Hi Silly Sab readers; its Mama!
I know Sab's told you that he was diagnosed with diabetes earlier this month. He's still planning on telling you all about his odyssey and the torture he's been put through, but right now he's taking a well deserved nap.
He & I have been back and forth to see Dr. David just about every day this week. He started insulin on Monday evening. I have been home testing him to keep an eye on his sugar levels.
Based on those tests, today Dr. David declared Sebastian DIET CONTROLLED. This means that putting him on wet food a couple weeks ago was the best step & its been enough! He doesn't need insulin right now! I am so very relieved to get this news. I'm sure he is too!
Continue to purr for him, as this could very well be just a temporary thing. He needs to stay on predisone for his asthma, and that pill can really mess with blood sugar. It's probably responsible for him having diabetes now. Thankfully he's not had breathing issues.
I'll be purring for him.
