Hoping Saturday goes without a hitch and Charlie gets rid of that cough lickety split.

May the force be with you on Saturday Kyle -- all of us will be there holding you up in spirit : )

And we will all be anxiously waiting the outcome as well. This is for moral support :grouphug

So the saga continues for Charlie. It seems like now we are dealing with heart issues. There was one test result still outstanding and that was the pro BNP and it came back late yesterday when I arrived with Shelby for a shot for her back issues. It turns out Charlie's numbers are >3000 which is high so he's now on Vetmedin and we are hoping to bring him along for Jack's cardio appointment Monday at noon. It just turns out that we noticed Jack is starting to cough again and breath heavier and we know he has CHF so we need to get him in ASAP. Hopefully the Cardiologist will call back today saying it's okay to bring both together. The operation to remove the lump on Charlie's side has been postponed until we know more things about his heart and it's possible the pneumonia apparent on the films may be fluid build-up.

 

As they say, "when it rains, it pours".

Charlie is at the E-vet now. He wasn't himself this morning and was shivering a lot and wouldn't take any treats after his breaky. He normally gets a few pieces of banana and melon as DW is making a smoothies and he never turns that down but he did today. Something is very wrong and we just can't pinpoint it yet. He has fluid buildup in the chest, a small amount but it's there so right now we are waiting on an internal medicine specialist call back on what that fluid is and next steps. We're still hoping it's something treatable but things are starting to spiral out of control and that is a very bad sign.

Do the drs feel that he has plural effusion secondary to cardiac disease (brought on by past chemo treatments).

A chest tap may be in order- he will feel immediate relief.

Fingers crossed for your boy- I'm sure he's in good hands.

Didn't Bevd's deerhound, Darcy, develop similar problems as a result of chemo? Darcy lived quite well (and for longer than anyone could have imagined) once she was finally stabilized on medication.

 

Charlie, all of us whose dogs were original members of the 7.5 club are pulling for you.
