Two out of Three Are Better!!!

Hello, Friends,
I have good news today!  Frank is showing signs of improvement.

Last night, he woke us up twice to go to the bathroom which was a good sign that his kidneys were funtioning well without having to wait for blood work.  He was a lot more alert and bright eyed than he had been since Monday, also, even though it was the middle of the night.  He was also trying to stand up, which he hadn't been doing.  He couldn't stand up because of the thing in his leg/foot where they are continuing to give him fluids and medicine, but he was trying.  

I just got a call from Dr. Reardon, his vet, and two of his numbers are improving.  His kidneys are doing better, which we already had guessed, and his phosphorus numbers are better.  Unfortunately, his liver numbers haven't improved and that is where his vet thinks the problem started.  She is going to tweak his medicine and see if we can't get those numbers to improve.  We will do blood work again on Friday to see how he is doing.  

We are so thankful that Frank is doing better.  I have no doubt that it is because of all of the prayers that have been sent up on his and our behalf.  We give God all the glory for giving us more time with our sweet boy.  Trust me, on Monday, he was so sick, so weak and he looked so bad.  I truly believed that this was the end.  That was one of the main factors in taking him back and forth to the clinic was that we didn't want him to pass away there by himself.  To see him doing so much better than he was then is nothing less than a miracle.  

Because the liver number is not better, we aren't out of the woods yet.  Frank still isn't eating or drinking on his own either.  He is just so much better than he was that it is a huge relief to believe God has given us a little more time with him.  We all love him with all of our hearts!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you for your prayers and kind words during this difficult time.  If you would please continue to pray for Dr. Reardon as she makes decisions for his care and for his liver numbers to prove, we would all greatly appreciate it.  Any extra time we have with Frankfurter, especially when he is not so sick, is an absolute gift from God.  

Thank you, again,

Angela, Frankfurter, and Frankfurter's Grandma and Grandpa
