I've been away from FDMB while dealing with my own problems - after effects of a concussion due to auto accident this year (recently dx as a closed head injury), unemployment, my parents on hospice, major leaks in the roof of my house, and more, depression due to all of the above. Having difficulty coping. I'm a terrible pet parent. I ran out of test strips and had to do without for a while until I could buy some more. I had to buy different food for a while - still mostly low carb. I've been giving insulin all along and testing again now for about a week - but haven't been keeping the spreadsheet. Pretty Girl's numbers have been high and today I increased to 1.75u. Pretty Girl didn't seem too good yesterday. Late last night I tested for ketones using the new blood ketone meter and it showed 2.2. I called the ER (3-1/2 hours away) and they recommended to monitor and test again in a few hours. I gave Pretty Girl some water with a bit of tuna juice mixed in and she drank it and seemed to feel better. Then I mixed much more water than usual in her food - currently Nature's Variety Instinct Original Chicken - and she ate really well like she was very hungry. She drank more water and I saw her drinking water several times through the night. She ate a decent amount this morning and I've seen her use the litter box a few times. She seems some better this morning but when I tested for ketones again this morning it showed 2.7. We are headed to the vet soon (also 3-1/2 hours away and we are having a tropical storm). Is there anything I should be doing now before going to the vet? Please give me your advice. I got almost no sleep last night due to the worry.
