Nova – Hypoglycemia scares the heck out of all of us!


That was sooooo scary last night. Everyone thought I was dying. I was shaking, I couldn’t stand up, I didn’t know who was who, I peed by accident on myself, my head was like a bobble head – all in the space of 2 hours from good to bad. I didn’t know anything was going on because I was apparently totally out of it. But we have the best vet in the world (Dr. Peter Hanna: http://parkanimalhospitalsimi.com/) who let mom call him at night and he diagnosed it perfectly.

My glucose levels hit rock bottom. Doc says it’s probably because I’m so young & small. A little Karo syrup every 2 hours last night rubbed on my gums – mom was great, right there for me, sleeping next to me, keeping me warm on the floor – and I feel fine this morning. Pretty amazing – even though everyone was so scared for a sec. My whole family was here for me. Vet visit this morning and my glucose levels are at 106 – doc says that’s good so I got to have some breakfast. And I now have my Nutri-Cal that I’ll take now every day for a bit instead of getting all sticky from the Karo syrup. So… I think all will be good to go!! I am so lucky and happy again.
