The Critical Care vet just called after Minnie's ultra sound. The right side and center of her pancreas is greatly enlarged. It was pushing on the stomach and the couldn't tell if it was attached to the stomach or not. There also could be a mass hiding in the pancreas as well. After the ultra sound, the vet offered Minnie chicken strips and she ate them with gusto. The test now is to see if she can keep them down. I will call the vet back in about 5-6 hours to see if she was able to. If she does keep them down, then they'll offer her more later tonight. If she keeps those down, then she will probably be able to come home tomorrow morning for now. She'll have to have another ultra sound as a follow up in about a week to check her pancreas for the possibility of a mass and to see what was going on and to see if the inflammation is resolving. There might be a biopsy in her future as well. The vet said she was alert and feeling better. They have reduced the amount of morphine she's been getting for pain.
The vet was telling me an awful lot. I took a few notes, but I just hope I got the details correct!
So, she'll be spending another night there.
Thanks again for all the love and prayers for Minnie!
