Nice to hear Spirit is doing well. Our Eddie is also starting to slow down a bit and sleep a lot. Make sure those girls don't wear Spirit out!

Hello my friends......We've been absent for the last several months as we worked on our home in St. Augustine. We are now back up north enjoying the cool spring days. Spirit did very well over the winter in Florida. He is now 8-1/2 yrs old and almost 5 years as a sugar baby. He has slowed down quite a bit and our walks are slower and shorter so we've adjusted by increasing his insulin. He is now at 19 units day and night. I've come to the realization that his numbers are a bit higher as he gets older but he is still a happy goofy newfie and his blood work all still falls in the normal range. (we do a CBC once every 6 months.

I still try to keep him under 250 most of the day and he seems to be hovering in the 150 to 250 range. His last eye exam while in Florida showed no cataracts or glaucoma just a slight "blueing" which the eye specialist said is normal for a dog his age. At the start of this journey I would have NEVER guessed that he would still be with me almost 5 years diabetic and I know I've said it before, but it is all due to the support we received here when this all began. We still test about 5 times a day and he still comes running when he hears me pop the cap on the test strips....he truly LOVES his tests...or maybe the treat after the meter chimes.

I hope everyone is doing well and now that we are back home, I can check on the board more often. Talk to you soon.

Jim, Spirit & MJ
