Dr. Dobson called at 9:45, Shadow was standing up in her cage, wagging her tail, and wanting out. ;D She responded well to the transfusion.
He had told me earlier that their normal blood count is between 36 and 42. When I first brought her in last Friday her count was 32. When I brought her in for surgery, it was 30. After surgery it was 26, but that was t be expected with the hemmorhagng and the removal of the spleen and the hematoma. When I took her back this afternoon it was between 12 and 13. It's back up to 21 now, not good, but a hell of a lot better than it was. He may let her come home tomorrow, but she'll be back on the Prednisone for at least a couple of days to help build her up. She still has a long way to go, but at least now she has a chance to get there.
Thank You, God, and thank you everyone for your prayers and good thoughts! ;D
I'm so glad to hear the transfusion went well. I'm hoping she continues to improve steadily, and can be home soon. You have to be so relieved, so far....I hope you can get some rest now, and that Shadow can rest and get better quickly.
