Quinn Birthday and Bloodwork--AKA Two Great Events!

Our first GREAT EVENT is that Quinn turned THREE on Sunday :) Since he's on a restricted diet at the moment, we couldn't do the traditional cake and nice-cream, so we went with a new big stuffy. In the last year or so, Quinn has transitioned from loving to eat his stuffies to loving to sleep with them. So this large stuffy bone turned out to be a well-appreciated birthday prezy. As you can see, he is testing all possibilities. I'm sure there will be more to come... LOL

The second GREAT EVENT is that Quinn had his bloodwork today and his platelet count and his protein level are MUCH better!! It's looking like the return to his previous diet is going to be sufficient to keep his GI issues under control. This was wonderful news. 

We will have another echo in a few weeks, but the vet couldn't hear any murmurs today and based on his systemic improvements, we are anticipating the DCM will have cleared up by then. 

Thanks to all of you for your prayers, your support, your well-wishes, and your positive thoughts. It has meant a lot; you made a difference. If I knew how to insert a heart here, I would. Please imagine it :)

Oh, Quinn ... we are so happy for you!  Glad you are feeling so much better.  Obviously, your mom is taking good care of you.  What a wonderful birthday present for you and your family.

Woohoo!  Way to go Quinn!   Happy, happy 3rd Birthday!  You all have been though so much in so little time.   A stuffie will last so much longer than a piece of cake and it looks like he loves it!  Looking good big guy!
