Exclamation Hedgie prayers for Emma!

As some of you may know by reading my post from Friday Emma became ill mid last week. She is still not eating or drinking on her own and still voiding large amounts of green mucous instead of feces. She was at the vet Thursday. Everything that can be done is being done. (anti-biotics, force feeding, gastrointestinal protectants). Tomorrow we are adding another medication and she will most likely have an ultrasound. This was extreme sudden onset and I am just beside myself thinking about what could be going on with my little girl. We will most likely be running bloodwork as well. I am just posting this for prayers for Emma. Before Tuesday / Wednesday this past week she was a perfectly healthy girl and hoping this nightmare will be over soon and she will be her happy healthy self again soon. Thank you to everyone in advance for your thoughts and prayers and I will keep you all updated.

I"m sorry she's still not doing well. I hope you guys can figure out what's wrong soon...it's horrible to have your baby sick and not even know what's wrong or how to fix it! I'll be keeping you and Emma in my thoughts. And please keep us updated!

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. So far Emma is doing "okay". She is still not eating on her own but taking her force feedings fairly well. She really enjoys her new medication so that is at least "a treat" for her in all this. I will make sure to keep you all updated with how she does. Sent some samples away for testing today so hopefully that gives us some answers.

Hey everyone, sorry for not updating the last couple days. Between work and caring for Emma and working 12 hour shifts I don't get to my computer everyday. So Emma is making some improvement. She is taking her feedings and medication very well and her stools are starting to be more formed. Her weight is stabilizing and she is still active at night. She actually ate a few of her kibble this morning while I was having my coffee beside her cage so hopefully she eats again tonight. Got some of her results back and so far they are all negative / normal. Just waiting on her fecal culture. Will let you all know how the next few days go. Thanks again for all your prayers and support. Not out of the woods yet but making progress for sure.
