He's basically been chugging along relatively well, really. His blood glucose levels, sadly, have remained in the mostly low-ish diabetic range (200-300) most days despite being off the oral Prednisone now for almost a month now. He's usually around the low to mid 200s range most of the time and the insulin does bring his BG down to under 200 after his insulin, so...yeah. The good news is he's generally been taking his ear sticks and his insulin doses like a total champ, so we're really pleased about his good-naturedness about that.

He's not so thrilled about his other meds, though. He still fusses over the mask on his inhaler sometimes and there's usually some quibbling over the Lactulose, too. He also hates his once weekly dose of Fosamax for his hypercalcemia, too, but at least that's once weekly! Otherwise he's eating his diabetic Rx diet like a champ most days and a very happy and content kitteh when not going through his twice daily meds regimen, LOL.

He's due for blood work to check his kidney function this month and due for a serum calcium check next month. We're mightily curious about his kidney function, what with him not being on a renal treatment diet for several months now. Last we knew late summer he was still firmly in stage II, so we're hoping that's still the case. *Fingers crossed*
