Default Re: Lily - My English Setter - Diabetis and Hypothyroidism

Oh my...she's adorable. Makes you want to just curl up with her . Good luck with the dose increase. My Ali was pretty sensitive to insulin and we used to have to move in smaller increments than a full unit. But sounds like you know her ranges pretty well and how much she can handle. Give her a belly rub from us...her coat looks so soft

I really don't have knowledge about the cataract surgery and what leads up to it in regards to eye drops and bg levels, we've been lucky so far, but the others will chime in. I just wanted to wish you good luck and tell you again just how gorgeous I think Lily is!

Default Lily's Cataract Surgery

Lily had her cataract surgery yesterday and everything went well. I took her in at 8:30 and picked her up at 4:00. Once she got home, we started her new array of meds, she had a full meal at 8:00PM and then her full dose of insulin.

She was restless most of the evening and finally fell asleep around 1:00AM and woke up at 7:00AM. BG levels are good. Best of all ... She can see us already.

My fingers are crossed that she continues to improve.

We go back next Thursday for her follow up visit.

Here she is with her new hat ...



And, oh my, her new meds ...



The sun feels good ...

Oh she is so pretty even with her hat! All those meds - that brings back the memories - i had to set alarms to keep them all straight. It is a tough road but worth it. Glad she is doing well.

Great news for Lily & family! Thrilled that she can see again and she does carry her 'hat' very well - such a beautiful girl! Wishing you the best for a continued speedy recovery. That med picture says it all!

Amy, Judy, Holli,

Thanks for your thoughts! This is turning in to a full time job, but we do love our dogs. It's a good thing I retired last September.

Mike
