Good news, got him implanted with Suprelorin last week and in for a blood check today, and he’s holding steady at 72, five and a half hours after meds and food. He did sport a rash on his back when he first came back from being implanted for about three days, I think it might have been a reaction to an antiseptic they put on his skin or something. He also smelled like flowers so it could’ve been somebody’s fragrance that got on him.
the deselorin is infused into the implant, so it's not like a capsule. As far as I know, the body of the implant itself doesn't dissolve, so over time as new implants are placed, you will be able to feel more than one in there.

Blood sugar of 64 today, five hours after meds and two hours after eating a katydid (I found a big juicy one on a walk and brought it home for him). Also he’s scared of going downstairs again! This just happened two days ago.
There has been some hair regrowth on his neck, but his body continues to shed and shed. We like to slap his bald belly sides. Gently, of course!

Blood glucose of 67 today, hour and a half after eating and eight and a half hours after meds. He is also no longer afraid of the stairs. Still balding on the rear, but his neck is furrier. Getting a little thin lately so I’m increasing what he eats.

Well, the blood sugar dipped. He was at 53 today, four and a half hours after meds and eating. Upping the prednisolone to 0.3 mL’s. Also had a general checkup today, and the vet said he felt lumps on his neck indicating lymphoma. Got a general blood panel done to see if it’s affecting his body, elected not to get an aspirate done. If it is lymphoma, the only treatments are the pred he’s already on and chemotherapy, which I’m not going to go forward with. Bloodwork should be ready by Thursday they said.
