As I mentioned last night, Hudson the wonder dog is home, and doing much better.
Her breathing has cleared up after about a liter(!) of fluid was removed from
her chest cavity, her appetite is back, and she is very happy to be home. The
EKG was pretty grim however, confirming what we knew, she is beginning to suffer
from congestive heart failure. So her long-term prospects are poor, but at her
age, that was the case before she fell ill anyway. I'll be able do discuss the
results with her doctor today to determine the best way to make sure she doesn't
suffer any further as this final chapter of her life plays out. Thanks you all
so, so much for your kindness and indulgence during this very difficult time.
Hudson has two kinds of people in her life: the friends she knows, and the
friends she hasn't met yet, so you are all her buddies.
