The ultrasound showed NO LIVER DISEASE AND NO SHUNT!!!! PRAISE GOD!!!! Actually, it showed that she's a pretty healthy little girl. He said her gall bladder and two lymph nodes were "slightly" enlarged, but he didn't see either one of those being a problem.
Her temp was still 104.1 when we got there, but like Sandra said, it could have been because of the long ride, and maybe she was anxious. She didn't act anxious, but it could have been.
Like I said, yesterday, she brought her toys to me wanting to play tug, and she ate the entire tv dinner... and today... she had TWO VERY GOOD POOPS!!! Also, when we went to meet up with Sandra at JoAnne's, she met Odie for the first time, and she chased him all around the yard. Odie is beautiful.. blonde, soft eyes and demeanor.. I think he may be part collie and part golden (maybe).
So, with all those things combined, one of two things is happening, either she's over the worst of it, or God healed her like He did me.
The Specialist did suggest more bloodwork to re-test her liver values and also to test her for Lepto. Even though she was vaccinated against it, and there is a slim to none chance of her having it, it doesn't hurt to test.
I am so glad we went to Metro. Not only very caring people but also very honest. He actually could have told me anything he wanted to to pump up the bill... but instead, he didn't charge me even as much as I was quoted, and then he gave me a Senior discount (sometimes it pays to be old LOL). It was soooooooooooo worth getting that test... maybe I'll actually sleep tonight.
Thank you all for all of your prayers. I really believe that God heard them all and answered them for my little girl.

Hi Wishers... The vet told me to take her off Metronadazole and give her Ammoxicillan and Baytril instead. I'll be getting her prescription tomorrow. She's suppose to take it for two weeks. I hope it works.
Thanks for checking on us and sending up prayers.
