    I'm glad you shot the full dose. Bailey's BGs have started to flatten out beautifully! I hope she keeps up the good work for you today!

    Thanks Amanda!
    I'm actually terrified at each lower preshot number, but getting positive feedback and support gives me the courage to go ahead and shoot.

    I hear you! It definitely gets easier. I was a nervous wreck to start, but I do much better as long as I'm home to test. It was the days I had to go work that I would worry myself into knots at the dose. Back when we first started, I did all the testing and shooting, as Lou would NOT let Caleb test. So it was much more nervewracking because we were on the quicker-acting Vetsulin. When we switched to Basaglar, I told Caleb he had to learn to test because we needed more information while I was at work. So I'm lucky there. As long as one of us is home I've gotten much more confident shooting lower numbers. It also helps when you start understanding your kitty's reaction to insulin and the current dose. You're doing great Rosie! You both are actually! :bighug:

    Good job shooting the full dose! That's what I would have advised. :D

    I'm very lucky I can be home to test her. I am trying to rely more on her behavior so I don't have to poke her so much, though. I'm doing better, I think. I even have a few white spots in yesterdays SS:)

    Thanks @Mandy & Rex. The vote of confidence helps so much!

    Thanks! I am super excited for Bailey. Her poor little ears!

    I feel like a full .25 reduction may be too much, but I'm new at this so that's just an uneducated guess. Maybe I can try her at .25, see what happens.
    What do you think?

    Bailey is sure looking fine with all those greens! I'm jealous!! :) I wish Luci could go to the greens and hang there a while - she just doesn't seem to ever want to do more than surf for a while...then throws it all out the window for her old pinks and yellows...ugh :(

    Thanks! I'm excited for her! Well, for me too because maybe I'll get to sleep a full night soon. Maybe, Bailey? Please??

    Seems like Luci is the adventurous type, as I see she likes to surf with the sharks quite a bit. Then she makes you deal with the repercussions of her actions, the pinks and yellows.
    Bailey is the personification of the scaredy cat. One whiff of the sharks, and she's outta there.

    Bailey, please ask Luci to take a chill pill.:cool:
