Last week, we took Erin to the vet to finish up a set of tests. We learned that she still isn't getting enough insulin, and we will have to increase her dosage again... I'm so glad she is starting to feel better and act more like herself, but it's disheartening to hear about the increase.
We also had them test the pressure behind her eyes to try to determine the cause of the goop we are currently seeing in her left eye. We were told that her pressure is extremely high (Normal range: 12-21, Erin's left eye: 88, Erin's right eye: 44), and she most likely has glaucoma. Now in addition to the insulin, she will need eyedrops everyday. Poor kitty...
It's hard to imagine her not being a part of our family, and hopefully it doesn't come to that anytime soon. She just is really struggling to stay healthy right now, but we will continue to love and care for her.
Please send Erin all of your good thoughts!
