Just a little update on Marissa, she is doing well and still in love with her horse Chief. She is down to getting labs once every two months now, and doesn't even need me to sit beside her while she has her blood drawn anymore. Yesterday my son, her older brother noticed that her eyes were pretty swollen and alerted me to this. That was what got our attention when we were trying to put all the unusual symptoms together a couple years ago. I took her in for labs again yesterday, even though she had just had them done last week, and her Creatinine was still good, last week it was .5 and yesterday it was .6 I did however read that although she is in "remission" other organs could still be affected from the disease. She of course is still on a handful of meds for high blood pressure, but is there anything else I should keep my eyes out for?
I would love to hear any suggestions or advice you feel would be helpful. Thanks!
