Just a quick update on Pitanga, it's been a really long week...
We have found a huge abcess on one of Pitanga's anal glands. It was growing to the inside, so even with regular rectal exams, no one was able to feel it until it was giant! It's still maturing, so a lot of pus will come out, however, we were able to remove about 20 ml of pus today, and Pitanga was a lot more confortable after that.
This huge abcess explains her high fevers and most of her discomfort. She is still in the hospital and will remain there at least until monday, and we'll see from there - this may very well have started with a grass seed!
Pitanga has asked me to thank you all for your love and cuddles, knowing you were all concerd made her feel loved =)
