View Full Version : Brodie!!!

07-Aug-09, 12:24
today is my birthday and I have just recieved the best present ever.............Brodie had tests done earlier this week to see how his liver is and the great news is that it is NORMAL!!!!!!

His liver parameters are NORMAL
his bile acids are NORMAL
there are no patent shunts (other shunts appearing after the original was tied off)
and best of all THERE IS NO LIVER DAMAGE (yes I know I am shouting!!)

today was tinged with a bit of sadness with it being my 1st birthday since mum passed away but this has more than made up for it.......I'm sure she is up there putting things right for us all.

thank you to all those who have been there for us with all we went through with Brodie - your support was truely wonderful - I hope you find this news as good as we do xxxxx

here's a photo of him taken yesterday, as you can see the hairy look has been exchanged for a sleeker one (he was matted that much I had to get it done!!) I was going to get Mucky pups to do it but had to cancel the appointment but luckily the groomers in Nairn were able to fit him in one weekend when we were at the caravan

He is now 30kg of pure muscle and will be 1 year old on 11th August :Razz:Razz

Have a very happy birthday, Dragonfly. The news is wonderful! Brodie looks lovely and is probably enjoying having a lighter coat in the warmer weather.

Who said there is no light at the end of the tunnel?

I am glad to hear that Brodie is well again and that life is back on track for you after a very testing 12 months for you all.

He is some dog and I am sure he will bring many a smile to all of us in the years to come.
