We received some promising news today, her bloodwork improved in just 26 hours, so it looks like we caught the disease right as the kidneys were starting to give out. She'll be in the hospital until at least Wednesday, likely longer, until she's ready to start taking some meds orally (her tongue needs to heal and she needs to be eating regularly).
>140..... 64.9 - BUN
4.9...... 1.2 - Creatine
8.7...... 4.9 - Phosphorous
10.2..... 8.6 - Calcium (likely due to watering down the food)
6.2...... 5.3 - Total protein
BUN is high but no where near where it was. Creatine is normal level, Phosphorous is getting close. Calcium and protein are low but that's likely due to needing to water down the food until her tongue heals.
We appreciate all the warm wishes we've received so far. I know we haven't been on dogster much since Precious passed just over two years ago, but we still think of you often. (((hugs)))
