Diary of a Ruddy Aby

Keep Calm and Carry On

This popular phrase seems to fit my situation at this point.
I'm feeling better and more able to enjoy my daily life, I love my brushings, fresh air, naps and my appetite is good. My lungs continue to show some clearing-but lung disease is complicated and there is still uncertainty and concern.
My blood sugar is slowly responding to the insulin and I'm now on 4 units twice daily. Mom has been concerned with the dose going up about 'crashes' but Dr. P explained how to help me if this should happen and that the insulin for kitties is such an improvement over using human insulin that this is less likely.
Mom says I've been angelic about all this, I don't mind my shots and I behave like a gentleman at the vet, well, after all, my name is Gentleman Jack :)
We'll go back in a week for another check and meanwhile, will work at Keeping Calm and Carrying On...if I were a human, I'd fix myself a nice pot of tea and sit down with a good book.
Hugs and purrs, Gentleman Jack

This is good to hear, Mr. Jack! And if you need any book suggestions, I could probably make some recommendations! I had a cartoon on that subject... :)
