02/23 (beautiful cycle!)
I hope Gizmo keeps feeling good and surfing for you this weekend.
Gizmo is in a groove
Looking good, Gizmo!
Lizzie, after the recent past , you have earned this improvement in all things Gizmo .......happy happy Weekend
And I went BTB and actually went back to sleep and hubby got up at +2 to test for me! So I feel much, much better.
He is eating great too. First dose of Epogen will be this evening. @Beth 73 I gave him his first dose(?) of Nux Vomica at +2 this morning too. I have a follow up with Dr. Pat on Monday. Oh, and the daily capsules (with BP and Cerenia every other day) are a breeze. He is swallowing them now without even needing to be forced with water. We got the grove going!
Great news and a very good start for Gizmo!
Nice report on Gizmo, and you!
Lizzie, I am over the moon for you and Gizmo My civvie brothers just went thru a week long round of twice daily Nux during a stomach upset time . That and SEB has them set to rights once again Again, my heart is so glad for you and Gizmo !!!!
OMG! Yayyy!!! Gizmo
AMPS=154, +2=139, +4=91, +6=79, +8=90, +10=103
1st dose of Epogen in. It seems a bit leaked (very little) out but it was our first go around - we will get better.
Prayers for success with the Epogen, Lizzie and that it helps sweet Gizmo
I hope it helps and glad Gizmo is doing well. Yay for easy pilling too!
Are Gizmo's gums pale? Or will you have to do bloodwork to judge his hematocrit improvement on epogen?
I'm so glad you are having some smoother sailing.
It is based on his bloodwork. We have a full panel/follow-up scheduled on 03/08 and based on that we will evaluate the plans for going forward. It is based on both his hematocrit and PCV. Labs are all on the labs tab if you want to look.
Yes, you will. And there's no hurry. 19% is not critical.
It wasn't much that leaked out. Hubby gave the shot but I was right there. We weren't sure if it would hurt him (sting/burn) so we double teamed. I also used the syringes they gave with the epogen and they needles are 1/2" and a larger gauge and that may have something to do with it. I can (and may in the future) use his regular insulin syringes.
