    Amazing to me what just a tiny bit of insulin will do. From those giving 1-2 drops to the 1/8U increase I did - what a difference.

    TGIF. Hope everyone has a great day. Prayers for those on the east coast. From experience - it is going to be a long next couple of weeks for those poor folks. We have our own little tropical wave coming ashore today and tomorrow also (not much coverage due to Florence) and we are expecting lots of rain and flooding.

    Keep safe. These storms seem to be more intense all the time now.

    I agree on the concept that a drop can mean a lot to a cat.

    I can't get over that hat! Gizmo is just too cool... :cool:

    I hope you have a good, safe weekend - no weather dramas! The storm looks just devastating - both on the mainland and the monster storm that has hit the Philippines. I hope everyone is able to stay safe... :bighug:

    :D

    He thinks so - lol. Paul (@Bronx's dad) suggested the hat a while back. It was a sticker on my camera phone app.

    Now I don't know what to do with his dose :banghead: Hubby gave him his Epogen shot right after I tested so we shall see. Will test @ +4.

    I gave him a tablespoon of MC mixed in with his +4.5 (and fed early). I am so tired. I haven't been able to go to bed early because hubby has been sick so I have been staying up for the +4.5PM test all week. I will test again at +5 and hopefully he has come up and if not I will give a bit more MC.

    ETA - +4=50

    Oh, I so hope you can get some sleep soon!

    What is Gizmo doing? From a pre-shot of 135 to 50 at +4? Good grief! Slow down, there, boy, slow down!

    Something to make you smile (although it's kind of a creepy pic in a way....). I hope your husband feels better soon! Take care, Lizzie!

    He was on 1.25U for over 2 months. A few times I had to add MC or HC to his snacks in the feeder just to be safe (while at work) but for the most part he did really well on it and after being home with him for a week his numbers dropped enough that I wasn't comfortable on that dose so reduced him to 1.0U (7 cycles) and the numbers started creeping up so I split the difference and went to 1.125U (this is the 5th cycle). He also gets an Epogen shot (for anenia) on Friday nights that tend to hike his numbers up Saturday and Sunday (no idea why). It is such a fun numbers game I play with him :)banghead: NOT).

    Lol. Thanks. Hubby is doing better. He has a summer cold - yuk. He works in the Texas heat every day and that alone is miserable and then add a head cold on top o_O. I didn't want it to get him completely down but it means I have only been getting about 5 hours of sleep per night. :oops:

    Here is me today...

    :bighug: thank you.

    I tried all week last week to get a picture of the hummers feeding for you but they are fast little suckers and we have one bully that chases the others off.

    Glad you are off tomorrow. It looks like he doesn't need those 2 drops. Ugh.

    And is this the 2nd time he got the epogen where he has dropped?

    Lizzie , I can’t believe with all else you have to do that you’d be trying to take photo of your hummies for me ❤️ We get frustrated at out bullies too...chest butting and chasing others off with such a long trip ahead of them . They are comical :) I’m really hoping you have a relaxed weekend , full of naps and your feet up . :bighug::bighug::bighug:
