Well it was moderately traumatic, but we all got through it. I had to bring in Marina four times to do the blood glucose test over the whole day. And they determined she needed human insulin and wanted me to bring her in again for the test. I managed to get a bottle of insulin from a friend since it was close to $300 even with the company’s “coupon.” And I bought a blood glucose meter and figured out how to get a drop of blood from her ear. Marina was far less traumatized than I was by the whole process. I now have her stabilized around 200. She eats like a wild thing in the morning. And then it evens out throughout the rest of the day. She’s gained back the weight. She’s not sucking down 3 cups of water a day. And I don’t have to clean out the litter box three times a day. We’re all quite a bit happier now.
