Visiting Dr. B. yesterday, Missy's blood sugar came in at a surprising 87! It means the insulin therapy is working very, very well putting her sugar level inside the "normal" range. Blood was screened for other issues as she still has some skin problems and it was found she has an elevated white count. So now Missy gets daily doses of insulin, thyroid medication, and an antibiotic. Meanwhile Tasha threw up three times yesterday (July 3) which has me worried. Continuing her cortisone. So far, she has eaten today without regurgitating so I'm hoping it was a fluke.
Missy had better results at her vet's than I had at my physician's. The technician couldn't get a blood sample from me for my own screening! So it was basically a wasted appointment for me. Like we say around this house… the cats get better medical care than do we.
