Bentley and I are back home after our third visit to the vet this week, $900 poorer. He definitively has "moderate to severe" pancreatitis on both sides of his pancreas, and apparently they don't really know what causes it. Nor do they have any specific treatment for it. All we can do is treat his pain and discomfort and hopefully the swelling will subside. So I have a variety of drugs, and will keep giving him fluids.
Tree is currently on pain meds and seems to be enjoying them, while I bought a bottle of wine for dinner.
It's a party up in here.
