    DefaultUPDATE ON REX, DIAMOND

    lets see,not really sure where i left off. went to the internist with rex and she was unable to do a guided biopsy because his coagulation level was horrid. she thinks he's in liver failure. he's on 3 different meds and was on 30 mgs of prednisone till sat because fri night he became incontinent. hopefully due to the prednisone. anyway, she halved the dose, down to 15 mgs and he's doing well. even perky. i'm still hoping against hope, that he just has "old dog liver" and with some meds will be ok.(and he's on that gross prescription food from hills for the liver-doesnt want me home cooking yet)
    now on to diamond.
    i got a call last monday from their insurance company. the woman, a dog owner, couldn't have been nicer. she asked for all rex's latest invoices(my total for all 3 dogs is now over $2500) and another note from my vet. all were faxed to her and she called again, this monday with "how's rex" as her first question. i'd like to think she's genuine and think by now, she would have said they weren't paying but she keeps asking me to fax her the current bills. i told her i was going on thurs for another blood test and she told me to fax, call her on mon as she would be out of the office the rest of this week.
    she also told me that she was my contact person for now on and how sorry she was that it took so long to get on her desk.
    so........now all i need is rex to have responded to the meds and be ok.

    Poor Rex! I pray he will be ok. I am glad you are pursuing Diamond, they need to be held accountable.

    I am glad diamond is working with you now, but it just makes me sick to think all this time they really didn't give a darn. And perhaps you can get money back for vet bills but they can't replace the damage their food did to your pet.
