I took this picture of Mona right before we left for her Ultrasound. She didn't want to go.
This was Mona waiting for the doctor begging me to take her home.
Mona did not have her gallbladder removed. The Ultrasound didn't show any gall stones. Let me say right up front that I'm more confused than before and scared even more.
Thus far, in 10 weeks of medication, she has she has not been responding to the Denosyl for her liver or anitobotic thrapy. The liver and gall bladder enzymes have continued to increase. The Specialist thinks she might have Cushing's disease, which would be more horrifying to me. My Samantha had Cushing's, which led to renal failure, which led to Diabeties which led to her death in 18 months. I am terrified
The words below were taken directly from the report I was given today.
DIAGNOSTIC test done: ACTH stimulation test. The results of the test will be ready tomorrow. Diagnosis for now is HEPATOPATHY of unknown cause - additional diagnostic pending.
Recheck: If the test results are not consistent with Cushing's disease, then the next step is to biopsy the liver and possibly obtain a sample of bile for analysis as well to determine the reason behind the liver enzyme increase.
So we play the waiting game some more. If it's Cushing's we will have a consult on where to go from here. If not Cushings she will have a biopsy & bile test on Wednesday and have to stay overnight. Thank God, I'll have Weenie to love on and cry into his furs all night. Then the waiting game starts again since it will take almost a week before the results come back.
I think I will lose my mind by then. Weenie was not very happy when he had to stay home by himself this morning. When we got home he ran up to Mona and threw himself on her. It was like he handn't seen her in forever. He ignored me. Just as expected he managed to knock done the kitchen garbage can and stuff was everywhere. Oh Well!!
But as soon as Mona came into the room, he got up & have her his bed and blanket. They have doinbg this ever since........
When I started typing this report, Weenie was still ignoring me. Can you guess where he was hiding........
My friend, you know her as Aunt Judy, sent me the link below to cheer me up. It is beautiful but it didn't. Maybe when I'm in a better frame of mind. Ut is worth a look.
This is outstanding. It's like dancing flowers.
PS.........spell check is still not working but I tired to care.
