Still no clue

Sorry but we are not yet returning to our regularly scheduled blog. The latest lab results are still not conclusive. The tests are not coming back indicating cancer but we are still not getting an answer as to what is wrong with Tasha. We're doing one more test tonight that is specific for Blastomycosis. This is a test that this clinic has never done before and is fairly new. Allegedly, it is 97% accurate and the sample is being couriered to a different lab in Indianapolis. If we do not get an answer with this test, we're going to get Tasha referred to the U of MN. We may have to pay for some of these tests again but as long as we find an answer, we will do anything and everything that is needed. It is challenging to try to keep everything light-hearted at home so the girls don't pick up on the emotions.

In the spirit of what this blog was intended for, I'll turn it back over to the girls for a comment.

Tasha - Dad took me for a ride in the DUV again. For some reason, we don't go anywhere fun anymore like the park. But at least today when we got to where we were going, Momma was there. I love Momma but not as much as I love Dad. She buys us treats and shares her food but Dad takes us for walks and to the park.

Eva- Park!! Did you say Park?

Tasha - We are not going to the park, I was just explaining that I love Dad more because he takes us to the park and plays with us every day when he gets home.

Eva - Hmmm, I'm not sure who I love more. Dad throws my ball further but Momma protects me from big boomies and puts my storm shirt on. I'm going to my kennel to think about this.

Tasha - 5..4..3..2..1.. Eva already forgot what she was thinking about. She's dumb.

Hi Tasha and Eva!

I hope you get the test results soon... It must be hard for your humans to keep things light-hearted, but I'm so glad they're trying! We love you all...

Tasha, I hope you'll be able to go to the park with Eva again! You both used to have so much fun there together.

And Eva, I think you'd better get your brain sharpened up a bit... Do you know who you like better now? Mom or Dad? Hee hee.

Sorry you don't have any solid answers yet, but know that we are all still praying for you & keeping our paws crossed. I sure hope you get to go to the park again soon, Tasha. I am sure you and Eva are overdue for some fun times. Give Mom & Dad plenty of kisses because they love you very, very much.
Pawsitive healing energy coming your way.

Wooo, it must be terribly frustrating to go through all this and still not know what's causing the problem, but it's great news that they don't indicate cancer. We're all thinking of all of you, and still throwing our vibes your way.

It must be really frustrating for your mom and dad at this time. We hope this next test provides some answers!

Steve and Kat

PS. We love our mom more than dad. She gives treats and dad doesn't very often.

I think it's great that you're running things past another Lab. I mean, what if the first one was distracted and went to play fetch or something? :) Just kidding!
You know we love you, Tasha, and are praying like crazy for you and your family!
