I have to brag about Vinny for a minute. My poor boy has to endure me putting three different eye drops in his eyes, nine times a day. :eek: Not to mention my usual poking and prodding that goes along with this diabetes thing. :( He has not given me an ounce of trouble, he has not balked or ran. It's obvious he doesn't feel well, but he has been nothing but cooperative. I am so proud of him!

I hope Vinny's feeling better with the drops - that is a *lot*, poor thing (and poor you, too)!

Took Vinny in for a check up on his eye. It is slowly getting better, however she said that his third eyelid may stay pulled up like it is...time will tell. She did take him off one of his eye drops and cut one to once a day so now we're down to just 4 times a day I have to put eye drops in his eyes. He was so good for the vet...they even checked his eye pressure and he just let them. :) Proud Momma here!

Funny story, when she told me about Vinny eyelid, she compared it to Bell's Palsy and asked if I was familiar with it. I just started laughing...my husband had a bad case of shingles on his chest, neck and face this past April-May and it caused Bell's Palsy. :D So now Vinny has something similar.:rolleyes: (Just recently, John was diagnosed with pre-diabetes...my husband and dog seem to be sharing diseases!)

Vinny could use some prayers. :( He hasn't been moving around very well lately and the vet and John and I thought he was showing signs of arthritis. We had him at the vet last Friday. Tuesday, he decided he didn't really want to eat. :eek: You all know Vinny, he has to be really sick not to eat. We called the vet, added Tramadol and some canned food to entice him and it worked. Then last night he wanted nothing to do with food and John found a large lump under his chest. With the obvious pain he was in, not eating and the lump, we decided to go to the ER. They found another harder lump in his belly. :( They did bloodwork (his white cells were up a bit), needle biopsy's of both lumps and put him on several meds (pain and antibiotic) in the meantime while we wait. We may not hear anything until Monday.

That's the Reader's Digest version for now.
