July 2003 Archives

If you've been keeping tabs on the crew here for a while, you know that Yuki was diagnosed with chronic renal failure last year.

Although chronic renal failure is progressive, incurable at this time and ultimately terminal, the condition can be managed for months and even years with a decent quality of life. Yuki was originally diagnosed in April 2002 and since that time has had her diet changed twice; first to a lower-protein non-prescription premium diet, and then to a prescription kidney diet. She is still eating and drinking well on her own (in later stages of CRF it is likely she will not be able to do so) but she has lost quite a bit of weight and one kidney has atrophied quite a bit. Her blood work also indicates that it is now time for her to receive subcutaneous fluid therapy in order to help rehydration and to help her kidneys process waste. Want to know MORE... ?
