Memphis

Our pup Memphis is ill and is in the hospital. Yesterday, she experienced acute pain making movement difficult. The cause is not obvious and they're doing some tests to determine what's going on and how to treat it, including joint taps and more x-rays.

She's comfortable and not in nearly the distress she was in yesterday afternoon. She's eaten some and she's walked around a little and that's good.

Memphis will stay at the clinic overnight, and we hope to know more in the morning.

Update: they are narrowing down the problem...it may be an infection or possibly an immune mediated joint issue...we expect to have a better idea tomorrow.
