    DV230 Retrospective

    Too many photos for one post, so if you're interested in my take on the trip, find it here. Props to the rest of the DV230ers, I've enjoyed the posts and pictures on the Facebooks.

    Hubs died on his second birthday from Addison's Disease. We got his diagnosis 12 hours too late.

    Im sorry for your loss, my condolences. After reading about it, it sounds as if its very difficult to diagnosis.

    It's only through process of elimination. It's easy to check the Na:K ratio, but it's never the first thing a vet or a doctor would look for because of its relative infrequency. Once in "Addison's Crisis," if not caught quickly, the Na crashes and the K levels in the body spikes, and the person's (or dog in our case) heart stops. JFK was a sufferer. Once diagnosed, it's pretty easy to manage. It's just not a quick process getting to that diagnosis, and minutes count, as in our case. It makes me happy that he really enjoyed his last roadtrip. It was a bittersweet return to Death Valley, though i thoroughly enjoyed it (and he would have LOVED that red mud!).
