Great news on this #throwbackthursday ! My numbers came back with fantastic results: creatinine 2, phosphorus 4.4, BUN 17. This picture was taken about the time when I was first diagnosed and I was told that my kidneys were shriveled up, incredibly small, and that I'd likely only live a maximum of one year. #ibelieveinmiracles#andhomecookeddiets
Do I really have to get my blood drawn? I'm at my usual three month check up, so I'll update you all with my results as soon as I get them back. #fingerscrossed for good numbers. Please send your love and positive vibes my way. We'll get the results a few days.
Hi! My name is Hank. I'm a happy, outgoing, spoiled rotten puppy living in Tacoma, WA. I was born June 19, 2016 and my mommy and daddy brought me home August 17, 2016. We have had a wonderful 3 months together! On November 29- our vet told us I have Renal Dysplasia. I am not sure exactly what that means, but my mom and dad haven't stopped crying since then. They told me that they are going to make sure I have the BEST LIFE possible, and they want to share my story with the world. So, please join us in following our journey and all the fun we're going to have together. #pitbull#tricolorpitbull#spreadtherumer#renaldysplasia#kidneydisease#puppiesofinstagram#pitbullsofinstagram
This adorable pup (how I still see Neddy😊), turned 2 yrs & 5 mths, 4 days ago. His strong little kidneys are keeping him going strong & keeping him healthy. Blessed each and everyday that he is here with us. He brings a smile to my face, makes me feel overwhelming unconditional love, and makes me belly laugh, and much much more, at least once a day. Here's to many many more months & years ahead😍🐶🐾 #neddymyblinddog#love#labsofinstagram#blinddogsofinstagram#renaldysplasia#survivor#adoptablinddog
Finding something for Neddy to chew & clean them teefies on is hard because he can't have anything high in protein (only 11% or less in protein allowed). So carrots are a good alternative but he eats them super fast. So this came to me when I was putting toys in this toy I got from "Petbarn" (not Petcity), for him to get out & did it with the ball version of this toy. This one fits carrots perfectly, and now takes Neddy about 10mins to finish! 😁😆🐶🐾 #neddymyblinddog#dogtoyideas#labsofinstagram#renaldysplasia#blinddogsofinstagram#adoptablinddog#petbarn
Part one in a series of videos soon to be released titled, "I Can't Catch" by Lily Martin. Seriously, though, this was the moment I discovered that I truly cannot catch, in this case a tiny snowball. So, I'm determined to learn...in the safest way possible and with the best treats in the world. Bucket list item #35 added to the list: catch something in my mouth. Please note: no Lily was harmed in the making of these films. #icantcatch#bucketlist#lilystrong#slomo
Great news, IG Friends! This is me waiting for my turn at Dr. White's office where I got a blood and urine test and found out that my numbers are even better than last time- my creatinine dropped from 2.0 to 1.9! My calcium is back to almost normal and my phosphorus is almost normal as well. My parents are amazed and so incredibly happy. Your good vibes and prayers are working- keep um' coming and I'll keep up my adventures! #lilystrong#celebrate#bucketlist#lilyslist
