Good morning Team SM!

Special thanks to all of the Aunties and Uncles sending well wishes and keeping Porky in their prayers!

The latest development is that our Vet Specialist's office, Dr. Lee, have already referred us to Mississippi State Veterinarian Medical Center and they have contacted my wife acknowledging they have receives the referral and that the doctors need a day to review overall of Porky medical records and recent examinations and test results and will call us back to let us know if they can help. However, due to a major storm hitting the Mississippi State areas yesterday, everyone had to leave work early so we're told that we should hear back from the doctors today. We'll definitely do our best to keep everyone updated on any major development and discovery. :-)

Good morning Team Porky!

We finally got the appointment scheduled to see the Neurologist at Mississippi State Veterinarian Specialty Center this Thursday at 10:45 AM CST. The plan is to have an MRI performed on Pork Chop to hopefully revealed and confirmed exactly what we are dealing with. The medical staff did confirm that we would know the result of the MRI on the same day.

In addition, when we had the CT SCAN done over last weekend, Dr. Lee also performs a procedure where he removed some of the liquid from Pork Chop's spinal region and sent it off for examination. The result came back yesterday where they found and the Doctor indicated that there were materials found within the liquid that slightly reinforce the initial suspicion of some form of fungal infections or just an infection of some type. Dr. Lee has forward the result to Mississippi State so we will also be consulting with the doctor on Thursday and request to also do a bloodwork and urine test to confirm or ruled out the infection scenario.

Ann and I will be on the road with Porky this afternoon and we'll do our best to post additional updates as we learned more from Thursday's examination and testings.

Vinh & Ann, thank you for the up-date. We are all eager to know what is going on w/PC & holding you up as you go to M-State. I am glad the MRI is scheduled & that the puncture produced more info for the doctors there to evaluate----the fungus idea is an interesting one---fungus usually take a while to grow & diagnose---but we will see. Do you know how long you will be there?
This would have nothing to do w/the liver shunt, would it? I can't remember if he had surgery for that or if you are just working w/diet & meds?
These little ones are tough! I will keep you in my prayers & await more news. Love to Ann.

Vinh and Ann - I hadn't seen this until now. I'm so sorry you're all going through this. As I read through I couldn't believe that they weren't doing an MRI in that last battery of tests. Really to me that was what was called for. Tyler has COMS/Chiari malformation that was diagnosed 5 years ago when he was 6. He had focal seizures which are tiny and we didn't even realize were seizures and we were sent right away to a neurologist to get an MRI and spinal tap if needed. Luckily the MRI told the "tale/tail" of what he had so he didn't even need the spinal tap. I hope that Mississippi can better determine what's going on and what steps are needed for Pork Chop. Tyler is nearly 11 and is doing well so I'm a big fan of a great neuro and dx. Keep us posted and good luck. Hoping you have pet insurance. It's saved us thousands every year.
