Back to the Vet’s…

Mom took me back to the vet yesterday. My tummy was out of sorts but I’m better now. I told her I didn’t have to go but she said the appointment was made and I was going.

I guess it was a good thing because my blood sugar was super high and Dr. U started me on insulin today. I’m a little bummed about that but if it helps me feel better then I’ll get used to it.

Thank you for your prayers. I appreciate it so much.

Now for some fun news! I finally figured out what my theme for this year’s A to Z challenge! It’s a secret for now but I’ll let you know what it is soon!

Thanks, Auntie…

My auntie set out this basket by the front door to collect keys and stuff. But I know she really left it there for me to sleep in until Mom gets home from work.

Thanks, Auntie!!

Vet visit update

So here’s what happened at the vets! (Sorry it took so long for the update. Mom’s rather lazy these days when it comes to blogging. Bad Mama!!)

vets 1 When we got in there there was a really loud dog and i tried to hide from him!

vets 2 Simon was very happy to get out of his carrier.

 

vets 3I tried to squeeze behind the fridge but the nurse caught me!!

 

vets 4 So the diagnosis is that I have diabetes. All other systems are functioning great but my blood sugar is all out of whack!!

 

vets 5On the other hand, Simon’s thyroid is out of whack! Thanks to Angel Phoebe (from 15 and Meowing), Simon has some meds to get started with! It’s been several days and already we can see a difference in his desperation to eat all the time. We’re hoping he’ll gain a pound or two!

 

vets 7I’m feeling yukky about being diabetic. I’m on diabetic food right now. Mom is waiting on the insulin I will probably be starting on soon because she wants to talk to my real doctor. The doctor we saw was competent but mom didn’t like her – she had zero bedside manner with us and mom (whatever that means) – so we’re going back in 4 weeks for bloodwork and we’ll see Dr. U then.

 

vets 6This means a lifestyle change for all of us, but I’m sure it will all work out fine!!
