Yes, it is celebration time here at Chez Herd. Natasha’s blood work from yesterday shows that her liver has returned to normal functioning! Her blood work just over a month ago before surgery to remove her spleen and part of her liver showed liver results that were off the charts.
We knew that she was feeling much better. Appetite is good. Enjoys yard time with the rest of The Herd. Her usual yelling at the youngsters for not behaving. The desire to go on walks with everyone. So with her actions stronger, we were hoping that the medical tests would confirm the good news. The liver results were right smack in the middle of the acceptable range – a better result than we could have hoped.
We will test again in about 4 weeks with more bloodwork and an ultrasound, but pardon us while we have some celebration time here at Chez Herd!
Book of the Week
Our last several book of the week recommendations have been specifically about dogs. But our other passion is hiking the beautiful mountains that surround us. One of the funnier books we have read lately on the topic is A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail.
We could fairly label it a “How Not To” book on preparing for the excruciating hike, but the author’s self depreciating humor makes for an entertaining and enlightening book. The book is a #1 best seller and currently has 4.2 stars from Amazon and 4.05 stars from Goodreads.
