    So glad he's eating and must be feeling better! How much snow did you guys get? I know you, Donna, are NOT allowed to shovel for quite some time!

    Karen,

    I'll wait till the snow melts off my car since it's supposed to be in the 40's to 50's this weekend. We got a total about 12-18 inches (upper number in the higher elevations). I absolutely HATE being stuck home. I AM going to try and venture out (yes DRIVE) today (Dr. said no driving for 2 weeks and it'll be 2 weeks on the 13th). There's a pet food drive in Windsor for Friends of Windsor Animal Care and Control. I need a human to schmooze with!!!!

    How much did you guys get???

    Bartie is at Dr. Pennington's office for a second opinion. Dr. P got a urine sample out of him and said it sort of confirmed that he is in renal failure. His urine was WAAAY too clear (a bad sign). They also doing another blood work up. Tomorrow they're going to do an ultrasound which will confirm or rule out renal failure.

    Since my last post he's peeing all over the place and the vomiting, also not a good sign. A friend offered me a cage to keep him in. I will NOT cage him. What kind of life would that be for him???

    Please keep Bartie in your thoughts and prayers. The minute I find out anything, I will post it. You guys are the BEST!!!!

    Poor Bartie. Prayers going out. I hope it's something besides the renal failure that is making him so sick...but likely not. HUGS to you and Bartie. Please give him a kiss on his forehead for me.

    It sounds very much like renal failure, but PT Prayers are powerful and you know we are all praying for Bartie!

    Bartie has liver cancer. He has a lot of small cancerous nodules throughout his liver. He was severely dehydrated. Doctor Pennington said that the end is near he just doesn't know how soon. He has lot of other underlying issues as well and he said that Bartie would require sub q fluids every other day for the rest of his life. The vet says there's really nothing more they can do for him. So I have made the gut wrenching decision to help him over to the Rainbow Bridge. I'm going back to the vet's office at 2:30 to spend a half an hour with him before doctor Pennington gives him the injecti. That would require himon.

    My friend Nancy offered to give him the sub q fluids. But I just can't justify to Bartie why he's spending the rest of his days in a cage. It's not fair to him.

    You've made the right decision, as heartwrenching and difficult as it is, for Bartie. Sending you both lots of love and good thoughts.
