Good Hubbard News!

Hubbard is home! I picked him up from the vet this evening after work and he is home and doing good so far.

According to the emergency vet, his diabetes is apparently in remission and his pancreatitus is much better than it has been. That is why his blood sugar dropped like a rock; We gave him insulin when his body no longer needed it. Nobody is quite sure how or why it happens, only that it does happen occasionally.

So, he is off the insulin for now, and we are supposed to reduce his medication for the pancreatitus (which makes him happy, as it tastes terrible!). We also have an appointment with our family vet tomorrow to get his glucose tested again and make sure he is still doing ok. But for now, everything is right with the world once more!

My deepest thanks to everyone who wrote in and wished us well! I am overwhelmed how everyone responds in these kinds of situations. It is humbling for me to associate with such thoughtful and caring people.

I'll update everyone tomorrow after our trip to the vet on how our boy is doing.

I apologize for the poor cell phone pic, but I wanted to get this up quick.


  1. Yay!!! That is such good news about Hubbard! I had no idea that diabetes could go into remission. That is great that he can get off the insulin and lower the other medication too! We are so glad he is doing ok! We are still sending over purrs and prayers for him - just to be safe!!

  2. Wonderful news! Glad he is doing well and continued purrs...

  3. GLAD to hear it. Sending happy purrs from Aurora!

  4. Yay! We're glad to hear that Hubbard is doing better! We read about him on Space Paws and just wanted to send more purrs for him to feel better.

  6. Oh, I can't believe I didn't leave a "YAY" comment!!! (Well, I posted the news on the blog the minute I saw your message, so you know I was excited!) Hoping things are continuing to improve! Hugs to you, the ESM and kittehs!
