So... Been to the vet several times during the weekend. Exhausting. The doctor guesses cancer metastasis to the brain, although a stroke is not impossible. Stella is now on drip, two rounds already, and the third today. she has improved quite a lot - she is mostly able to get up and lie down herself, she can walk quite a bit without falling, and she can walk almost in a straight line, although she looks quite drunk.
Her involuntary eye movements have become quite a bit better.
She loves to lie outside in the grass, and she shows some signs of comfort (rolling a bit in the grass, wagging a bit), and no signs of pain as we can see.
She sleeps a LOT though, and doesn't want to eat very much at all.
The way it is now, we keep going, but it is on a day-to-day basis. she might get better, she might get worse still. Our other dog died from what we believe was a heart attack (in December 2018), and we never had the time to take the discussion if to help her leave or not, so this is the first time we face that situation. I wouldn't want to see her become apathetic, she has been such an active and strong dog, but probably sleeping a lot at this point - 2 days after the attack - is something to expect. But good, lord, I'm tired. She has just recovered magnificently after a lung infection (probably connected to cancer) that threatened to finish her off. It is a miracle that she got through, and she was just back to almost full force again, and then this comes....
