The vet office finally called around 530p tonight, I was at work. Smokie's blood work indicated he has kidney failure (known as CRF - Chronic Renal Failure). More on the treatment plan by Friday if I get a urine sample overnight tonight, which will give us an indication of how it has progressed.
I'm really seeking strength right now that *I* can handle the Sub-Q treatments that I will have to do with him. I'm here to tell you that there is a reason I am not a nurse and one of those reasons is needles.
