My sister Heidi went back to the doctor on monday, her new BUN test number is 60 down from 126 the last time, my mom says that is good news. Mom says that her liver numbers have gone up, that is bad news. Heidi has another round of pills to take, and special yucky dog food to eat. we hope in 2 weeks at her next doctor visit all her numbers have gone down.

Tippy's sister Heidi is sick, she has come down with a kidney infection and it has made her kidneys stop functioning the way they should. Her first bun test (Blood Urea Nitrogen) had her level at 140, normal level should be 34 or lower. the doctor gave her an antibiotic shot and pills. She seemed to get better for a few days, then seemed to take a turn for the worse. Mom and gramma took her back to the doctor and her bun level number had gone up higher, the doctor said it was not looking good for her but he gave her a bag of fluids and sent her home. a few days later dad took her back to have her checked, (mom and dad both thought she was not comming home again) but her bun levels have come down and she has more energy so mom and dad think she is on the road to recovery. She needs to go back to the doctor next week for a check, we are all hoping for good news
