Hopefully tomorrow, I'm really bummed. Don't know if he didn't get a chance to call, or the result isn't in - he thought we would get it by tonight, but wasn't definitive.

I have had a few days where I was thinking of going up the hill (tomorrow Wed being one of them), but she' been pretty weak, more tired than me even, so I wanted to wait until thi was ruled out or in.

Drat.

It's 9:30 in the Golden State. Aren't the veterinary laboratories reporting by now?

Ugh, they do rounds in the morning, with vet interns(?), so I haven't even called. Being a referral center, I guess that makes sense. Not sure when I should call... pacing

spitcoffee I suspect later this afternoon - he probably will call when he knows he has a bit of time to talk, like, what, he expects a million and one questions from me? He's very good about my millions of questions...

Well, sh*t, nothing is ever clear...

NOT classical Addison's. However, she didn't stim high enough to be "normal".

Normally they want to see the cortisol stimulation greater than 8. She stimmed at 7.2 (I think Max's was around 16). This time, her resting cortisol was much better at 1.9 (greater than 2 essentially rules out addison's).

He said the low stim could be three things:

1) This is her normal,

2) She has relative adrenal insufficiency, where she can't produce enough cortisol when she is sick or stressed (n hindsight, I think Indy had this to some degree, which is also found in mdr1 dogs), or

3) We are catching this early, on the way to full-fledged adrenal insuffiency, and he thinks we should retest in 4-6 months. (Bank account says ouch.)

We both believe that this is either #2 or #3. He did say that if she got really sick or went under anesthesia, he would administer steroids to help her through it. He also said that this does not argue for any type of steroid therapy now.

The intestinal problems are still the driver in this, and we'll continue with this plan of using the pectin for anti-inflammatory, and will have to get a urine sample via cysto and check protein/creatinine ratio if this current regimen doen't resolve the urinary protein issue (he still believes it's from the gut, but does not know for sure).

So, nothing changed really, though I guess I've learned more about my girl...
