Hi friends! I'd like to wish you all a very Happy Valentine's day with lots of Corbin smoochies coming your way!
Did you hear we got 18 inches of snow yesterday??? We did. And do you know what I made the momma do? Yep, I sure did make her drive me to see Dr. Mike! No worries, we arrived at Dr. Mike safely and we arrived home safely... we were pretty much the only crazy ones on the roads! Dr. Mike said my toe is healing up GREAT! And he was so pleased that I didn't destroy any of his efforts! He took out most of my stitches and rebandaged my paw. The momma didn't take a picture because it wasn't for those faint of heart
aka the momma.
Lots o' snow that the Corbin can't play in.
We got back the final results from the culture which came back negative -so no signs of infection! The biopsy also came back negative! But, Dr. Mike is still a bit skeptical about what caused my bone to shatter like it did.... so they're doing extra cancer screenings on my toe just to be safe. We should have the results next week. After that, we can assume that I, the Corbin, am a certified mystery dog! Hehe, the momma and Dr. Mike pretty much agreed they'd be okay with that, as long as my body isn't being invaded by the nasty C (cancer, not Corbin, hehe).
Smoochable face, I think.
Mayzie also came with me for my visit with Dr. Mike. She was scheduled to have her baby maker removed today, but with the snow storm, the momma thought it might be best for her to ride up with us last night and spend the night. She's pretty adjustable and the momma sent her with a comfy bed and blankets. Doncha know, she never even looked back for us! She was so happy that the vet tech was lovin' on her, she couldn't have cared less about me and the momma being left behind! I wasn't so calm about the situation, but the momma distracted me with some treats, so it was all good.
The momma received a phone call from Dr. Mike this morning though. They ran a pre-surgical blood test on Mayzie and it showed her kidney levels are very off, pointing to signs of kidney failure. After a long chat with Dr. Mike, the momma and he decided to go through with the spay surgery. While she was under, he would be able to get a good look at her kidneys and do some more testing that would give him a better idea of what we're dealing with. They're going to run some more blood work and test her urine. The other possibility is that she has a uterine infection, which could cause her kidneys to be a bit off. But, he's going to flush her kidney's and take the best of best care of our amayzing gal. Hopefully we'll have a bit more insight on her condition soon.
Now I get to be her nurse.
Please send some prayers that things go well and this can be something treatable for her.
