Tootsie's Blood Work Looks Good!

Breaking news update: my ten-day blood work overall looks good! Yes!

Thank you all for your support!

Mom just talked to special PET MOBILE vet Dr. Ward. My platelet counts are slightly elevated, which is fine, because it indicates extra clotting. I need this because of the past internal bleeding and fighting off an ulcer. But it looks like I've fought off--fought through--the poison. Aleve/naproxen can cause ulcers, liver damage, and kidney failure. It seems my GI tract took the bulk of the insult.

Blood work continued: my potassium levels are slightly elevated. This can sometimes indicate kidney problems; however, in my case, no other numbers are elevated. So it's probably okay and just a result of the trauma and toxic assault I've been through these past ten days.

We will test everything again in a month. It looks like I'm going to be okay. I certainly feel okay! I'm full of vim and vigor this morning!

Thank you all so much for helping me through this. Thank you special vet Dr. Ward. We are overwhelmed with gratitude. Our special reader Christa said she wishes her human doctors were like her vets for her furkids. Mom sure agrees! Dr. Ward is total wotten waven.

Here's a picture of wiener dog balloons that Mom showed me this morning in celebration. What a pack of doxies. Keep on wagging!

  18. Tootsie,
    I am not sure where it went, but I left you a post a moment ago. Some funky Blogspot thing. Mommy and I are thrilled beyond belief that you are doing so well. Don't tell anyone but I a latex free plastic glove once...it was a harrowing nightmare for several days. But I am fine now!! God bless you and stay away from stuff like that, okay?
    Love you buddy! Pixel
