Lea passed out shortly after having a bowel movement on December 30th 2:30 PM. She was so lifeless in my arms that day during that time. I'm not sure if she had a stroke or not, but she definitely passed out. Her breathing and heart rate were abnormal as well. She lost movement in her limbs and whimpered through the pain. She was okay afterwards, but her breathing and walking were not the same.
The next day December 31st, Lea was unable to eat all day long and she drank some water. She was still wobbly when she walked and she was breathing rapidly. On January 1st 2021, we took her to the Animal Hospital ER at 9 am. Shortly after 30 minutes, she was admitted right away. The doctor called us in the parking lot telling us that she has heart disease. She wasn't getting enough oxygen to her brain, her heart was enlarged, and she had fluid in her lungs.
Lea has been hanging in there and now as of January 2nd, the doctor is looking at discharging her today. The doctor said we should have about 9 more months with her, but I am hoping for more time with her since she's been so strong and resilient all these years.
My family and I were absolutely devastated of the thought of Lea passing away, but please keep Lea in your thoughts and prayers.
It's definitely a horrible situation to lose anyone in your family, especially our fur babies that we grow so attached to. We will be using the money donated from here to pay for Lea's hospital expenses and treatment. Thank you for your time reading this and hope you will all have a happy and healthy 2021.
