I've been meaning to write an update on Samantha for a few weeks. Overall she's been doing quite well, considering. She's still diet-controlled, but off appetite stimulants she won't eat very much. I put her back on them a week or so ago. I'd been letting her have dry food, because she wanted it and I was happy that she was eating anything. When she started the stimulants she wanted more of it and I let her. Her blood glucose went up to 157 - this is just barely out of the optimal range, but it's enough to make her litterbox smell like honey - and I've switched her to wet food only. I've also been trying her on different flavors and so far I've learned that she only likes certain consistencies and doesn't seem to have much interest in fish. Her blood glucose is down to 94 as of this morning, which is right where we want it. So that's good.
What's going on right now, though, is that this morning after I fed her and medicated her and all that she threw up. It was thin and soupy, which is generally a bad sign, and there was a little bit of blood in it. I called my vet, who said they're booked solid today but give her more Pepcid, watch her, and if she throws up again to take her to Angell. Right now she's asleep on the couch. I'm trying to tempt her with food I know she likes and not to freak out because on top of this I have a final exam that I have to take this weekend.
