- And got the T-shirt
I'm not sure what, if anything, blood work would tell you. It's very stressful for a pig to draw blood, and you have to weigh that against what they could learn from it.
I'd agree to x-rays if it were me. They're not perfect when dealing with soft tissues, but they're not by any means useless.
How old is she?
Apparently she had a stroke and a sudden drop in blood glucose while she was being observed. Doc says that she's not moving much, just sort of pawing at the air. Doc says that can be a sign of trying to pass away. She's being kept in hospital with permission to cross her over if the situation seems to call for it. If she wants to live I want to do everything I can but if she doesn't want to live I don't want to torture her.
Both of the docs I spoke with strongly encouraged me to let them keep her over night. I'm just in a bit of an emotional state and it is hard to be objective. They are good doctors. I know she is in good hands.
Thank you both for your thoughts and sympathy.
You made a tough choice but put her health first so she is where she can get the best care if she needs it.
Sending positive thoughts and prayers and hoping for good news.
