Mister ... Part II

My little feline friend has conquered the dreaded diagnosis! It was a frustrating and expensive road but we got through it. haha

After two months of twice daily glipizide, specially formulated diabetic food and once daily Atopica: the diabetes has reversed itself. Hallelujah! I think the worst part of the whole scenario was taking him to the vet for glucose testing. It just broke my heart. Drawing blood from his lower leg was extremely painful for him and stressful for us both.

Now, he is on Atopica every other day for the rest of his life. It's not difficult to give him that pill. I wrap it in a tiny bit of American cheese and he gobbles it right down. That's how I give meds to Samson, too. You may not find many groceries in my house but you will always find American cheese. :-)

I live alone. To be honest, I am almost always alone. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I'd be where I am today. Never. I would not be able to get through the day if it weren't for my pets. Sounds a little coo-coo? I agree. But it's the unfortunate, painful truth. If you pray, please pray for me.

Romans 11:33 (NLT)

33 Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways.


  1. Hi Leslie Ann,
    Yay for the mister! I'm so glad his health problem is reversed - what a thing for you & him both to go through. And oh my what vet bills cost these days.
    I do pray, a lot, and I will keep you in my prayers. I hate being alone and do not like the thought of it at all. The Lord will surely send you grace for your situation. I'm so glad you mentioned that or I wouldn't have had a clue.

    1. Thank you so much. I certainly appreciate it.

  2. Lesley Ann, I just wanted to correct my spelling of your name. (Um, I'm obviously the coo coo here.) Actually, I think its a good thing to have pets & talk to them. I talk to our dogs all the time. Have a great day, my friend!

    1. ha! I don't pay any attention to that. I answer to whatever someone calls me. haha When I worked, many people called me Lisa or Lori ... for years!


I appreciate you stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit.
