    Yesterday. Caber Yr 2 Day 60

    Last night her glucose spiked late but then came down, kind of odd but it is what it is. Amps is lower than yesterday so that's good.

    Going to check who is in the tree and who is at the Tiki Hut.

    Something I noticed the last couple of days, her tail is up when she is walking now. When she first got here and for the longest time it always hung down. She never wagged it. vet has said numerous times she thinks there has been some spinal nerve damage in the past. You could never touch it without her reacting. Certainly couldn't brush it. And she never sat on her butt. In the last year, her tail would be half up, still no sitting, was able to touch back and tail twice before she tried to bite you. Lately her tail is completely up when walking, wags it when laying down, allows brushing at a light touch and sits on her butt when eating. The last couple of poops have drained the glands which is good so I guess the one vet was right about the fiber.

    Husband goes for post op echo this morning. I told him this time if they tell him he needs to be admitted, then he better listen and go.

    That sounds great that Ollie is wagging her tail again! I hope she keeps feeling better and isn't so sensitive.
    Prayers the echo looks good and no hospitalization is necessary for DH.
    Hoping you have a nice day and feel well:bighug:

    Kitchen-no. Counter goes in Monday, backsplash Wednesday. Really don't want to put anything in top drawers til counter is on. One cabinet door still needs different hinges so I don't want to fill that up yet since the will have to drill.

    I really don't like having to sweep the floor constantly. Oh but it looks good.

    I love hearing about Olive's tail, what a great sign that she is feeling really well, I'm glad her glands aren't impacted or anything either.

    a high up tail is a confident kitty :cat::cat::cat:
