March Update

Doo's mom here... I took Doo in last week for blood work and a urine culture. Unfortunately, her liver enzyme numbers went up (one of the numbers was in the 900s last month and this month its in the 1500s) and she still has e-coli in her urine. She's to be on antibiotics for the rest of her life. She also has gained weight. Between 5-8 lbs, depending on which scale we want to believe. (I took her to the holistic vet today and according to their scale it was 8 lbs, at our regular vet it was 5 lbs.) The holistic vet added pro-biotics to the mix of drugs/liquids/powders that I give her. She said everything she's taking now (the Exliptex, the milk thistle and the ursidol) is all given for the liver. She suggested I go see the oncologist at the specialty clinic to see if they would recommend a different type of chemotherapy, or a different type of drug comparable to prednisone or something in conjunction with it.

So, Doo doesn't look "good on paper" (number-wise) but she's still alert, eats, drinks, eliminates as normal, her eyes are still bright, she barks at people passing by (I can hear her barking outside right now) and she still has that bounce in her step when she comes inside. So, we just take things one day at a time and continue on as we have been. I'm still on ultra high alert to anything and everything she does or doesn't do, so I report anything new to our regular vet and update her on things. Her liver is still enlarged, she's still restless every once in awhile, and she has trouble getting up on the couch (I might have mentioned this last time), but I help her up and also help her into the car when I have to take her to the doctor. Minor problem in the big scheme of things.

That's all we have to report for now. We'll update if and when things change. Thank you all for your well wishes, prayers and POTP, they are greatly appreciated.
