Update on Baby, she is at the vet

I was able to find a rescue organization (of one)today to help me with her. I left work at 1:30, scooped her up at home and this lady, Diane, met me at the vet. Diane scooped her right up and held her....and promptly said she is sick....and I said yes.
Meowm was able to post this last night on a couple of sites:

Baby is now named Lily. She is FIV, FELV negative. Her blood tests were okay, she has a respiratory infection and her urine has blood and protein in it. She had a seizure before I left and they think she ate something bad.....but they have no idea what. She wasn't dehydrated and was running a fever. They are going to keep her in isolation probably for a week. I will call on Wednesday to see how she is doing. If she survives I will take her back into my home and at least foster her. I am not sure how feral she might be....I am not sure if she will tame down enough to be able to adopt out to someone, but time will tell.

Right now I am heartbroken and exhausted....Junior decided he had to talk most of the night for some odd reason and I didn't get much sleep. However I am off to a friends house to see in the New Year rather than sit at home and worry.

Lets hope and pray that Baby/Lily survives to see a better year and a better life. Thank you all for your support....I would have been a bigger mess without it.
