Default Lethargic, not eating much, heavy breathing.

I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas of what's going on with my hedgehog. There was no vets currently opened so I have to wait until tomorrow to make an appointment to take her in.

For the past few days, Wendy has had a loss of appetite and eats very little. I noticed a huge difference when she ate only half of a very veggie/bug-full meal. She was running fine yesterday but today I noticed some behaviour that was very concerning.

She was lethargic, looks much thinner, and there's heavy breathing. I also noticed she walks a little funny. I know she's not wobbling but it seems like her back legs don't have enough energy to lift her or something.

I syringe fed her some bananas with water and she took it fine. Nothing has changed in light schedule or temperature.
