bean update 4 - worse before it gets better

The short story: it may just be an infection, or it may be her neurological problems [from the dog attack earlier in her life] worsening. She is now on the antibiotic and an anti-inflammatory; the vet warned me that it will get a bit worse before it gets better [in other words, don't wash the sacrificial blanket just yet]. If there is no improvement in 2-3 days, back to the emergency clinic she goes.

Just before taking her to the clinic tonight, she ate some baby food [vegetable chicken, mmmm mmmm]; while I was waiting for her, I soaked some of her dry food in water and she just ate some of that. A side effect of the second medication is an increased appetite and thirst, which is fine...except she is having trouble getting rid of food and fluids right now.

I have a feeling it's going to be another long night...
