WELCOME HOME RAZZLE!

Well my little prickly pumpkin came home today! His kidney levels are better...not 100% back to where they should be, but enough. He was sent home with some new medicines (yippee.) We go back for a check-up in 2 weeks, at which time we'll have a better idea of what we are dealing with. Believe it or not, at this point, Razzle's kidney issues are more serious than even his heart condition. I think the reason it is more serious is that, if he does have kidney failure/disease, his health can go downhill real fast. His heart condition is a slower progression (though, as we have seen, it can cause many peripheral issues like lung infections, respiratory issues and is more than likely what is causing his kidney problems). Soooo...hopefully when we go back for his check-up, his kidney levels have gone back down to normal.

As far as that tumor that was found, that has NOT grown any bigger at all and is the least of our worries. Though, with the way things have gone over the past few months, that is subject to change at any time!!! Seems every other week our focus of worry is turned upon something else. There are more twists and turns to Razzle's story than a Sherlock Holmes novel.
Elementary, my dear Mum..


Right now, Razzle is resting peacefully in his igloo. He loves being home. He looks great. He feels great. That's the best I can ask for right now. I'm hoping things continue like this for a long, long time....

So nice to know Razzle is home! He must be getting pro at staying in the hospital by now, but we all know he belongs to home where his mommy and daddy are. Try to rest up in order to regain your strength back, Razzle. Hope you're feeling much better resting comfortably in your own igloo!

P.S. I realized I kept spelling "protain" instead of "protein" as I composed my PM in haste. How embarrassing...
