late night with Lilly

November 19, 2008

Last night (or should I say early morning) Miss Lilly started having an allergic reaction to something.  At first we just thought her face and ears were itchy and so she was scratching. (We were in bed at this point)  Then she started rubbing her head on any surface she could find frantically.  So, I turned on the light to see what was going on with her.  Her face was red and inflamed and her nose and eyes were swelling up.  I went and hopped on the computer to see what I could find to do and words like “anaphylactic shock” and “death/fatal” kept showing in all the search results.  So…we decided to take her to the emergency animal clinic.  By the time we got there she was breathing heavy and panting and drooling all over the place.  They pumped her full of steroids and antihistamines.  She is okay now.  Her face is still irritated and she is on Benadryl.  We still don’t know what happened to her.  I think she got some kind of bug or spider bite.

She is currently lounging in our bed.  I haven’t been able to make it yet today because she has been in it.  She looks pretty pathetic!
