    Well, so much for not raising his dose! I don't know where these numbers are coming from all of a sudden, his teeth, I guess? I have upped him to 2.75, hope that will start to bring them down. I also opened a new pen, in case the one I was using has lost efficacy.

    In my own seemingly endless round of health issues of late, I've just been notified that the doctor will be calling me today with bad news regarding some lab work. It's funny, other than respiratory problems that I've had for years, I thought I was relatively healthy; now I'm starting to wonder what's keeping me alive, they've found so many things wrong with me lately! I am getting very tired of running from one specialist to the next and getting poked and prodded.

    It's true, when it rains it pours! :arghh:

    You, me and Noah. I asked out vet once what exactly is keeping him going, she just scratched her head. He has a big heart figuratively and literally.
    Betcha my list is bigger than yours. Certainly has a lot of unpronounceable and never heard of things. I got a long hard stare from a doctor admitting me to pre-op for some minor day surgery, "You.....actually have this?"
    You and Squallie need a spa day. :smuggrin:

    I think the high BG is making Squallie feel crappy. He has been hiding most of the day and won't come to me when I call him. I feel so bad for him! And upping his dose to 2.75 doesn't seem to be helping at all. I will hold this dose another day, then I am increasing to 3U if he still is in high numbers.

    Perfect. Just what L and the stripey man needs.

    Sometimes I think the well meaning quacks should just shut their gobs and let people live a little, instead of giving them the scary monsters.

    Whatever the latest pothole is , I hope it is soonest mended or turns out to be simply something that can be lived with, give or take a bit.

    Thanks, Beth. I'm worried about Squallie, this behavior is very unusual for him. I think his tum may be bothering him, too, he had a nasty poo earlier, and doesn't seem particularly interested in food or treats. And it's been a very long time since he's had umbers this high. Poor sweet boy.

    Lucy, as far as tummy troubles have you given him SEB ? That’s our answer to all things GI yuck around here for kitties and hoomans alike.:) I give Elmo 1/8 t mixed in water or aloe Vera twice a day every day . Just a thought :bighug:

    Thanks, Lou. He got his name because, as a tiny kitten, he would open his little mouth and squall for all he was worth, lol! He was very vocal, to say the least!

    Thank you so much, Beth. I'm worried about his health, and I'm scared to death for him to be under anesthesia for 2 1/2 hours. I've had a long talk with him, and told him that his job is just to wake up when the surgery is over! I hope I've impressed upon him what an important job this is!
    As for his tum, I haven't given him anything yet; I didn't realize that he might have an upset stomach until after dinner. If he still feels yucky in the morning I will try the SEB, and thank you for reminding me of it! :bighug:❤️:bighug:

    You tell that stripey man that me and Ty says that it isn't all that much cop to not wake up. Squalls is to stay right where he, his IMs and his L are. The world cares not if he has gnashers or not..:cat:
