    Well she made it through the night and although her breathing is laboured she has quite a spring in her step:).

    I`m really surprised that she got through the night and her breathing really does sound horrid, I slept on the sofa with her although i didn`t do much sleeping but Chloe did.

    Her tummy is so so badly swollen this morning, i didn`t think it could possibly swell any bigger than it did yesterday!

    The vet is going to drain the fluid from her tummy this morning, i just hope Chloe makes it... its going to be interesting to see just how thin she`ll be without the bloated tummy, I know she`s lost weight because her collar hangs of her neck even on the smallest hole!

    I spoke to the vet last night and they are concerned that she`ll not make it through the anesthetic so they are going to try and do it without:eek6:, I`m not sure how i feel about that because i don`t want them to her my baby girl..

    She`s booked in to be admitted at 9.30am... she has to have 3 heart scans ( from different positions ) fluid drained, blood tests and urine tests (again ) and scans of her liver and kidneys.. if any other organs are damaged other than her heart the vet said they would stop all tests to advice to pts..

    I just want my baby out of pain and discomfort and back to her normal self!

    She made it through the night though so that shows she still have plenty of fight in her yet!

    So glad she made it through the night. I fostered a cav that had heart failure and she had to have fluid drained which they did under sedation. Some really kind person homed her and she lived for a couple of years. When she first swelled up i was terrified it was during the night and i know what you mean by the breathing being terrible.Good luck today i will be thinking of you
