Judy,

I agree with Tami. I really do not think people mean anything, but nonetheless it can be tiresome to hear. I also do think that people realize what an emotional ride this can be.

I have taken 1 year to heal... and you would not believe the amount of people that tell me I should not get another dog, because of how they tie you down, and you should have some freedom..etc, etc.

I have a wonderful neighbor/friend. She said to me.... WHY? Why should people say that.... she said I was a wonderful animal guardian.... and if you want another, you should get another.

People can be insensitive, but those are the ones that never walked in our shoes.

Barb

Know exactly how you feel, Judi. I try to remember the comments wouldn't have been made if they weren't trying to help, ... in their own way. Everyone who counts knew how long Otis was with me and how much I thought of him, so they avoided "giving advice".

It's a tough, tough situation when you have an aging pet who is very dear to you and you know their time to leave is getting close. One of the most stressful situations I've been through, and still has some impact on me.

thanks again everyone. I know you have all been there and it does help. We are joking about it now. She felt perky enough last night to give my husband grief for not getting to the door fast enough to let her in. yay

thanks Patty, It's good to see you.

We set a new low (literally) in pet care this morning. I haven't tested Jenny's sugar the last 2 days to give her lip a break and she had been pretty consistent.

This morning when I put her outside her back legs were too weak to hold her up. It was pathetic.

On my One Touch Ultra she was 24 thank goodness she is one tough little poodle. Had some syrup, had some breakfast, had NO insulin and she was barking and rambling around when I left.

At lunch she was 424. Roller coaster ride again.

my poor baby Jenny, the things she puts up with (and survives!). It is nothing short of a miracle. No more skipping testing.

wow judi

symptoms and the inner voice can get the job done but testing takes less concentration .

i tried to eliminate one of jesses 3 tests a day . did not work out to well . went back to the 3

its amazing the cure is so simple for low blood sugar . glad she back to diva status
