vet clinic to see if we can get Lisi in for a cPLI (pancreatitis) test. No one answered the phone so I may have to text.

I talked w/local vet clinic (not my vet but her office) & they are sending us to the ER clinic again. We will leave in just a few minutes. It is on lock-down so we will just give her up at the curb & she will see an internal med. specialist who will advise us. I wanted to do a cPLI test but they don't do them---they would probably want to do another abdominal US instead; then we would be advised if she needs to be admitted or if they can just give her meds to bring home to make her comfortable.
Please pray w/us for strength, wisdom & the best path for Lisi (she did vomit her breakfast after I last wrote---a Tbsp. of soft cooked oats.

Poor baby :'( We're all suffering with you and Lisi. I'm so glad she's seeing the ER vet today. I know you don't want to let her go after all she's been through, but maybe it is time for her to rest. I say this with love. Sending you gentle hugs.

Oh, and of course, I'm praying big for Lisi and your whole family. I'm so sorry to hear her condition is taking such a toll on Dwight :(
