Sorry I have taken so long to get back to you all about our Obie. It has been a crazy few days. Thank you for your comments and for your prayers. That was so sweet of ALL of you! He DOES have diabetes and we are starting his injections this morning. I couldn’t believe it! I am really nervous about it, although I have received instruction from the vet, it’s not easy. I know nothing about needles and my husband hates them. We have to get used to it now. Poor little Obie is doing pretty good considering. I will write more about it this weekend, but for now, I must concentrate on getting this all right, so he is better soon. He is also on antibiotics, every 12 hours for a slight infection. He must get injections of 3cc’s of insulin twice daily, 12 hours apart. That’s a hard one as we are on the go a lot. To come up with a time in the morning and 12 hours later that you will be home, consistently, is not always easy. He also has to eat with those injections. No more treats for Obie and fairly exact amounts of food each feeding. He will be fit as a fiddle soon………….(WE HOPE). Some big changes for him but if we do it right, he will be healthy and happy. I haven’t slept much so if I am not making any sense that is why! Thanks again for your prayers and concerns and your comments.:) There are a lot of animal lovers out there….like us.
St. Francis of Assisi is watching over Obie and he will be fine.
