Mancat Monday: Carmine Update



Carmine: Me is just hanging out, waiting for story time.  We is reading Insurgent right nows.  It is a very good book; me listens every night with Jewel, and sometimes even Milita joins us.

Me had to go to the v-e-t on Friday -- again. The v-e-t and the Mom talked about a lot of stuff that made no sense to mes, so me will let hers tell you about it.  All me knows is me is sick of being poked so often!

The Mom here:  Sorry, Carmine!  You know I only take you to the doctor because I love you so much - although I'm sure it doesn't feel that way to you.  You have to get your B12 injections so you can stay my healthy baby boy for a long, long, long time.

As Carmine said, we went to the vet on Friday for another check up and B12 injection.  Carmine is maintaining his weight at 9 pounds 6.5 ounces.  I was surprised he hadn't gained any with all that he's been eating with his appetite stimulant, but I'm happy he is maintaining at the least.

Now that he is stable, the vet wants to take him off the Prozyme to see if he starts losing weight.  If he starts losing weight again, we'll know for sure that he has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency and that he'll have to take the Prozyme for the rest of his life to stay healthy.

Have a great Monday!
