My baby is in the doggie hospital. She started not eating as of Saturday morning and by Sunday evening was very mopey and wouldn't touch any food mom tried, including tuna! We could tell she was not her normal bouncy, playful self. So, on Monday mom took her in to The Vet to see what was up, thinking it was probably just something upsetting her tummy or GI tract.

After running lots of tests they found that the problem was with her kidneys. Her BUN level (normal range is 10 - 20) was 75. And, her creatinine level (normal range is .6 - 1.2) was 7.9. She also had high protein and both white and red blood cells in her urine. So, we are hoping it is just an infection that is causing all this.

She is spending the night at the doggie hospital getting IV fluids and antibiotics. The vet is hoping that her BUN and creatinine levels come down by half by morning. If not half, hoping that they are at least dropping, meaning the fluids and antibiotics are working. If they are not coming down, well, we just aren't going to think about that.

This is the longest the baby has ever been away from us since she came here a little over 3 years ago. Mom is having a really hard time without her here and I have been a little mopey now myself wondering when she will be home. We all sure hope it's very soon!

So, if you could all keep my baby Khady in your thoughts and send some healing vibes her way I would sure appreciate it. We all need our baby home where she belongs!

Ok, i'm not sure if my comment went through. It's hard to comment from here for some reason which is why i rarely comment. But again here goes:
