Oh My!!! it's good you took her to the hospital.
The docs are thinking she has ileitis? Crohn's maybe? and a blockate in that area?
A throat swab would confirm if it's thrush...was she recently on prednisone or antibiotics?
Where the heck did they drain the fluid from exactly? Poor girl from all she's going through...
Please keep is informed as to how she's doing. I hope the doctors are able to get it figured out very quickly.
I hope they can give her some pain meds to ease the gas discomfort.
