    My name is Michele.
    Kitty's name is Katie. Also have a civie named Anabelle.

    Katie was first dx May 2012. Lantus was used. Went OTJ August 2013. At that time only did urine testing, was unable to blood test. Was an pretty active member on this board at that time.
    August 2016 fell out of remission for no apparent reason. Back on Lantus.

    New at home testing this second time around, so if there aren't as many tests on my SS as others, please understand I am trying the best I can:)
    Katie is very fractious about the testing and it's very difficult for her, and I am having a hard time getting blood too. I can only test when my DH is home to help me by holding her, at this time, I cannot do it by myself.

    Katie is on a homemade raw diet and eats every 4 hours around the clock, but no food 2 hours prior to tests/shots. I still check urine daily also (for ketones too).

    Update 2019- well, now I am a pro at home testing, so if any newbies are reading this- believe me if I can do it , ANYONE can do it!
    Also, I let my SS go by the wayside and have just been putting her numbers in journal at home.
