He’s Got It…..


   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.

Good All is well now back to normal hopefully. I wish Obie a rapid response to his shots and you a quick recovery from your Vet experiances. Good early morning blog. See ya soon............

I was SO hoping he did not have it. Good luck with the shots, I know it would be hard for us to do....the things we do for our beloved pets.

So sorry Obie has diabetes but at least it can be treated and I'm sure you and hubby will conquer the needle thing quickly. For Obie's sake.

Yes, lots of animal lovers out here!

Both You and Obie will get used to giving and getting shots faster that You´ll think! He will understand how important this is for him, so he woun´t protest about it. Now he will live a long and good life!

I am so sorry for your Obie! Once you get used to giving him the shots...all should be fine. Just as with a human I would suppose. Is he on a special diet?

I am sorry Obie is fun for him or you either. But treatable, you will get used to it, and get a routine going, and get over the initial nervousness and be OK! I am sure of it! :)

Oh Debbie! I'm just now reading this about your little Obie. I'm glad to know, though, that his condition can be treated, and he can still live a long life.

Don't worry about the injections. It gets easier with practice. Before you know it, you'll be sailing through your day, giving his meds on time like it was second nature.

My son was diagnosed with the kidney disease as an infant, and so had to be on 17 medications every 6 hours. It was crazy, but I got the hang of it all.

He had to have two injections every day, and I was petrified to give these to my baby! But, I made it through. Twelve years later, he had his kidney transplant, and no longer needs those awful shots. I could do those in my sleep, if I had to. Don't worry . . . you'll catch on.

Oh CRAP! lol

I followed your comment here to explain the whole 'free association' thingy, and got distracted by reading your posts. That's my A.D.D. brain for ya! "Oh look . . . a squirrel!"

I put a link in that post to the site where I play the Unconscious Muttering, free association game. Just click on the banner. Her site explains everything.

It's definitely a fun writing exercise, especially if you're experiencing writer's block. Come join! Invite your friends! We'll form a posse! ;o)
