Worn Out Wednesday

Callie vet update: Callie just returned from the vet. Dr. Shew checked her thoroughly and found no gross signs of tumors, and her mouth is fine, but she's down to only 6 pounds. Dr. Shew drew blood for a geriatric blood screening - liver & kidney function etc. - a CBC and blood sugar test among others, and we'll have the results tomorrow. He suspects that she might have diabetes, since she's eating ravenously and still losing weight, but we should know something for certain tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for your purrs & purrayers - they mean so much!

Rocky: It was a long night last night! At 7 p.m. Callie and I settled on the couch with our human artist to watch the election results, all of us laser-eyed with excitement ... And in the middle of the night, after Callie pooped out on us, I had to beg that silly woman to go to bed and stop shouting "YES WE DID!" .. Today I'm busy giving good luck purrs to Callie, and I hope you can join me. She's going to the vet at 5:30 this evening to find out why she's losing so much weight. I'll let you know just as soon as we have any news, and we're hoping it's all good.

I have paws crossed for Callie. Maybe her lab work will show something they can fix easy, without daily earpriks and insulin.

If she is diabetic, though...I don't know if you ever knew Purrsident Larry from Catifornia, but he was a diabetic kitty, and when his people started feeding him nothing but Fancy Feast Beef Feast, his blood sugar got under such good control that he stopped having to take insulin. That might be worth asking the stabby guy about.

Purrrrrssss for Callie....
