Our 1 Year Sugarversary!!!

We survived 2018! In true Bennie fashion we couldn’t end our last few hours of our worst year without something, so she threw in a fasting hypoglycemia. When you think you can’t survive this, we’ve conquered a year that brought us diabetes, chronic pancreatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, a heart murmur and dry eye. I have a newfound respect for single parents of special needs children and pets. Somewhere along the way I lost myself. 2019 is the year Bennie thrives and I get myself back! And hopefully I have time to finish this blog with topics to help others as I originally intended. Cheers to 2019!!!

Happy New Year!!

I'm a wiener dog obsessed mom of Beignet (long haired dark red brindle) and Andouille Sausage (short hair red brindle) as well as Boudin the cat. When I'm not spending my time caring for my dachshund divas and crazy cat, I'm also a general pediatrician. My background is therefore in the care of little humans and not animals. I am not a veterinarian so am therefore not an expert on animal medical care. This blog is intended to chronicle Beignet's battle mainly with diabetes, but also chronic pancreatitis and suspected jejunal inflammatory bowel disease. We hope to help others, but you should always speak with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet's care. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

  1. I’m in my 4th month and it’s been a rocky road. I’ve pretty much have lost touch with my family that lives a couple states away and I see my friends very little. They all understand thank goodness. My husband just went on night shift about a mom ago and I’ve been doing everything on my own…it’s been rough.
    I too have a picky eater and never know from one day to the next if she will eat.
    Granted she was never a picky eater before but she grazed her food all day.
    I’ve truly enjoyed your blog and it’s nice to know that someone understands how I feel.
    I have a Yorkie named Shelby she will be 11 years old in September and was diagnosed in early November 2018. She was at 15 pounds before diagnoses and she is holding a 11 + pounds for the last 3months.

    1. Shelby is lucky to have you! Our first year was a blur. And no one quite understands. And when you are handling things solo it’s a whole other level! I’m not the greatest blogger as I had planned to be but definitely keep up with my posts on the FreeStyle Libre. Feel like it’s been a total game changer for us the last month. Anything to make life easier…
