Hello everyone, thanks for coming by to see me on Sister Saturday and thank you all for the purrs, prayers and well wishes during my challenging times. I appreciate and love all of you each and every day. Since it’s my turn today I though I’d give you a quick update on what all is going on with me.
I do want to tell you that I am eating on my own again and I’m eating pretty good most days. It sure is a lot less stressful for me although the Dad says I’m really quite cooperative when he does have to feed me by hand. I’ve gained some weight back too which everyone seems pretty happy about.
Apparently I’m quite the challenge as I am a borderline diabetic and the Vets and the peeps are trying to get me back into remission. I get my glucose level checked every morning and if it is too high I have to have a bit of insulin. I’ve always been a bit unusual when it comes to any medicine, they all affect me differently that other kitties. The insulin is no exception. If I’m over 300 in the morning I get 1/2 Unit of insulin. If you’ve ever dealt with a diabetic kitty you will know that is the absolute minimum amount that you can get in a syringe. Just 1/2 unit drops my glucose into the 50s, which is way low and almost dangerous, so I have to have my glucose level checked a couple more times to make sure I don’t have a hypoglycemic problem. So far so good and I’ve only had to have insulin every 5-6 days. The goal is to get me out of the 200 range and into the normal range of 80-100.
So, that’s what is going on with me. Other than that, I’ve been acting pretty much like my normal self and have even been playing with some toys often, which is something I haven’t done in a good long while. Have a fun Saturday everyone, and thanks for stopping by.
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
