    http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/...d-hit-a-green-72-today-6.196935/#post-2204512

    She's eating a ton of food - it's exactly like when she was in higher BGs acro style. I didn't give her the cipro today, just the cerenia. I want to see if she still eats so much without the cipro. I'm not positive, but she may have gained a whole pound.

    Her bouncing is alarming, and predictable. Red at AMPS and PMPS, and hitting low blue or high green in between.

    ????? Is it possible that her acro tumor is growing again? ?????

    Sorry TiTi is being so bouncy. I don't know anything about acro. Maybe @Wendy&Neko can answer your question. I hope she continues to eat without the cipro. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Anything's possible, but I don't think that's what's happening here. I suspect, as I said before, you shouldn't have increased. You were getting to the 50's at 2.5 units. Now she's taking dives, which are causing bounces. Let's see what happens when the 3.0 unit depot drains. Hopefully she'll get better numbers.

    Glad to hear her appy is back. :) It's be great if she's gaining again.

    Glad to hear that. I was worried that her appetite increasing was due to the tumor growing.
    Yes, that makes sense about the dives because she hit 72 yesterday midday. A pattern is developing wherein she is red at AMPPS and PMPS, with dives around her usual nadir.
    As to the training from the 25th to the 30th, I think that if my sitter can do everything TiTi needs in order to continue doing ok, then it's better for TiTi to be at home. She's almost blind , so trying to figure out where to step in 2 new places, well 3 actually, is just not comfortable and will cause stress. A 2 day car trip is not exactly a nice experience for a cat who's sick. and needs frequent feeding, like every 2 hours.

    I think if you can get her numbers a bit more stable, even in the low to mid yellows before you leave that you will feel comfortable. The vet tech can always post here too for advise.

    I am so happy she is eating again. That is such great news. :bighug::bighug: These kitties are tough cookies. :cat:

    Good idea to have Titi stay in her home while you are away. She will be much more comfortable. I hope everything will go smoothly and that her good appetite continues.

    I think part of the problem is that she gets bored with her usual food, no matter how good it is. Can't blame her. I'm the same way.
