Please pray for Sophie. She's at the vet right now.

Sophie can't stand up. When she tries to stand she just drops straight down on her belly with her legs tucked in like she does when she relaxes. Then she'll fall over to her side with her legs sticking straight out.

I hadn't noticed her limping or anything before this started to happen late last night. She's not grunting in pain or anything and everything else appears normal. Although for a girl who is always hungry she has not wanted her food. She was able to go to the bathroom this morning, but it would have taken everything she had to stay standing up enough to go without my help.

I'm not positive what's going on, but I'm thinking it's her knees as she does have LP, but it has never bothered her before. I don't know of anything she did to injure herself and she appears to be mentally alert.

I had to drop her at the vet this morning on my way to work and as luck would have it my usual vet is not on duty today. :( I wish I could have stayed, but I couldn't miss work to stay with her. :( So, I'm trying to work while I sit here on pins and needles. I'm probably going to totally screw up my bosses' schedules - should probably stop trying to update their calendars and set meetings until after I hear from the vet.

Please say a prayer for my Sophie - she's my soul and it tears me up that I had to leave her by herself. :crying: Will update as soon as I hear from the vet.

Thank you!

Linda

Linda -- I'm so sad to hear this. I know you must be going crazy waiting to hear back from the Vet. I know that I couldn't concentrate if one of mine was at the Vets either.

Sending mega prayers for Sophie :prayer::prayer: and lots of hugs for you. :grouphug:.

Oh Linda, praying for dear Sophie. Don't beat yourself up about not being able to be there, they will take good care of her, and probably run test and you wouldn't be able to see her anyway. This will help the vet get a really good look at Sophie.

Praying like crazy for the both of you.

Poor Sophie, I really hope she is okay and it's not something serious. I'm sure they are taking great care of her at the vet and will of course call you when they find anything out. I know you wish you could be with her right now, but there isn't much you could do as you probably wouldn't be able to stay right with her the whole time anyway. You're both in my thoughts, please update us when you hear anything. XOXO
