Molly update

Thanks to everyone who passed on well wishes and thoughts to me and Molly. The vet kept her overnight last Monday and Tuesday. He ran blood work and found that she had mild anemia. The blood work indicated that she had an autoimmune reaction that was attacking her red blood cells. He put her on fluids, doxicycline and prednisone. I brought her home Wednesday evening. She looked better, moving around, but I still needed to take her a few dry kibbles in order to get her to eat. I did that a few times a day and the vet was happy enough as of Thursday morning. My vet was not in Friday and won't be back in the office until Tuesday. On Friday, I noticed that when she would go to eat or drink water, she would seem to gag and then stop eating/drinking. She has not eaten Saturday or Sunday as of yet. Does anyone have any thoughts for me? She seemed like she wanted to eat but the gagging (?) would stop her and she lost interest. I guess I will need to use a syringe to get some water in her.
