Fiona and her liver
It started out as a urine check for Fiona because I thought she might have a bladder infection. She had been peeing more and drinking more water than usual. She also would pee, then poop, then pee again, which I'd never seen her do before. So hubby, Mark took in her urine sample and we waited for the call.
There was protein in her urine. Quite possibly her kidneys. We set up an appointment for a blood test the following week.
We took her in, had a full blood panel done and we got the results at the end of the visit. Fiona's liver levels are all high. Not sure exactly what that means, but it isn't good. We were given liver supplements for Fiona to take for a month and then having levels rechecked. If her liver levels go back down it is her liver malfunctioning and probably due to old age. If her levels don't change, then there is something else going on that we will have to look into further.
We are a little scared, but hopeful. Maybe it won't be as bad as we fear.
Any prayers or well wishes would be greatly appreciated!
