Default Lillie has HGE

I saw the November thread, and got some info from that but
choose not to bump it for obvious reasons. I guess I don't
really need any help, maybe some kind words?

I'm trying to stay positive and not freak out, but after a 61
year lifetime of experience with all types of dogs, my third
GSD is the third one to present with something I've never
encountered before.

So far we're about $675 into it, w x-rays for possible foreign
bodies (due to a Christmas ornament/straight pin incident in
December, and me worrying one might have been missed back
then) a Parvo test for Mom's peace of mind, fluids and meds
and egads!

Seeing bloody vomit Tuesday morning and then two bouts of
bloody diarrhea yesterday is really, really worrisome. But
Lillie is helping ease my mind some, has a gangbusters appetite
(hey mom, this chicken and rice stuff is GREAT!) and enough
energy still for squeaky toys and tormenting her little kitty
brother.

All her blood work and pancreas test results are A-OK, too.

Anyway, thanks for reading!
