I am in the Hosptial again

I wrote the other day about the new diagnosis and that the doctor had given me some new medication to take care of the osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

Well... I took just one day's dose... and had to be rushed to the E.R. very early this morning and losing consciousness. I developed almost fatal diabetic ketoacidosis. While I was sleeping the new medications made my blood sugar spike to 492 and Cookie and Needy are responsible for waking me up and I dialed 911 immediately.

My Cats saved my life.

I've been admitted for watch to make sure my kidney's don't shut down on me. I'll be here 2-4 days or so. It could have been much worse. I could have easily slipped into a diabetic coma last night.

Cookie and Needy are very literally lifesavers and I am in and out of confusion and clarity moments. This is a quick moment of clarity so I am posting and now I'm napping.

Ye gods! I hug you and your cats and smack the doctor! You take care, and you will be in all our good thoughts and prayers.

To be fair I had an ABNORMAL reaction to something usually quite harmless. All steroids will raise blood sugars just rarely to the extremes I jumped to while I was asleep. They're going to run tests to see if I also have any underlying non-diagnosed issues that could have contributed. It wasn't my PCP, this was a standard, fairly common 1 week course of anti-inflammatory prednisone cortisteroids.

All my kitties will get freaking TILAPIA freshly grilled when I get home. Temptations is not going to cut it for a thank you.

Needy is probably scared tonight, she always hates when I leave her for any length of time, she's very clingy and well... NEEDY (Hence her name) when I get back. SHe's been cuddling up with me every night since I got back from DC last week, and last night she was like plastered to me in bed and the next thing I knew both she and cookie we all over me and I felt the axis of the planet shift.

I'm beginning to feel better.
