Morgan Is Home

As it turns out, Morgans problem was not his kidneys. Which has us all wondering about the last time. His kidneys are fine, but his immune system is running on overdrive, killing off the red blood cells. That's what happened before, but we thought it was kidneys causing the immune problem. As it turns out, it seems to be the other way around. Immune system causing the problem. So he's going to be taking Prednazone for awhile. Possibly for the rest of his life, since they couldn't figure out what is causing the immune system to superpower itself. The Dr. says that this is not an uncommon problem in old dogs (yes, Morgan is an old fart. He's 12. Iggy's live 13 to 16 years on average). Getting old sucks, even for dogs. Sigh.

Anyway, he's home and already showing improvement. His appetite is back, and he's walking around the house a bit. Even going outside to do the business. Unfortunately for me, the side effect of Prednazone is drinking water way more than normal and having to pee a lot. It's going to be a long night.

Thanks to those who have sent good thoughts his way.

Take care.
