Gracie's Blood Work IS NOT Good!! Ahhhhhh!!!!

OK - I've got a busy day with my kids, and I'm dying inside right now. Real quick before I run for the day. . . I took Gracie in for her spay today, and they ran blood tests. Her results did not turn out good. Her liver enzymes are high and her red blood cells are small. Could be a liver shunt they say. She is getting the Bile Acid Test today instead of the spay until they learn more information. This is killing me. She is our little girl!!!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! We will most likely be doing an ultrasound in the next day or two. I think the Bile Acid test will be back tomorrow. I will keep you posted. But for now - I've got to run to Orthodontic appointments and P/T Conferences, etc. Bummer - I hate being busy when I'm really upset. Please keep Gracie in your prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about Gracie~try not to get too upset until you have more information/results. It may not be a shunt, maybe MVD, which can be controlled thru diet and suppliments/vitamins. But I am so glad you had the bloodwork done prior to her spay.
Keep us updated on her results and feel free to email me if you like~

Poor Gracie - you and she are in our prayers that it's something that can be controlled through diet. So glad you had her tested first.

Karen,

I'm sending prayers out for you and Gracie. It's devastating to hear news like that and waiting for the results feels interminable. You may be sorry you have a busy day ahead, but I think you're better off. At least your mind will be occupied with other things part of the time.

God bless.

Once again, reading such sad news makes me go numb!

I know what you mean about hating to do OTHER stuff...me, too. Only good thing is that it makes the time go faster.

Power puppy prayers your way
