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!!)
When we got in there there was a really loud dog and i tried to hide from him!
Simon was very happy to get out of his carrier.
I tried to squeeze behind the fridge but the nurse caught me!!
So the diagnosis is that I have diabetes. All other systems are functioning great but my blood sugar is all out of whack!!
On 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!
I’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.
This means a lifestyle change for all of us, but I’m sure it will all work out fine!!
