'When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen
the moon laughs and whispers,
'tis near Halloween'
I fooled ya!! That 3 headed dog wasn't me. It's just some old doggie costume Mommy found and thought it was cute. I'm gonna be a black cat, if me and Sissy even cellabrate Halloween this year. As most of you already know, Mona is a cancer survivor and Dr Briles is afraid it might be coming back. Mommy took her for more blood work yesterday and the results weren't what she wanted to hear. Monie's gall bladder and liver aren't working right.
Just wanted you guys know how it went for Mona today since you are the main blogging friends she has.
It didn't go as well as I had hoped with her blood work. Everything was normal except the ones having to do with her liver and gallbladder. This is all Greek to me and very confusing. Here were the results.
ALT ..... 406 (normal 10 - 100) down from 447 on 9/16/11
Down but still way to high.
ALKP ..... 830 (normal 23 - 212) up from 587 on 9/16/11
GGT ......38 (normal 0 - 7) up from 19 on 9/16/11
Dr Briles now thinks that her gallbladder is what is causing the liver problems. He said he could give her medication to help the gall bladder but he is afraid it would rupture it if he gave her it. He is going to schedule her for another ultrasound (looking for a stone), possibly gall bladder surgery and a biopsy of the liver based on what the ultrasound shows. She doesn't need her gallbladder, so dang it, why does she even have it. He's trying to get her into the specialist by Wednesday.
I don't understand how she can look so good, play & run around and still have such high blood counts. It is very disturbing and all I feel like doing is holding her, rubbing her belly and crying into her furs. I will try to do a short post tomorrow about my girl but please keep us in your prayers and spread the Power of the Paw for her and me too, I'm the basket case.
Sarah, the Mommy
Weenie here.........I'm back. So that what's goning on at our house. It dosen't help that Mommy is having trouble with both her knees right now and can't hardly move around. So for awhile Mommy and my Sissy won't be posting at lot until we find out what's happening with Mona. BUT Mommy said I can take over since it's Halloween. S0 for awhile, since I ain't got no thumbs, I'm gonna post a Halloween joke of the day and amcute doggie or kitty or whatever in costume that made Mommy laugh.
Not a lot of you have sent in your suggestions for how I can close my postings but you still have time. The deadline is October 31 but soembody did send somethig that I kinda like, so I'm kinda gonna use it borrow it with my own twist.
Please pray for my Sissy.
