That damned NSPy (not that this is his fault, but just me expressing frust). Another $80 spent on him tonight. His diabetes may be in remission (which would be amazing and cheering even though we just spent ~$90 for a new bottle of insulin less than a week ago), but for now, we're lowering his insulin dosage again and I get to take him back for weekly blood sugar tests again - for about 4 weeks. (Think $30 a pop.) Also, he has some kind of mites and that's why he's overgrooming his paws. Because of the FIV, he's likely not to be able to get rid of this. Because of the diabetes, he's not able to take the most commonly prescribed treatment for this. This also involves weekly visits to the vet (for treatment) for 4 weeks. (Charges unknown for the meds and the application of 'em.) Anyway, that's tonight's cat news. The vet's office will call me when they find a medicine that he can take and I'll get the 4 appointments scheduled. [Edited to add: If it wasn't for my roommate, I wouldn't have been able to afford NSPy's medical stuff a while ago.] Also, I'm really behind in email. Almost embarrassingly so. So, if I owe you email, please be patient. I will reply. Just life is in the way these days.
