sad... But true!
amazing what a few days bring... lately things in world have been going very well, starting to get myself together.... A major set back rocked our world this week, we took our youngest Maggie(year old Maltese) in for pre-op blood work before getting fixed, and to our shock they found something. After further testing it was found that her liver isn't functioning the way it should. This could be a sign of a potentially terminal liver condition found in small dogs called a "liver shunt" a birth defect some dogs have, where the blood supply bypasses the liver, not cleaning the blood, and causing the liver to atrophy... not good!! we take her in for more testing to confirm this diagnosis on Monday, please send her your happy thoughts.... my sweet little girl.... I have no children so she truly is my baby!
