Unhappy 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.

You are showing a ton of courage to have the tests done. The little Havies are much more at risk for liver problems so anyone with a tiny Hav is ultra smart to have them tested! Be strong and try to remind yourself Knowledge is Power!

Carole, I'm praying that everything will be fine with little Lulu. I'm bringing Mijo in a few weeks to redo the Bile Acids. We're in the same boat so I can't tell you not to worry. All I can say is that you have support here and we're all praying for the best possible outcome!
