I had my blood taken in preparation for seeing my cardiologist on Thursday this week. Dr. Hickey ( one of the on staff doctors ) called mom to discuss my report. Seems my kidneys are acting up again .. my BUN is not good it has gone from 87 to 145 and my creatines are not good.. they went from 2.2 to 3.2 ... so we are all very concerned about my decrease in kidney function. Now mom says they are just numbers .. and yes she agrees they are horrible.. but honest to pete, this past week has been my best ever... i am actually sleeping and letting mommy sleep and i have had no gastritis. Looks like they may be making a change in my medication .. and looks like another diet change may be in my future... Dr. Hickey says its very hard to try to figure out , how much of this is kidney disease, how much is caused from the heart not working well, how much is caused by diet. I was eating the KD diet .. but it gave me gastritis .. so mom has been home cooking me a low protein diet .. mom says she needs more guidance in this as she isn't any nutritionalist . We will give you an update after Thursdays visit .


Love,
Buttercup & Mom

p.s. Marielle has been doing well .. she was supposed to have another spinal tap chemo procedure but her numbers were to low.. so it is rescheduled for this Friday .. thank you so much for al the support and prayers..Huggies to all !

We are praying and thinking of you Buttercup. By chance is your momma on Facebook? Cause if she is there is a FB group that we belong to that is for people that cook for their dogs. If she is send us a private message with your Momma's name and we will send a friend request and then add to this group. Wishing you the best.
Woof, Buddy

Hi Buttercupi,

Coco and I are happy to hear that you stomach problems left you alone last week and hope any diet change won't trigger them again. We'll keep our paws crossed that the BUN numbers go back down and that your visit to the heart doctor has nothing but good news for you. We love you!
