Sick cat blogging

My cat Titan went to the vet this morning for his blood tests to see how his diabetes is coming along. He hasn't been feeling well lately. His limping is worse and he's been peeing all over everything. He's also even grouchier than usual.

We dropped him off at eight. His glucose was 128. By two it was twenty. Twenty!! By 4:30 he bottomed out and was on iv glucose. He's spending the night at the hospital and we're sending his blood and urine out for a comprehensive panel.

This means I have to get up at an ungodly hour again tomorrow and shift him home. Assuming he's well enough to come home that is. Then he goes back again for another blood test in the middle of the week. And we're going to switch him to wet cat food, which is usually a no no.

Oh what an expensive cat he is. That's expensive in both monetary and emotional terms.
