So, remember when I told you all that Violet was doing better? I think the second I posted that, she was bad again. She refused to take any of her medication, and the pain got pretty out of control. Her temperature went a soaring again. She was .02 degrees from heading back to the hospital. I just had to talk her though it. The last few days have been like that. Ups and downs. I thought she was starting to come around last night, but the night was pretty bad. No one really got any sleep, and although she was eating a little yesterday, she has regressed. I am on my own now. I hope the worst is behind us. I can handle a little fever and a small appetite, but not much more than that.
The terrible breath that accompanies a surgery like this has made me hesitant to look inside her mouth. I finally did yesterday, and was shocked to see huge sores on both sides of her tongue. Obviously, at some point she bit through her tongue on both sides, and the steaming, dryness, and whatever is causing that bad breath, infected it. I am pushing the antibiotics like crazy now, and am already seeing an improvement.
Anyway...how are you doing?
