    Sorry to hear about your baby. It could be something wrong with the kidneys, liver, calcium levels in the blood, canine diabetes, or Cushing's syndrome. Please keep us posted as to what your vet found out with the blood test. We will keep her in our prayers and thoughts and hope for the best.

    Abby had her blood work and of course all the usual hugs from the staff at the office. They all love her There's nothing left to do now but stuff myself with chocolate chip cookies and wait. They are going to rush the results so should have them back tomorrow. I'm to keep her on the rice/beef and pedialyte and she added Pepcid once a day.

    The vet said that IF it's kidney disease there's a chance that we caught it early enough so it can be managed with diet and medication. I should be focused on that and stay positive. But Google says that signs of the disease don't usually show up until the kidneys have all but stopped functioning and those are the words that I can't get out of my head.

    Thanks everyone for your positive thoughts and prayers. Can I be greedy and ask that you keep my sweety head in your thoughts just a little while longer?

    Ugh! The only reason I can imagine what you're going through is that my bully was very sick too when she was a puppy (11 months, bladder/untreatable uti's), and I remember that Google was NOT my friend during that acute time (though it has been long-term), and I couldn't sleep while she was in surgery etc.... Be strong. It sounds like you're doing all the right things. I'm so sorry this is so scary! Keep us posted. I'll think extra positive thoughts in case you forget.

    Praying that you'll get good results! (And google's never your friend at these times, so keep your chin up!)

    LOL I should know better than to Google stuff. I had a spinal stimulator implanted in June. While I was waiting for the surgery date to get closer I stayed on the internet all day every day, I was addicted. Of course all you read are bad things. I mentioned it to my pain mgt doctor the day of pre-admission testing and yelled at me. He told me to stay off the internet or he wasn't going to do the surgery lol

    A fellow spiney! I'm having fusion surgery in May. BTW I applaud you for recording your consults with the vet. Will try that next time. That way I can Google when I'm calm, not when I'm crying.
