|Abbey back on bird watch duty Tuesday morning.|
Abbey had an endoscopy yesterday to try to determine the cause of her chronic vomiting. It was a long day for her. The procedure got started late, so we were at the vet’s office for most of the day.
Dr. Rios said she did well during the procedure. Her stomach looked “beautiful,” she said. Her small intestine looked a little different, but she can’t say for sure anything is wrong there. She took plenty of biopsies, which we should hear back on at the end of the week.
Dr. Rios thinks it is probably inflammatory bowel disease, but the biopsies could show something else, including cancer. She doesn’t really think it’s cancer, but it is a possibility, she said.
Abbey was feeling the effects of the anesthesia last night, but today she seems like herself. Apparently we were both exhausted last night. I slept like a log, and Larry said Abbey barely moved all night.
Thank you for all the warm thoughts and prayers sent for Abbey.
