Khady Update

Hey everyone. Khady's mom, Jan, here. Thank you all sooo much for your thoughts, vibes and prayers. However, things are looking bad. Khady's BUN went up from 75 to 93 and her creatinine went up from 7.9 to over 10. This means the fluids and antibiotics are not working and her kidney's are continuing to fail.

The vet is going to do an ultrasound in the morning to see how her kidney's look, and also check her BUN and creatinine levels again. Basically, what this will tell us is how much time we might have left with her. Only way to know for sure what caused this is to do a biopsy, but I will not put her through that when it will not change the outcome. To say I am devastated would be an understatement.

I did get to go visit her today and spent some time with her. She was extremely excited to see me! She has never spent this much time away from home and I'm sure she is very confused about what is going on. I snapped this picture of her laying on my leg while we had our visit.


We had a nice hour and a half visit and then I went home for a while so she could get back on her IV fluids. I did go back about 45 minutes before the office closed and took in her favorite blankie that she always lays on when she is on her spot on the couch and her most favorite toy - her squeaka ball! I put the blankie on the floor and lay down with her and we just snuggled together until closing time. Leaving her there again was so difficult. But, I know that is where she needs to be so she can continue to get her fluids. I am so hoping for a miracle and will continue to pray for her.

And, thank you so much to all of you who are continuing to pray for her too. You have no idea how very much it means to us both!

Jan

Praying that God will spare her. We lost our Missy back in August of this year and Beth lost her Montana this month. I don't know you personally but please give you sweet baby a hug & kiss from the Wolford clan in Hertford, NC.

I'm glad she was in good spirits and happy to see you. Such a beautiful girl is no doubt getting lots of special attention from the staff. Try to get some rest for yourself. This is just almost too much for you to have to bear.
