Today we went to visit Hunter at the Vets, he looked better than when I brought him in, he really needs to eat though. We did not get the results today from the tests that were sent away, although the treatment would not really change it would probably give the Dr. a better idea of his prognosis. Hunter was very happy to see us, Roger and I went and our middle son had the day off and met us there so he was really happy to see one of his "brothers". We took him outside for a little walk and while some of the updated lab results show improvement in one number two are elevated so the Dr is "cautiously optimistic" that he may do okay. They also did an ultrasound and there is some liver damage, how much they really can't say, and one of his kidneys may also have some damage. This was a nasty "bug" and hopefully I will name it tomorrow, but the most important thing will be getting our dog home and healthy again! The Dr. said he may be able to come home tomorrow or Friday, they would like him to eat, but as we told them Hunter often doesn't eat when there is change, if Roger and I leave for the day he won't eat all day, even when our sons are home. So I really think that if he doesn't need any IV meds he should come home where he can be in familiar surroundings with his family and his pesty little "brother" Midnight.
Thank you for your continued prayers and letting me ramble on about my sick dog. I truly believe in the power of prayer even for God's little creatures.
