I attempted a short outing for Sarah and some of her siblings early this morning before the heat came on.
By the time we got home, Sarah was nearly in tremors, panting profusely.
I wiped her down with a wet towel, positioned her in front of a fan and spoon fed her small portions of refrigerated food to help cool her down.
Later, we moved her to the couch, with a cold pack beneath the couch cover, a wet towel on her head, and a fan blowing on her.
It was 79 degrees out when I checked the temperature, after we got home. We walked, at most, 3/4 of a mile in 30 minutes.
It seems we are getting closer to Sarah’s dream of having a urinary catheter and a colostomy bag installed so she never has to leave the couch!
