Arghhh, it's time for Lulu's blood test.....
Well, I just made an appointment for Lulu to have a complete blood profile and bile acid test. She goes in Thurs. AM at 9:00. Lulu will be a year old on May 29th so it is time. As many of you know, I am dreading this day. For those of you that don't know, Lulu weighs about 6.6 lbs. When she was 4 1/2 months she wasn't growing (4.4) so I had a BAT done along with a complete blood panel. Her alts were perfect but her BAT was pre 62, post 15. (I know, backwards) I went to 2 internal specialists (one at UC Davis, San Diego) and they both were not concerned, said to feed her protein and to have the BAT re-done in a month. The next BAT was normal.
She has never been sick but because of the advice of forum members I am going to again have her retested.
I HATE to do this because I will worry so much but in a way, it could alleviate my worry's. She has been eating raw for 2 months now because my thinking is that if she has a liver problem maybe I can force the tests to show it. I have to laugh when I think of all the times I have told other forum members not to worry. Not easy is it?
Well, I should have the results on Friday. Please pray.
Vinny, Lulu, Gabby and Richie too!
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.
