AMPS 431 2.0u +7 149 +9 155 Life's been crazy the last couple of days, I kept the SS updated but didn't have time to post a thread! I increased to 2.0u, and I increased his l-lysine because his URI symptoms got worse again. Yesterday Tinkles got down to 125, and he stayed below 300 the entire cycle....very happy with that! Of course, there was the fur shot last night, leading to the 431 this morning....oh well, DH has to learn how to give the insulin shots too! The shorter needles seem better. I think we're moving in the right direction....slowly but surely. I did shoot early this morning (+10.5) to stop the steep rise from the fur shot. Tinkles is laying in my lap, something he hasn't done since before his diagnosis. Yesterday, he let me clip the last few matted clumps out and brush his belly. His coat is soft and silky again, and he gained another 1/2 lb. in the last week. He is definitely feeling a lot better. He still needs to gain more weight, but we're getting there!
