This is Bubbles' Mommy....sorry for the delay in updating Bubbles' diary, but it's been a busy week. The good news is that Bubbles came home last Saturday from her extended stay at the vet due to her kidney issues. At first she was still a little lethargic, but as a few days passed she started to seem like her old healthy self again!! We had a follow up visit at the vet's office on Wednesday and we learned that her BUN level had gone down all the way to 58 from a high of > 100 during her hospitalization. That's not yet normal, but the vet feels she WILL make a full recovery. She has a special diet (Mommy is cooking for her) and needs SQ fluids 2x/week for now.
We both want to thank the DOGSTER community for all the well-wishes, gifts, and especially the prayers.
This is Bubbles' Mommy....thanks to everyone for the Rosettes, well-wishes, and prayers. Thanks to Dogster too for featuring yesterday's diary entry asking for prayers.
The news is a little encouraging today. BUN increased a little since yesterday (but only a little. All other factors are back to normal. She's eating and peeing, so that's good. They're going to keep her and continue the aggressive IV fluid treatment...hoping its something that just needs to be flushed out.
