Because we haven't had ENOUGH at the House of Sprout, Sassy woke up sick again this morning. And because our life doesn't stop when someone is sick, we still had to take Bruiser to the dentist and then take Sassy for blood work. Last night the doctor called...from his house...at 8:00 at night...because he was concerned about her previous blood work. Her iron levels were low but not the levels of her stored iron. If both were low then it could simply be a case of anemia and be resolved with supplements. But in her case, one level was normal. So then he rattled off a big name for some rare disorder and threw in the words "bone marrow" and I proceeded to freak out! Luckily the concern is with her red blood cell and not the very scary white blood cells. So, sick or not, we headed off to take care of the blood work and are now waiting (not very patiently) for the results tomorrow and how to proceed from here. It may be a VERY long night (with possibly lots of wine to help!). Just look at that sad sleepy face...Sassy HATES blood work and wears herself out crying "owie!"
All that said, we welcome all prayers and positive thoughts...and will keep you updated as we learn more!
