Checking for pneumonia or kidney infection.
Jusy got a call from doctors office like 5 minutes ago. No apparent pneumonia on x-ray.
No apparent kidney infection.
Maybe kidney stones.
So ultra sound in the morning to check that.
They put me on an antibiotic anyway just as a precaution with my heart problems.
Levaquin. That is the one you hear about they pass out to everyone during the anthrax attacks here in the States.
So if it is Anthrax I'm cured. LOL
It still could be infection just not showing up. They did a CBC to check for elevated white cell count. It wasn't.
Mine never elevates much when I'm really bad sick. So that is not much help for diagnosis on me.
I told the nurse on the phone if mine were elevated then there would be something to worry about.
So anyway I'm hanging in there.
Take my antibiotic and drink lots of water to flush the kidney stones or bacteria out.
Good to hear you are under good care. With all the test they ran you didn't mention the pregnancy test. Did the rabbit live?
Who's taking care of Topper while you are under doctor's care or are you both seeing the same Vet? hehehe just a little humor for my sick friend.
