Translated with Secret Alien Technology:
Sallie was back with our friends at North Shore Animal League this week for testing. Her blood sugar level remained high. We have adjusted her insulin. Hopefully that will keep it down.

High blood sugar in diabetes causes the lens of the eye to swell and not focus light, which may cause blurriness and other visual problems. This impairment is not always permanent. Once blood sugar levels are restored to a healthy balance, vision may be restored. In some cases, the high blood sugar results in a clouding or fogging of the normally clear lens of the eye, also known as cataracts. This blocks light and impairs vision. Persons with diabetes tend to develop these eye problems at an earlier age than most, and the condition progresses more rapidly than in people without diabetes. Sallie has the latter and would need surgery and lots of green papers to correct it.

We want to thank everyone who generously donated to the Auction For Sallie. Going on Now! There are some great items to bid on. We are overwhelmed with the love and support we've been given.
And don't forget to get your sleds ready for some winter fun with Sarge!
Sallie and I will see you there!
