I don't mean to come across as unfeeling for your situation... But I think the best choice at this point would be to let her go if she doesn't show any signs of recovery.

I think that's the symptom of having a stroke ... Yes, if her life quality is decreasing, her condition deteriorates.... I'm afraid it's about time for you to release her to the bridge...

I have to agree with the others it does sound like she isn't going to recover, it is the hardest decision that you will have to make, but she is relying on you to do the right thing, you don't really want her to suffer any more than necessary. My heart goes out to you, tears are rolling down my face as I type this, but it is an evil necessity! I am so sorry for you

Default update on patches

thank you to all of you. during the night patches got up and walked around.she sat for awhile and started showing interest in food and water she has been up alot today she looks at me when i call her and comes to me.it takes her a while but she gets where shes going.she still is not eating or drinking on her own but she does swallow milk from a syringe.i called the vet she told me to bring her for more fluids tomorrow.she is not in pain and alert so i guess ill have to take it one day at a time.as long as she is doing ok and not in pain we will keep tring.she has always been a fighter.please pray for her.
