SISSY

GlucoStories

I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, MY LITTLE DOG WHO'S NAME IS SISSY, I GOT SISSY WHEN SHE WAS 6 WEEKS OLD. SHE IS ALMOST 8 NOW. THE ONLY PET I HAVE EVER OWNED FOR THE MAIN REASON I HAD A FULL TIME JOB AND WAITED UNTIL RETIREMENNT TO GET A PET.

HAVING SISSY IS THE BEST THING I EVER DID IN MY LIFE TIME, FOR THE FIRST SIX YEARS OF HER LIFE SHE WAS A HAPPY PET, WHEN SHE TURNED SIX I NOTICED ONE NIGHT SHE KEPT ME UP ALL NIGHT RUNNING TO URINATE, I WAS THINKING MAYBE SHE HAD A BLADDER INFECTION SO I TOOK HER THE FOLLOWING DAY TO THE VET, BAD NEWS, DIABETES.

THEN THE HARD TIME COME WHEN THEY TOLD ME I WOULD HAVE TO GIVE HER INJECTIONS, NO WAY I THOUGHT I COULD NEVER STICK HER WITH A NEEDLE, I USE TO PAY MY SISTER TO GIVE HER THE INJECTIONS, THEN ONE DAY I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, SHE IS MY PET AND WHY CAN'T I TAKE CARE OF WHAT SHE NEEDS.

IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO BE COMFORTABLE TO GIVE HER THE INJECTION BUT I HAVE BEN DOING IT NOW AND FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE ABOUT IT. SISSY GETS 2 INJECTIONS OF VETSULIN. SHE IS DOING WELL ENOUGH NOW THE LAST ITME I HAD HER TO THE VET THEY TOLD ME I DIDN'T HAVE TO BRING HER BACK FOR MONTHS. THAT WAS MAGIC WORDS I WAITED TO HEAR. I AM ON A FIXED INCOME AND THE VET CHARGES WAS TEARING ME DOWN, IN 1-1/2 YEAR I HAVE SPENT OVER $4,000 BUT I AM NOT COMPLAINING.

NOW MY BIG WORRY IS HER GOING BLIND FROM THE DIABETES. I AM PRAYING THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN AND IF IT DOES, I CAN COME UP WITH ENOUGH MONEY TO HAVE HER SURGERY, PRAY FOR SISSY PLEASE.
