The tests of our stolen blood are back

Both Perfy and I had our blood stolen this week! Our vet called tonight. Mom's stoopid phone didn't ring so all Mom got was a message but she'll talk to our vet on Monday. Our stolen blood told our vet many things.

My (Kodak) insulin has been increased to 3 units 2x a day! I had a Fructosamine test yesterday and obviously the numbers weren't what our vet was hoping for so she upped my insulin from 2 units 2x a day to 3 units 2x a day!

Perf's stolen blood results are mostly back. Our vet is still waiting for a T4 and another test. But she said that the results look good but that there are subtle changes. She said if the T4 comes back Perfy could have Hyperthyroidism. that might explain his weightloss(he's lost 4 lbs since march) and why he's sleeping under the covers with Mom!

Our vet will be in the office on Monday and mom is supposed to call her then...but I've already started getting my 3units of insulin!

Well, we guess it's good that your bloods were stolen so they could be checked and then if you have any problems, they can be treated....we hope you all are feeling good, though!

Oh dear, we hope you guys are feeling good and that the increased insulin helps!

Sending purrs for all of you to feel good! We hope that Perf doesn't have the hyper disease.

Wishing you a nice weekend,
