Lulu's Levels  
So Lulu's levels aren't good at all. Her creatinine level on friday when we rushed her to the vet was a 13. Today it's a 12. She has only gone down 1 since she has been on an IV since friday. Not good at all. For a normal dog a good creatinine level would be a 2 or lower. For a dog with kidney failure a good level would be a 4. 

This is so not good. We are going to keep her there another day I guess. The dr said she cant stay on the IV forever.. He said she looks very good and shes in good spirits but her levels arent good at all. She also has mild pancreaitis.. there is no cure for that.. so that is why it hurts her when she eats. 

Once her kidneys start functioning again her pancrease will too... ugh i was hoping for good news. The dr also said her ultrasound images were the worse he has seen in a very long time :(

So we will keep her there another day. Pray for her levels to go down more. Then we will take her home and start fluids under the skin. I don't think she will make it long though living with her levels so high. My poor sweet girl. This is horrible.
I am feeling: worriedworried

I'm very sorry to hear that you are going through all of this. I cannot imagine what this has to be like for you, and I hope it is some small measure of comfort to know that so many people in this group are here to support you. Albus and I hope for the best for you and Lulu.

I'm so sorry to hear her levels didn't drop much, but at least they did go down some. She looks in high spirits in the videos, very happy to be with her mommy and daddy. That's the best medicine of all, the love you give her. We'll keep praying for sweet Lu.

She's been in my thoughts all day.
I hope there's a miracle for this little angel.

Luly Belle
I'm so sorry about Lulu Belle. I have a Boston Terrier who is the love of my life. I can't even imagine losing her. Anyone who owns a Boston knows what it's like to have one in their life. I'm sorry this comment is probably not making you feel any better. I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am. I don't even know you but I'm sitting here weeping. My prayers are with you. I will continue to read the updates. Lulu Belle is absolutely beautiful!!
