    Good morning L&L,
    I have a full day ahead of me, Shmee was with DH yesterday during the day (I should have told him to test him prior to +6.5 :eek:!) and will be with him again today. HC gravy is ready :)

    Thanks for the tip about spritzing the car with Feliway before a stop @Wendy&Neko. Great tip, something easy I can do since I will be in the car alone. I am thinking I am going to try and plan my stops for when he needs another Gabapentin dose. I just emailed my vet to ask how often I should plan on giving it to him.
    I hope everyone has a nice Sunday. :cat:

    Glad you have backup to help with Shmee and are getting out of the house. It's very important for caregivers to get a break. :bighug:

    His SS is looking amazing.

    I am leaving Sunday the 26th. His appointment is at 10am Monday morning to meet with the doctor and get his MRI. The surgery is Tuesday the 28th.

    Thanks yesterday I had a "paint and sip" where for a friends bachelorette party, we drank wine and painted a canvas. That was fun :) And this morning I went out to breakfast with my dad and checked out this park I reserved for a family reunion picnic, which is actually the Saturday before I leave :blackeye:... And about to be headed out soon for a memorial for one of my good friends dads who passed away. Trying to fit in my training too, busy busy busy over here!

    AM +7 = 60, went back down and totally surprised me.
    We are leaving here soon to go to a memorial I cannot miss, I have never left him this low before.... so I gave him 2 tsp HC gravy and then added 1 tsp of HC gravy to his LC meal too since we won't be back until PMPS. Hoping / assuming he should be ok..... so hard to leave.

    I am thinking I will reduce him tonight to 4, so we don't have the depot issue like last time. @Wendy&Neko sound good?

    Sure, a reduction sounds good. No reason to keep him solid green if you can find a dose that keeps him most of the time below renal threshold.

    Be good Shmee!

    Shmee's spreadsheet looks great. You are taking great care of him. I can't believe Shmee's appointment is coming up so soon. That is so exciting.

    Here is what you get after it all works out (almost 2 years later).
