    My friend's dog Maisy has been in the ICU at our local University since last night. They can't figure out what she has, tests aren't telling why her joints are swollen, why she's painful, or why she keeps spiking a fever.

    Maisy is pretty much Crystal's whole life. If anyone has extra good thoughts, vibes, whatever you want... I know she (and all of her friends) would appreciate it.

    If you want to do some good reading to learn about Maisy, check out her blog.

    So very scary.

    Oh, how awful! That's so much scarier when it's fast an unknown. I will share the fundraising link on my Facebook.

    Most recent update is there isn't actually any joint swelling but they still don't know what's up. They are not suspecting it is the virus circulating in Ohio.

    Oh my gosh, how terrifying :(

    I was in dog communities with Crystal on LJ years ago...sent a few dollars her way to hopefully help defray costs :(

    Maisy is home. Her temperature has stabilized and her pain meds are working well. They did a spinal tap today where they found WBC. The sample was sent on to a pathologist and hopefully they'll have results soon.

    People have been amazingly generous. Much of her bill has been paid already. There are still expected expenses, but it's a manageable amount.

    Hopefully there are more answers soon!

    Vibes for the poor girl. Hopefully they figure out what's going with her soon.
