We went to pick up Wilma last night at 10:00 p.m. and she was worse than I feared. She's in pain. You wouldn't know it if you saw her - but we know her. We know what's normal for her. We know what all her sounds mean. In fact, she can't lie down comfortably. She's so tired, but doesn't want to lie down. When she does, she wakes up with a start and a very high pitched bark. It's so high pitched that it's more of a squeak. The x-rays couldn't find any squeak toy. I'm beginning to think that she didn't swallow a squeaky toy - but rather that Wilma is squeaking herself - in pain.
She was happy to see us last night - but she just wasn't right.
She tried to rest, but didn't want to lie down. Rather, she tried resting her head on BF's knee.
Finally, due to pure exhaustion, she did lie down for a minute - only to wake up with a fright and a high squealed bark.
We cuddled her, hugged her and comforted her. We decided to leave her overnight once more so she could be monitored and be on pain medication. This morning they'll do a sonogram and more tests to see what else might be going on if it's not a squeaky toy. I'll also be able to check in with her regular veterinarian who is a bulldog specialist.
Please wish us luck and keep Wilma in your thoughts and prayers.
