Kendra Update

Kendra is in hospital tonight.  She spent yesterday afternoon and evening just lying outside on the concrete.  This morning she didn't want breakfast; but was tempted with some chicken.  She went back outside.  As her gums looked pale and her stomach was hard, we made a quick call to the Vet.  (Naturally, it's Sunday so we had to make arrangements.)

Kendra has blood and fluid leaking into her abdomen, and is having some discomfort.  After considering the three choices:  take her home, admit her to be put on a drip and receive medication or the big E, we left her overnight and will re-evaluate tomorrow.
