Linus's tests are normal!!!

My vet just called at 8:45p (long day) and told me Linus's tests all look within the normal range except for alkaline (could be many things). She just said we will watch it, but his liver is good! Wahoo!!!

I hope this means he will not develop liver problems in the future, but I have to admit I do not know about the disease enough to know if it is well now, does that mean the liver will continue to function properly. I know it means there is not a structural issue though.

He becomes less of a man (neutered) this Friday. Hopefully that will go well also. He really does seem fine, just small.

Thank you for all your well-wishes; we really appreciate them. It is comforting to read them back during moments of doubt.


A couple shots to show SIZE DOES NOT MATTER!!! The second one looks like Linus is kissing Luke for trying so hard even if Luke did have to surrender to him.

Yaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy, Linus!!!!! Oh Karen, that is great news! I was wondering about the test results the other day, but never had a moment to write and ask.

From the looks of it, Linus doesnt' seem to have an issues with his size! LOL Too cute!!

That's is great news!

I'm wondering if Linus might want to look in the mirror though? He seems not to realize how tiny he is!!!

I am so happy for you and little Linus. He is such a gorgeous little boy, thanks for sharing his pics. Oh and we need a nice close up of his face.

That is awesome news! Congratulations. What tests did Linus have? Did he have the bile acid seriers--where blood is drawn before and after a meal?

Oh goodness what great news. I adore the picture of your grownup and baby furkids. Priceless as Missy would say.

I hope all continues to go well for "Little Linus". He sure is a cutie! I also have a tiny hav - but not as tiny as your little guy. She is now 4 lb. 14 oz. a 1 year. Like Cheryl, I'm also curious if that was the bile acid test they did.
