Do you think she could be lethargic because her BG is finally approaching normal levels she hasn't felt for a while? Or do I need to worry about cabergoline side effects? Her breathing rate is elevated now while she is resting---between 40 and 50 breaths per minute. I think that is new for today. It motivated me to measure her heart rate, which is low normal 137 to 148. Why is she breathing faster than she should be? It was noisy a while ago, which is why I measured it. I don't hear anything odd now. She is 3 oz heavier today than yesterday. I don't think she has poo'd. If she had pain, I think her heart rate would also be elevated, right? I hope I am just being crazy. I had her BP checked Thursday, just because we hadn't checked it in 6 months. The systolic was around 150, a good number. She wasn't anemic in her blood work a few weeks ago. She gets B12 shots once a week.
