|Georgie after a drink|
WED PM UPDATE - Saw Georgie - she is perkier and doing better. Her blood glucose is finally coming down and she seems more comfy. She will be able to come home Thurs PM if all goes well. Glad I brought her in when I did - hopefully they caught the ketoacidosis in the early stages and we can get her regulated for insulin. Kind of upset at the ER vets for missing this. They will hear it from me on Thurs! Keep purring until she comes home please.
UPDATE - so far Georgie has a UTI plus her blood showed a tiny bit of keytones from her glucose running high. They will do a full blood panel and xrays if needed. Sounds like the ER vet missed a bunch of things! Glad I took her to her regular vet today. Georgie is getting IV fluids and antibiotics to start with. Will let you know more as I get more info, Keep the purrs coming!!! Thanks.
I have not blogged in a while because we are having health issues with Georgie, our diabetic cat. She was at the ER vet two weeks ago - dehydration, kidney values up a bit and high blood glucose. After fluids for two days, antibiotics and a change in insulin she seemed to be back to nrmal.
She stopped eating yesterday. I had just brought her in for a check up on Monday and she was OK - not great but doing better. I am bringing her in to the vet today and we will see what is what. I am afraid there is something else going on with her and not just the diabetes. I have been assist feeding her to keep her from getting hepatic lipidosis again.
Please keep her in your thoughts and purr hard for her. She has had a rough year.
