    Alright, so happy green. After the 1u.

    I asked him "wanna go surfing, baby?" while grabbing his bowl for a tsp of LC, he meowed with much excitement.

    Maybe if you can, try to get a test earlier in the cycle like you did today the next few cycles?

    That's awesome what Jasper said when you asked him if he wanted to go surfing.

    Bounce? NDW?

    Probably more bouncing from that big drop into +79 . He seems to like to take big drops. Some earlier test in the cycle will help you know what he's up to so you can give a little it of LC ( a tsp or so) to slow him down to help with the bouncing. I would start grabbing a +1 or +2 test from now on so you can help soften the drop.

    A little surprising at pmps. I haven't shot or fed yet. Will probably feed normal if no reply soon

    Hi Aaron, I see your dilemma. I'm not experienced enough abut dosing to advise.
    If wait a bit more before you feed, maybe we can find someone to help
    @Chris & China (GA) ?

    Okay, you know the drill. I would test at +1 and have all your strips, HC gravy food & Karo at hand
    Maybe coffee for you ;)

    The HC would be if Jasper drops under 50.
    Hopefully Jasper will surf tonight. I see that @Bron and Sheba is on.
    I think it's good that you shot with Jasper's DKA history but I want to make sure you have the best advice for keeping him safe tonight

    Hi @Barbara & Uncle (GA)
    I have to go out I’m sorry to pick up granddaughter. Will be back in about 1/2 hour. I’m sure you are getting a +2

    Well, no one replied yet so my advice is to test again at +2 for sure.

    Hi I'm back @Barbara & Uncle (GA)
    I'm wondering if the SS is up to date. Just reading back through the thread and green numbers are mentioned for Wednesday but I can't see any green numbers???
    No answer yet for the +2?

    The spreadsheet is up to date. PMPS was 54, Aaron stalled for 25 minutes after that to try to get some advice and then gave 0.75u at that time and a LC meal.
    He said he checked at +1 and got 72 and fed a meal

    Yes. However I'm going to use the normal pmps time as my baseline. Even though the insulin was 15 minutes behind/after

    I'll hang around for the +4 because I'm curious. It's just about midnight here so I'll probably drop off after that unless I'm needed

    Are you going to wait and get a +5 .....can you set the alarm?
    If not, I would leave some food out for Jasper to eat in case he drops a bit later in the cycle

    That has to be a rise, correct? He had to have reached onset by now and he maintained/raised. I feel like I should be good for tonight, and perhaps I shouldn't have decreased dose

    Those numbers are all much the same really, but yes no dip. He is surfing along nicely.
    Looking at the SS his nadir varies. I don't think he has reached his nadir yet.
    If Jasper was my cat, I would get a +5. If you feel you can't stay up, then I would give him a teaspoon of higher carb food now and leave some low carb food out for him to graze on later.

    Sorry Aaron, I see what you're getting at.
    You have been giving a 1.u dose and tonight you did 0.75u
    I'm not sure if that "decrease" is even really in play tonight because of the depot.
    Since he hasn't technically earned a decrease, you'll probably want to go back to 1.u tomorrow

    He isn't a grazer by any means. If I put out food he will eat it then.

    How about his morning dose? Back to a full 1u or stay .75?

    I understand......Sheba was never a grazer either. She would eat everything in sight.
    If you need to go to bed now then give him a small meal now with a teaspoon of Higher carb mixed in with the low carb to keep him up over the nadir.
    With the dose for the am, I see you are doing TR and you haven't earned a reduction so I would go back to 1 unit, unless Jasper is very low again, in which case I would stall and post for assistance

    He's had a lovely surf then, hasn't he?
    I think it is safe to go to bed.. you have done very well tonight...you must be exhausted. I hope you can sleep now.
    I'd give him a small snack now before you go to bed of LC.:)
    ETA....I just re read your last post and see you have already fed him!

    Good morning. It looks like I missed all the excitement.

    Firstly, when you want to post on a new day, start a new condo, rather than taking an existing condo and editing the title. It was confusing at first when I remembered posting my comments on a different day.

    Secondly, you will want to shoot 1u for AMPS today. Jasper hasn't officially earned a reduction yet.

    @Bron and Sheba, there are some cells that are filled in, but they are very, very light pink with white text. They are all in the PM cycles. It's a known glitch with Google Sheets. We cannot fix them. :rolleyes:

    @Aaron and Jasper, I'll look for your new condo coming up soon for AMPS. :)
