So my mom and I were wrong. Sort of. Maybe. At least for now.
The vet says Nike is doing OK and seemed interested in food today, though she didn't eat. Her fluids were good, though, and they decided to put her back on the hyperthyroid medicine she'd been taking a while ago. Her thyroid not working properly may have contributed to the liver failure, but it isn't that likely that the medicine will reverse it.
Still, my mom said she will likely live at least a while longer. If Nike eats at the vet tonight, my mom can take her home tomorrow.
I'm just happy I didn't have to do the final farewell I'd been dreading tonight like I'd been planning.
We're going to Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City tomorrow, and it will be oh-so nice to not feel as sad as I've been the past few days.
Happy weekend. (And thanks for your thoughts, everyone).
