Last July, my husband and I were in a bad auto accident and I ended up in the ER with a fractured neck(C2). I have had to ware a large neck brace ever since. I called home and talked to my granddaughter, Summer, and asked her to give Callie her insulin, after testing and feeding her. If Summer hadn't watched me do it many times, I don't know what I would have done. A few days later, when I was still in the hospital, my daughter, Sandy, called in tears, Summer wasn't home and Sandy couldn't get any blood out of Callie's ear. Callie usually got 3 u of insulin, but without testing I didn't was to risk giving her the full dose, so I told her to only give 2u instead. Once I came home from the hospital, I learned that I could test Callie's BG if someone put Callie on my lap.Now I am strong enough that I can handle it all by myself. I just want everyone to understand how important it is to have several people trained to take care of your cat.
