I'm blessed and overwhelmed by all your prayers for Bobby. I know I haven't been very active here with my new work schedule, but y'all are great people.
Update: The vet called after having run his blood work this morning. Still elevated enzymes, but instead of being 1500, they're 990. Much better, especially for just being overnight. We have put shunts further down the list, and I just don't think lepto is an issue out here, so it sounds as if he may have ingested something -- mushrooms or sugar-free gum are two possibilities. My husband has seen a couple mushrooms on the lawn recently after Hurricane Sandy came through, but he's never shown any interest in them. However, he may have accidentally gotten one when rooting around in the leaves or hunting for sticks (his new best toy). As for gum, we don't chew gum here, but we are on lots with no fences, and we are bordered on the front by a sidewalk. There's no telling if somebody may have tossed their gum. Something I never knew but have learned quickly.
They recommend a further injection of something (sorry, everything sounds like blah blah blah when you aren't medically inclined AND scared) at 5:00, so they say we should be able to get him at 6:00.
Thank you again for all your prayers. I know they were answered. <3
