During the resent holiday time another monkey mom had to say good-bye to her precious monkey due to complication of diabetes. I wish that it was not necessary for me to write the first blog of 2014 on such a challenging subject but I must.
(Please send continued prayers out to this very heart-broken monkey mom and her friends and family members that are in such pain.)
(QUESTION TIME) Do you know that for most of my 25 years with having monkeys that most of the time I have been touched with either having a diabetic monkey of my own or being around someone else who had a diabetics monkey?
****Diabetes in a monkey is a very hard illness to deal with and you must live everyday with the reality that your little special monkey could be taken away from you because of the many complications with managing this illness in them.
(This is hard to live with....)
(Please send out a prayer to the many of us who have loved and lost beloved monkeys to this disease which is very hard to handle in humans and even harder to handle in monkeys.)
****If you are going to become a monkey caregiver, it is very important to learn everything that you can about monkeys with diabetes.
I speak about programming over and over again in “The Living With Monkeys “ books. Understanding about a proper diet for your possible monkey is one of the most important things that needs to be discussed as you are making your early programming plans.
****(VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE) The way you feed your monkey can be a life or death thing.
(Story Time) Dr. Norma Kenyon, who is very important at The University of Miami's Diabetic Research Center was sent to me from God in 2000, when my star performing monkey developed diabetes. When I gave the information to her over the phone about my very sick monkey, she understood instantly how I felt as a newly diagnosed monkey mom of a diabetic monkey. She had also walked in similar shoes ten years previously when her little infant daughter had been diagnosed with Type I diabetes at just a few weeks old.
She was so helpful and began quickly to inform me that she knew hundreds and hundreds of things about monkeys having diabetes. Her job at that time was to help the vets at the university balance and give the proper type and amount of insulin to the research monkeys that were at the facility. She was not only a mother of a diabetic child but she was also an immunologist who was actually getting hands on experience with monkeys who had diabetes everyday of her life.
Dr. Kenyon instantly gave me hope. These are a few of the important things that she first said to me:
- “If you will listen to me and do as I tell you to do, we will have your monkey leveled and on the proper dosage of insulin within 2 weeks.”
- “Maggie's life is going to change in the way that you have been feeding and caring for her but you will see she is going to feel so much better.”
4. “Stop it.! Stop blaming yourself about this life change that your
monkey must go through. She is going to be so much better very
5. “I know that this information will not make you feel better
but you must know that the black-caps are one species of
monkeys that are used here at the research center because they
are one of the easiest types to give diabetes to.”
During the last 14 years so much new information has been gathered on diabetes in monkeys. There has also been so much more research that has been done and there are even new types of insulin that are available to care for my precious little Maggie Mae. She is now 21 years old.
(I would like for you to send prayers of gratitude to the monkeys who have sacrificed their lives in the research facilities to help develop the valuable insulin that has kept my Maggie Mae and millions of people healthy for all of these years.)
****Programming a baby monkey to be eager for their food and not for your foods is another one of the good programming things that you will wish to put into practice if you choose to have a monkey live with you.
