    Oh, I'm so sorry- we appreciate the update, but I truly hope you have a good outcome with her- that looks pretty serious from here. Up to now you've been doing so well with her, & she's what, only about 3 years old now?

    Yeah, I'm pretty worried. Trying not to think worst case since there's nothing to be done until the vet appointment. She's definitely not comfortable, but she's responsive to stimuli and taking sips of water.

    She's 3, yeah. There's no external injury from what I can tell, and her belly looks normal so not skin-related.

    The vet appointment was yesterday. She doesn't have internal parasites, so that's good. He said it felt like a 'hard bony mass', and he couldn't get any fluid off of it, so they're doing an x-ray tomorrow as they couldn't on Saturday. She's being held there until then. Right now we're thinking it might be a piece of substrate that got stuck in her throat and she couldn't manage to get down. We'll know for sure tomorrow.

    No one's said it with as many words to me, but I know that means surgery if it is a piece of substrate. I've set up her enclosure like she'll be in quarantine again, away from the other animals. He was concerned it would move down while she was with them, but considering its' been in the same spot for at least a week, maybe more, it's not going anywhere without help.

    She was very, VERY feisty at the appointment and wanted very much to be left alone, which is obviously not something we could do. She nailed me once and tried several times with the vet until he could grab her by the head, and she nailed herself in the side as well, the poor thing. She's very confused and just wants to be left alone, and I can't blame her. Baby girl that thing's gotta go, and it's gonna suck before it gets better unfortunately.
