21098Re: [FH] Monkey's new health issue
- Sep 30, 2005Thanks, Lisa, for googling, I wish I had written down what the vet
said the cyst was called (if that's what it turns out to be, that
rare cyst), but I was in that state of trying to just grasp as much
info and implications as I could. You know that state you get into
when the vet is giving you bad news as nicely as they can? I'm sure
everyone here knows what that's like!
Her BW from last month was a blood clotting time test and a CBC. I
know the blood clotting time test was ok, I think there were some
highs and lows on the CBC, but nothing my boss really was concerned
enough to alert me to. I have a copy....are the numbers meaningful
to you, should I post them (I mean the flagged ones)? I think what
she did today was a chem panel. Maybe those numbers are more
meaningful at this point, whenever I get my hands on them!
You are right, I definitely didn't need this....I had finally decided
I could leave Monkey for a week and take a trip. My week off is
scheduled for the week my vet returns, so I'm sure I won't be going
anywhere. I was working on arranging to go to the Gulf Coast to help
care for the rescued animals, and the nurse up the road DID agree to
give Monkey her Lovenox injections if I couldn't train my boyfriend
to do it confidently.
And most importantly, of course, it's hard because Little Miss Monkey
has been doing so extraordinarily WELL! Well, one fun thing tonight
was that tonight's the first night her regular vet saw her walk on
all her legs!
