How are you both feeling this AM?
Ravan is off his food since this morning. He had a spoon of Raw liver this morning but nothing else. (I know it's not good to give him too much.) He's also lethargic. Just wants to sleep. When I put him outside he eats grass.
Which usually means he's nauseated. I'm thinking it's from his Bg going up & down ? I am concerned.
My congestion is slowly clearing from the inhaler & antibiotic & I could use a week of sleep other than that I'm hanging in there.
That sounds similar to the symptoms Raven had when you joined. Hope he feels better soon. As for you, I’m glad you’re slowly getting better, but get some rest!
Ravan just vomited clear mucus with white foam. He still won't eat.
His BG is dropping. If it goes too low i might have a problem with food.
( I want to be prepared so i know what to do ) It's stressful waiting an hour in front of the computer for an answer when you're in Panic mode
You have honey if drops too low.
I know you give SEB,are you giving anything else for nausea?
No Slippery Elm always works (so far). I don't understand why he's nauseous. Ravan hardly ever vomits.
I thought Honey is only temporary. That you need to get food into them if BG goes too low?
I don't expect him to drop that low tonight but with Ravan i never know. I rather be prepared.
Yes honey is temporary. Have you tried syringe feeding him?
I remember now( it seems like such a long time ago!) when we started Ravan was nauseated a lot. I thought it was from the insulin.
Yes I have syringe fed him but now that he vomited I'm worried he might vomit if i need to syringe feed.
165 is a safe number, so don’t panic. When did you last syringe him?
Sorry I must not be making myself clear. I haven't felt the need to syringe feed. I was asking so "If he drops low tonight " I'll know what to do.
I don't consider 165 too low I'm referring to if he were to drop below 50.
I see! Sorry I was confused JoyBee.
Is it possible that he just wants/needs to eat less now that he is spending some time in better numbers? Or does he not want to eat at all?
@Judy and Boomer
Good news. Ravan ate a spoon full of raw meat. He must be feeling better.
It wasn't just that he wasn't eating, he was nauseated. He vomited . That's what had me worried.
His bg at +7 was 155 so he's going down slowly. But now that he ate something it might go up a bit before shot time.
Thank you both for checking in with me today.
Sharon, I'm the one that confused you! I get too carried away anticipating what might happen!
I always appreciate your help.
Glad he’s feeling better!
Happy to hear that Ravan ate a bit.
Nice mid-cycle numbers today.
