Her swelling has decreased a bit, but overnight she required a blood transfusion because of high anemia (this on top of the plasma transfusion). She's doped up on pain meds, and we'll go see her later today.

- Her red blood cell count should be in the high 30-40's. It was 13. post transfusion its 22, not perfect but an improvement

- The top part of her noggin is apparently less huge, and now she's more a of bullfrog with a giant swollen throat

- Still not eating, blood in the stool, blood in the urine, but both expected given kidney damage/some bleeding from the lower intestine

- on a lighter note, the blood transfusion was free, because she's small and they had an open bag

Thanks for the update! I certainly hope she's pulling through! Are there many rattlesnakes around where you are?
