Prayers for Plummy...
October 21, 2010

Please send some prayers and good thoughts for my poor Plummy.

Her kidney values have gotten worse, her BUN number close to doubled over a 1 month period. She went from 80 which is already high to 149! Her CREATIN and Phosphorus is also super high. The Dr. wants to admit her tomorrow AM and begin IV cath fluid therapy and a phosphorus binder. And they want to teach me how to give her Sub C fluids at home.

Knowing that kidney failure is not reversible and that most dogs don't even present with symptoms of kidney failure until the kidneys are already 85% non-functioning (Plummy).....the prognosis does not look good.


Let the roller coaster ride begin. again.

My poor little doll.
