The Saga of Old Dogs – Part IV
We are back from the Vet and had high hopes for weight gain and good liver numbers. Unfortunately, it is not the case.
Although she is up a pound, her main liver number the Dr. is concerned about is almost 6,000 now. I think the test is for ALT, or ALC. She was near 4,000 when she had the seizures when we boated to Village West, then for two months they came down to near 2,000. Now we have a sudden spike. We are doing all the things we can and the answer is simply “Old Dog.” She is now 12 years 6 months.
In doing a bit of Google it appears that with a spike it means rapid liver problems. So as long as she is not in pain, eating and pooping, all we can all do is love her as much as we can for the time left us all.
We are currently on a cruise for the Commodores Appreciation BBQ, for the International Order of the Blue Gavel (Delta District 19), and hubby and I have tons of work to do so we are going to be rather scarce until Sunday afternoon or Monday morning. Just want you to know why we’re not around.
