Thanks Artemis! I've got my fingers crossed. And she's still very active and drinking. It's just the muscle loss in her back end that worries me, surgery-wise

She's home. The x-rays showed nothing at all. I'm treating for a partial impaction now, but I'm doubtful since something should have shown up in contrast, but there was nothing. I'll give this two weeks and then she'll go back and get further testing. The vet thinks cryptosporidia parasites, but I'm doubtful of that too, since there's nowhere she could have contracted it. Cryptosporidia is manageable but there's no cure, so if that's the case she'll be medicated for the rest of her life. The other option is gall bladder issues, for which the vet knows of only two successful surgery stories. So I still have no idea what's wrong. She's out and exploring now, as per doctor's orders. Hopefully it's an impaction of something containing no calcium and no density and it's all fixed up in two weeks.

That's hard. The not knowing is horrible. Hopefully at this point is something that will go away soon.
