Dear Sue,

By now you will have gotten to the vet on an emergency basis. I hope
that worked out alright.

If surgery is not an option (Do not recall details about Sugar.),
have you considered having blood run both for glucose levels and for
insulin levels to get a feel whether Proglycem may be a useful
medication for her?
