Lulu 7-9-07

we walked into to the vet to see Lulu today expecting the worse and she was actually happy to see us! she was wiggling around and kissing us and doing her dancing she does at us. we were soooo happy so we took some videos and pictures. [Error: close lj-embed tag without open tag]
She is now under the care of an internal specialist. She is at the same vet office just under the care of a different doctor that specializes in this type of thing. He is going to do an ultra sound on her today and should get back to us around 5. He also mentioned he wanted to try and do a cathater sp? (pee tube) with her but didnt know if it would be possible because she is a little dog. That way they can see how much urine is coming out etc.
I am really starting to think Lulu was born with bad kidneys. He said if she has always been peeing a ton and always drank a bunch of water that right there is a major kidney sign. I have always told every vet she has ever been to the same thing but I guess they didnt put it together. He should be able to see on the ultrasound what is going on. We will get her blood results back today too. But they took that sample last night when she was really sick... so i am sure they will still be bad. they took another one today when she was acting better so hopefully the results we will get back tommorow will be good.
They did an "in house" test on her last night and her levels were still really high and they hadnt gone down at all...
So if her kidneys are unreparable I dont know what happens then.... we just wait till she passes away? What happens to dogs that are born with bad kidneys? Anyone know? I am waiting until I know for sure this is the case but if she was born with bad ones i am going to go so crazy on her breeder. Imagine how many puppies she is selling like this. It is sickening to think about.
We are up to about $5,000 in vet bills for my girl. I will pay infinity amount I just want her to get better. Some people asked if I had a paypal account so I went ahead and made one. If you want to donate anything helps :) 

I will make a seperate post with the button
Thank you so much everyone for being there for us and Lulu. I really think all your positive vibes you are sending her are truly helping!!
