Chronicling the life of Clayton, Spenser and Scooter

February 19, 2007

Scooter is in the hospital with pancreatitis. Phillip stayed home last Friday to take care of Spenser (more on that tomorrow) and noticed that Scooter became extremely lethargic over the course of the day. He took his temperature at about five o'clock and it was 104° which is a few degrees higher than normal. The vet said to bring him in and an ultrasound plus blood work led them to diagnose pancreatitis. No one knows how he got it. Treatment is IV fluids and antibiotics, no food, so he has to stay in the hospital. We don't know if he'll be able to have chemo this week or not. We're hoping, hoping, hoping this is just a bump in the road. All we want is to have our Scootie home so we can snuggle him on the couch instead of on an exam table at the vet's office.
