03.12.2020 - Terrence Marks:
So, one day later how's Momo doing?

After a night at the emergency vet, we took her to our regular vet for further treatment. She has not responded significantly to 24 hours of IV fluids. Her various levels are still much higher than they should be. We knew this was a possibility. I'm glad we tried, though.

She's not going to get better. She's going to get worse and we don't know when or how much or how fast. There's always the question of how bad one is willing to let things get. We don't want her to suffer.

She's home now. We're giving her subcutaneous fluids but do not expect that it will improve the situation. It will, hopefully, keep her at her current level for longer.

Where do we go from here? None of the options remaining to us are appealing. But there are decisions to be made. We may never know if what we choose is the right one. We can only hope we choose it for the right reasons.

More prosaically, this is weighing heavily on our minds. It has been all of our thoughts and most of our day. As such, the comic is going to be delayed a bit. What we have here is a sketch from an untitled project.
