Emma's very long day


Elsie looking in a mirror
Hello, Narnia, is my sister in there?

So Emma spent the day at the shelter yesterday because she wasn't eating. There was a bit of miss communication a couple of times, but in the end, once they had her they gave her some fluids and she started eating pretty quickly. The foster coordinator even sent me a photo of her eating which totally made my day.

My husband works near the shelter, so he brought her home when he got out of work and the reunion between Emma and Elsie was adorable. When I got home I saw the supplies they sent home with Emma.


They sent home a variety of foods to make sure she would continue to eat as well as three doses of fluid for her to keep things going. I adore that they gave me the butterfly infusion sets. It made giving fluids a LOT easier.  I opened up a jar of baby food and this happened.


Then I opened up a cup of chicken food and she dove into that as well. With all of that input, the next step was output and it was good. Feeling better, she then chased her sister around a little and then settled down to clean up and rest a bit. I am hopeful that this is the beginning of ... wait, no, I'm not silly enough to say this is going to go well.. but I can hope.

  1. We worried about her all day yesterday. We're so glad things are looking up, but we had no idea dehydration would inhibit appetite. That was very interesting.

  14. So glad to hear of the improvement! When I first heard of Emma, my heart swelled for her. My grandmother was Emma, and I was named (middle name) for her. Emma, you are in my heart. Be well.
