Poor Louie!

Normally I try not to write about topics that are strictly personal. This time I just can't help it. I am so, so bummed out because my darling Louie has been very ill. He's normally a very spunky guy, but after receiving a Lyme Disease vaccination this weekend he became very sick. He couldn't keep food down, and had no energy. Eventually, he couldn't even get out of bed. That's when we knew something was very wrong.

So, yesterday, about 24 hours after the vaccination we took the little guy to the emergency clinic. Turns out it's a good thing we brought him in. He was so dehydrated that they had to keep him there overnight! Also, he may have Addison's disease - which is a disease of the adrenal gland. We're going to find out the results of his test shortly. Anyhoo, I get to pick him up at 5pm today. I can't wait! Our house feels so empty without him. A house without critters is not the house for me.

Here's hoping for a quick recovery!
