Hi everyone.. we got Buttercups blood results yesterday and boy is it much improved ....Her BUN went from 165 to 85 , creatine 3.5 to 2.5 and her phosphorous went from 10.8 to 5.4 .. amazing that diet and medication change can make such a huge difference in 2 weeks.. things are still high but so much better. She may have a slight tremor but most days she isn't having them at all. The doctor says the increase in her medication is helping the blood carry more oxygen to her brain .. THANK GOD !! so for now we are on an up road !! woohoo ! If we can get her itching under control that would be a bonus.. we are switching antihistamines and he suggested trying plain old baby shampoo since the prescription shampoo and oatmeal shampoo doesn't seem to help at all.. Thank you all for all the continued support !

Now a quick update on Marielle.. she spiked a fever so she is back in the hospital .. hopefully just for a quick observation and pray there is no infection any where ! Her birthday party is Sat. so we hope she will be home in time ,, if not than a make up date is set for 2 weeks ..

Hugs to all ,
Pat & Buttercup

As I read your diary entries, I was so sad to see you weren't doing well. BUT - I'm so glad you had good test results and will keep praying for you and the itching!

Will also keep Marielle in our prayers!
