change in plans

We were supposed to go to Pittsburgh this morning, do some stuff, and spend the night (a mini-vacation, if you will). However, when we woke up this morning, Lizzy was having problems getting around (she was 100% fine last night). It was pretty obvious that the problem was with her back. So, we canceled our plans, called the vet, and went to our appointment.

They took x-rays and found out that she has two herniated disks. Left untreated, it could lead to paralysis, which would not be a good thing. The vet gave her a steroid shot and sent her home with some steroid pills. We should see some improvement with her by tomorrow and if there's no improvement by Monday, we'll likely be making another trip to the vet. Let's hope that is not the case.
