    Good evening,

    Binies bg on the new dose is really horribly high. I hope that does not make the ketones get up again.
    The day started positive with Binie eating on her own and being much more agile. I started with 3 IU this morning and her bg stayed high all day after a high night. I really hope it is going down tonight.

    I was very nervous testing ketones today. But I pricked her ear many times and now blood came. The vet finally managed and the ketones at +10 have been 0,4 mg/dl. Not good but also not so bad. I hope they don't go up more.

    The vet was very pleased to see that Binie is eating again and had no temperature. I asked her for ondansetron in case Binie stops eating again. As Binie was highly stressed in the clinic we decided to postpone the ultrasound and x-ray and see if the positive trend continous. She told me to measure ketones and bring her for infusions if they go too much up again.

    I am feeling very much conflicted at the moment how much diagnostics I want to put Binie trough. She suffered quite a lot the last month and I hope she can have some rest now. I really pray the 3 IU will do their job.

    Hope everyone is having a relaxed and safe night! :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Hi Heike, I’m so glad Binie was eating better today and it sounds like in less pain.

    Im sending you prayers for her to heal well and feel better with no bad ketones.
    Your plan sounds reasonable and as the vet said she could get more fluids if needed.
    Hoping she can spend some time at home recovering, where she is more relaxed and happy, with you.
    I hope you have a restful night with your sweet kitty :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Thanks for your support Staci! :bighug::bighug::bighug: Sleeping was difficult as I was so nervous about being away a lot in the next three days. My job requires that and I am a single caretaker for Binie. I hope everything goes well and she doesn't neet infusions. But if it's like that, we have to deal with it somehow. I hope for you and Ivy everything came back to normal!

    Thank you Diane! So far I see too much black and red in the spreadsheet but it seems to change now and at the moment she goes down nicely. So your prayers helped! :bighug::bighug::bighug:
