Some $800 or so later we've got a diagnosis of pancreatitis - apparently caused by eating rich food. Not sure exactly what set him off. shadowdaddy is getting Shadow back from the vet right now. I was supposed to try to get just a leetle more sleep (since we were up pretty late waiting for the lab work to come back), but it's not happening (I'm too busy coughing and listening to my heart race). Shadow is going to spend the day somewhere hooked up to an IV so his stomach can get completely emptied without dehydrating him. I'm going to spend the day feeling tired.
