It means more shots but it also means more flexibility--like being able to eat some cake to celebrate his little sister's birthday last night. It's also better long-term for preventing or delaying complications, and hopefully will provide better control of his blood sugars on a day-to-day basis.


Crossing my fingers this works out better for him! Poor sweet thing!

Thank you Brenna. Can't say he likes more shots, but it's enabling him to eat a bit more. than he was allowed to on the other protocol. He's doing well overall. A couple times he's started crying out of the blue and I don't know for sure why. I ask him if he's sad about diabetes and he says yes, but if I asked if he was sad about global warming he might say the same thing. And he has no idea what global warming is, let alone why anyone would be sad about it.

I'm so proud of him for how well he is doing. At lunch time he brought me his meter, with a test strip in it, his lancing device, an alcohol swab, and a cotton ball. He knew he needed to check his blood sugar and get a shot before eating.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Yesterday I spent some hours meeting dog after dog after dog - one (fairly shady, actually) breeding farm a friend of mine had worked at for years, and two adoption stands. I met only one girl who made me go all gooey - and was surprised but SO pleased when she turned out to be utterly indifferent to the presence of cats. There are two more I would be interested in meeting; waiting for calls back and for my applications to be reviewed. But the one I met is the front runner right now.

Today, dinner with friends who are lovely and wonderful people (the ones who got a dog after they met my beautiful Siddy, actually - her "godson"!).


So wondering minds would like to know if you picked up a new friend??

Indeed I did! :)

In other best-thing news, the kitten and the pup are getting along.

Spent this weekend at the James River Writers annual writers conference, and got a 100-p. partial request from Alec Shane of Writers House. He also agreed to my request for an interview for my blog, so stay tuned!

Thanks so much y'all.

He's still a baby boy, is the Gossa-monster. This morning, though, I picked him up after he ate - his little belly was so round. *Grin* Warm, wonderful, chubby baby.

I think he's up to about 6 pounds now, and no less cute. Certainly I am STUPIDLY blessed in his personality - he's just nice. Super super nice, to everybody. He loves being held, and he'll go to people, too. I've had friendly cats before, but none so physically sweet with all my family and friends.

Penelope is probably about 40 pounds, but such a spaz I can NOT imagine weighing her. :)
