Right after I posted about my creative space last week, Marley D., one of my beautiful dogs, became very ill.
Friday night he was fine, but when I got home on Saturday morning,
he refused to eat breakfast and didn't want to get up.
I took him to the emergency vet, and he had a high fever, and when they drew labs, he was very anemic.
He was in the hospital for ten days with autoimmune hemolytic anemia, on high dose prednisone, Immuran, Cyclosporin,
and he had some chemotherapy drugs.
He had three blood transfusions.
He became jaundiced and had blood in his urine.
On Saturday, they did a reticulocyte count and he was starting to make new red blood cells, and today I brought him home! He is still very weak, but doing much better and his lab values are improving.
I just took this photo of him, he's so glad to be home.
I want to leave you with a very important thought:
Pet insurance is worth it. His bill was $4600.00
Have a great week! Love, Linda
