Lily Update: In the hospital
Just a quick update on Lily. She started vomiting last evening and we ended up having to take her to the emergency clinic. They kept her there overnight on IV's and she was transferred to the hospital this morning. Her lymph nodes are even larger this morning. Almost the size of golf balls on both sides. The labs that were done before the vomiting started showed an increase in her BUN at 33(normal is 25), but her creatinine is normal. Her Alka Phos is also elevated to 299, but she is a growing puppy so that isn't unexpected.
She looks terrible right now. She only weighs 6 pounds and after all the vomiting she is just skin and bones this morning. At this point, they don't know what is going on. Doing repeat labs and x-rays this morning. We should get the cytology report back this afternoon and are hoping that gives a clue as to what is going on.
Needing lots of positive thoughts this morning.
