Update below

PRAY FOR: Otto 13 yo. Liver and Kidney Disease. Lord Jesus we ask that Your will for Otto, Nixie, Mom Heather and Dad Tom would prevail. Give them Your peace whatever happens in the hours to come. They have lost so much this year with precious Lulu’s death, 2 cases of cancer, job loss and more. You know the state of their hearts. We know that You will not give us more temptation than we can bear. Show Your promises to be true. In the Name of El Shaddai, God is all sufficient (Almighty). Amen. <3 Caren

Nehemiah 9:31 But in your great mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for you are a gracious and merciful God.
I’m sorry to say [this, but] I don’t think there is going to be one sweetie.
Heather Rammer
I know
Prayers for Pets
God will not abandon you and Tom, no matter what

Heather Rammer
I don’t know how to do this again
Prayers for Pets
I know my dear, it’s so cruel. No one does…
You are infinitely loved by a Savior who gave everything for you
Heather Rammer
I am so angry that we will not have much time with him

Heather Rammer

Prayers for Pets replied to Heather

Heather Rammer

I’m working on a post. Any news?
Heather Rammer
They are putting Foley catheter in him to monitor urine and possibly a feeding tube and keep on ivf and med to lower Bp. Said there is a possibly that he had a clot to his kidney do putting on blood thinner to prevent further
Prayers for Pets
Hmmm, so could all of this present bc of the clot?
Heather Rammer
With a low albumin big risk of clot no way to be certain but trying to prevent one in future
Prayers for Pets
OK, I’m praying for God’s very best plan for you all…. I’d like a pic of Nixie to add to the post

Heather Rammer

Prayers for Pets
Ok, I think
Prayers for Pets
He’s going viral

Screenshot of conversation in Messenger. All of the groups Otto was posted for prayer. He had thousands of people praying for him.

Heather Rammer
Just spoke to vet tech said he is resting comfortablely. We were going to go see him but they have a catheter draining his urine for the night. I don’t want to get him all excited and I am not sure Tom can handle it, so we will take the girls for a walk. Pray tonight that we will have better labs and we can get him home for awhile
Prayers for Pets
Awww, OK luv
Heather Rammer
Just spoke to vet . Otto is more awake ate little on own last night and this am. Slight improvement with creatine down little over 1 pt. She said with the gentle hydration they go slow . Bp better 130. They are starting him on phosphorus binder which will help him feel better. Making good urine. Protein 1.8. He does have a urinary tract infection so that may account for some of this sudden kidney failure. We are staying the course. She said he was much more alert and looking around. 🙏🙏🙏 he will be there at least few more days.
Prayers for Pets
How did you know I was just about to ask? Good ☺️💗🙏
Heather Rammer
Great minds think alike 😊
Prayers for Pets
Hallelujah, this is good news 😃
Heather Rammer
He has a long way to go we are going to go see him tonight

Prayers for Pets
No wonder he’s making a comeback! A Lot of love out there💗🙏
Heather Rammer
This is wonderful I am so thankful
Prayers for Pets
Pray for my hands. I don’t know if you’ve seen my post about the fires here we have no air to breathe.
Heather Rammer

We got to see him tonight
Prayers for Pets
How did he seem?
Prayers for Pets
The Pic just came through now – so sweet. Hi Otto 👋☺️
Heather Rammer
So so gave me kisses and wanted to snuggle. He stopped shaking when I wrapped him up. Hopefully we have good labs in am. His urine looked good

Prayers for Pets
Urine?
Heather Rammer
From his catheter nice and clear yellow. Still waiting on vet to call with updates
Prayers for Pets
Excellent! Is he home with you?
Heather Rammer
No
Spoke to the tech she took him outside he enjoyed that, waiting on vet to call with lab results. Tech said he seems to be feeling better then yesterday so I am praying his labs will reflect improvements
Prayers for Pets

His creatine is down to 5.2 that’s great, bad news the protein Amt from his urine last week is off the charts high. So unless we can get the number down he will not have a very long quality life. So they are adjusting his Bp meds we just ordered a new diet for kidney and bowel issues. He is still being syringe fed. I am so hoping we can get this miracle. I feel like we are fighting time to get this all in place
Prayers for Pets
Ok. I did an update post today I will add this to it. Have you been giving him enzymes or betaine HCL for digestion? You might want to talk to your vet about that.

Heather Rammer

I can ask tmrw. She did say his bowel seems to be setting down
