copper is still very ill. they are pretty sure all of the bone bits are out of him with the many enemas and laxatives..he had a normal soft bowel movement today. but he is still not eating and for copper the world's biggest glutton, this is very concerning.
his bloodwork is back and the good news is, his cushings is finally controlled.
the bad news is...his liver enzymes are over 3000. tomorrow he will have xrays of his liver, looking specifically for cancer. IF his liver looks ok...maybe it is just a really bad case of pancreatitis and we will order more bloodwork to look at that next.
for now..the bones are no longer the issue and we are not altogether sure what the other issue is.
a quick update on
gwen..she did really well with her surgery and i will bring her home tomorrow (i felt bad leaving her there cuz she was in the kennel next to lucas and i could have brought her home tonight but i just didn't want to have to worry about her after losing lucas so i said she had to wait til my lunch break tomorrow....she is so good, the clinic did not mind keeping her one more night.)
and on sidney..she looks bright and perky tonight..she seems stronger to me and is still eating really well.
and finally ..the marshmellow man...bella is slowly getting used to him and is not being such a freak out hag. marshmellow is a perfect match for her because he is so utterly calm in her emotional storm.
sam came and cleaned up andy (he is still partially sedated, but he did very well)...and squirt (he has a mohawk...too cute) and mandy and max got a very quick face trim (we were afraid to do too much in case they broke again.)
that is it for the rest of the worrisome sainted ones.....hope continues to float for sidney and copper....send them positive thoughts that they both feel much better soon.
