Annie -- Clearing the Hurdle
While that is all of course good news, there was a bit of bad news on Annie's blood work that was returned. Some of you may recall that Annie has damage to her liver and kidney's from medication that she was given prior to her coming to live with us. Her liver values have remained pretty stable over the past 9 months, but there continue to be slight changes in her kidney's. I discussed what all this meant for Annie and the bottom line is that she only has about 25% kidney function. Serious health problems occur when the kidney function drops below 25 percent. As I said, not the best of news for Annie, but I'm hoping we can maintain those numbers with the medication she's being given. However right now, I'm just really thankful and relieved that we are almost over this hurdle with her foot.
