We brought Luke home from the animal hospital this afternoon. His creatinine level was a little higher than normal, but not high enough to put him in danger. He will have one more blood test tomorrow as an outpatient. As long as that one is near the normal range, we should be home free.
He isn't himself right now. The past few days have obviously taken their toll on all of us. His collar was covered in a black tar substance when we picked him up. It took me a few minutes to realize it is the remnants of the activated charcoal they gave him on Sunday.
His collar and dog bed cover are in the washing machine. And he's getting some much needed rest in his favorite spot on the couch. Hopefully after the blood test tomorrow (if we can make it there... #snomg2), things will quickly get back to normal around here.
Andrew and I thank all of you for your prayers/good thoughts/crossed fingers and paws. And to those of you who donated to the Luke Recovery Fund, you are amazing. I'm taking down the donate button this evening, but all of the donations we have received in the past 24 hours are going towards the hefty bill for his hospitalization. We can't thank you enough. I am thinking about ways that I can express our thanks... so be on the lookout for that in the future.
Oh, and one more thing... Luke says "thank u" too...
Keep those fingers and paws crossed for good results following Luke's final blood work tomorrow!
