OK, for those who asked: Bear's first kidney values (from when he was FIRST
admitted to "2nd vet" on Monday morning were as follows:
bun this am was 127 mg dl...
glucose was 420...
creatine was 9.2 mg dl.

Again, keep in mind he was VERY dehydrated when these were taken.

**Those aren't great numbers, but I'd really like to see a current value with
the rehydration. Also, it would be good to know what his values were before
surgery as a comparison.

Acute kidney failure is very dangerous, but often the kidneys do bounce back
from it. Hopefully the level of fluids and the urination will continue and
his kidneys will improve as the sugar drops and his hydration status improves.**
