I sure could use some good news.


Doug is the same. Mom & I have almost talked him into a 2nd opinion @ the hosp for special surgery in NY. We just don't really trust his (dad's) ortho and would like to hear about it from someone else. He'll have another MRI scheduled in a few weeks to determine if surgery is needed.

McKenna - all results from bloodwork came back perfect except for a "questionable" but "nothing to worry about" value under Lime. Anyone know anything about it? I'm going to call in to the doc to ask more ques. This "questionable" value was 41. That's all I know. Her ortho appt is Wednesday, both 2-year recheck of her hips from her baby dysplasia and for him to look over this injury, the two apparently unrelated. She's limping a lot less, mostly in pain only at night.

Toby, the dog - things don't look good. His hematocrit (sp) levels came back today very low, both indicative that he's not producing new red blood cells/platelets and that this is most likely bone marrow cancer. After his significant dive in health last weekend, he got better but has planed since. He's just so not himself. Doc is giving him till Tues., another 5 days on this course of meds and vitamins to see if his anemia #s come up. If they do, we'll keep going. If they don't, he recommends euthanizing. Nothing looks promising. His 3rd birthday is tomorrow, the 6th. He's on antibiotics (3 pills), prednizone (6 pills), iron supplement (3 tsp/day) and vitamins (3/day).

Life is going on, but I sure could use some good news.
Got this quote today via email:

Im so sorry to hear about this Linds, it brought tears to my eyes when I read that Toby is so sick.

I will pray that everybody gets a clean bill of health.
