Steph, OMG I am so sorry that Kelso is not doing well.

I am with MaxaLisa on suggesting the use of 2 different ABX. The one time that DeeDee go so ill so fast, the Vet gave her a cocktail of 3 different ABX. So at times I think aggessive use of multiple ABX is a good choice.

Since he has been on long term Pred, my question is are they sill giving it. With long term usage taper off is the only method suggested.

hello again

Got home a bit ago, spent some more time with Kels, he is comfortable with some things from home except for the cone he is wearing

His mouth has looked worse all day so not sure what is up with that yet. They shaved his elbow where he has the swelling and drainage. She wants to rule out necrotizing fasciitis because of the fact that it came up over less than 24 hours. So he has a surgery consult for the morning. They are doing "hydrotherapy" for the elbow.

The vet started him on clindamycin and ampicillin IV as she is concerned for staph/strep with the elbow. His white count is "very low" I do not have exact numbers just what she told me. She stated this suggested sepsis. He is having cultures of all the fluids in his body sent (urine, blood, wound).
His hemoglobin, MCV and RBC's are ok. Platlets low.
His vital signs are stable, still running a fever but improved.

This is all very confusing, turning into something I never expected and not sure we really know what is going on for sure.

I am going to get some sleep and tuck Allie in, going back tomorrow

thank you

the clindamycin will treat babesia, which can cause this, among other things.

Oh my gosh, great big XOXO to Kelso (and his loving sister) and to you both - worrying about him - it's so hard. I am so hoping that these things will hit him hard and help him bounce back. This is...good thoughts and prayers.
