Toxic Tuesday #9

Well, the little stinker's CBC (complete blood count) was almost perfect, so we went ahead with the "Deadly Doxo" he was due for today. And we had a long talk with Dr. Hinz (Dr. Sandy's partner ~ super nice) about the sneezing and the nosebleeds, etc.
He's going to try to get a culture from Dunc's nose today to check for infection (his WBC's (infection fighters), while still in the normal range, tripled from what they were last week) and to look for any suspicious/ abnormal cells.
Then, once Dunc has settled down from the Doxo, we'll have them sedate him, and look up his nose to see what, if anything, they can see. It's a limited study, but still... I'm trying like hell to avoid having to take him to Pullman for an MRI.

I got about 2 hours of sleep last night ~ I just couldn't stop crying. Not in much better shape this morning, either.
Duncan may be a Mighty Warrior, but I'm not feeling too strong just now ~

So sorry to hear that things aren't looking so great. Kia kaha my friend!

I'm sure Dunc will give you a little of his Warrior strength! He can tell when you are upset so hang in there.
