After I took the boys to school, Jr. had a vet appt. Our other vet moved, and I didn't like his replacement, so we went to the Vet here in town. Now, let me tell you....this is old country vet. It was such a different experience.... He seems to know what he's doing, though, so I'll probably give him another try. He'll be calling back w/ some liver test results this afternoon, anyway. Yes, another huge vet bill. But I can honestly say, it's the one bill I don't get upset about. He's my baby. Hopefully we get all good news today :)
So, the vet called today, and didn't have good news about Jr. Basically his liver test range should be between 20-100, but his is 472.... He's also got some cancerous things that showed up. The vet asked if I wanted to choose quality of life, or take him off of his pain meds, which may be affecting the liver #'s. I chose quality of life. I don't think it's the meds, as his tests have always been fine w/ them. I know he's old, but he's still my baby. He's still happy, as the vet pointed out. We'll just continue to try and keep him happy and comfortable.
I made a new soup today: pumpkin Thai It was super easy, and it wasn't too bad. I put it over some brown rice, and cheated by putting a dollup of sour cream on there. Next time I need to add more herbs, to give it more of a kick. I'll add the recipe.
I hope you all have a great weekend. Yay! It's Friday!
