Thanks, everyone! I haven't heard anything yet today, but I will update when I can. As of last night they were working to get her creatinine levels down and stop the progression of renal damage, and that the first 24 hours are critical. Poor mare and kid. I'm going to go to the barn in a bit and hug my horse today.
Small update: sweet mare is hanging in there today. Her muscle enzymes are coming down and creatinine did come down but not enough. Her family could have some difficult decisions to make tomorrow if the numbers don't come down more. Please keep jingling for the sweet girl and her family!
Whisper is doing a little better today, but as of this AM, she still has a ways to go. Creatinine was down again, but they look for it to drop under 6 after 24 hours and she was at 7.7 after 36. She's getting lots of fluids and hopefully will keep dropping. If they can get her down under a 6, she will have to spend a couple of weeks at the clinic still, so still a long road ahead.
Just wanted to thank everyone for all your jingles. Whisper is home and doing well. Her long-term prognosis is mixed-her life will be shortened, but for the meantime, she is happy and comfortable. She will have a special diet for the rest of her life to combat both the PSSM and the kidney damage (vets feel it resulted from the combo of drugs used by her regular vet to treat a laceration). But she and her girl have some more time together, and the family is looking for a second horse (which I think is great-girl will have time to bond with new horse and progress in a situation that's less traumatic than if she had lost her mare, but current mare will get lots of attention and love, and some quiet walks or even rides when she feels up to it). It's not the outcome we all hoped for, but it's a lot better than what we feared. And since misery apparently loves company, my horse is lame again, so the two of them can commiserate at night in their stalls...
