    A thought here. Can you put the acro and IAA dx in your signature? And a **DO NOT COPY** line?

    Do not want any new or lurkers think this dosing is the norm. It's unique to Biscuit only.

    How comfortable are you shooting R by yourself today? We are about to hit the road and I will be driving most of the day so I won’t be able to check my iPhone like I did last week when DH was driving.

    I’d like to see you give him R as his numbers start up and see if you can hold them down. As soon as he hits 400, give him 0.5u. What do you think? I won’t be here to check on you but I doubt there would be any big drop. You can always post for help and tag Paula, Amanda, or Wendy. Even tho Paula hasn’t used R, she knows how to deal with high dose dropping numbers. Lou is IAA so Amanda also knows how to deal with high dose dropping numbers.

    Again, that’s not likely a scenario but I want you to have resources. I’ll be here another hour and then can’t check back in until late today, if I’m lucky.

    Hoping it doesn't hit 400 to need R.
    Any suggestions when I should next test him?
    I was grocery shopping and didn't check the phone

    Great day so far for Biscuits. I may not be able to check in tomorrow at all as graduation festivities start in the morning, the ceremony is at 2, then it’s party time.

    So....if you get up and he’s red, you can give 0.5u. If he’s pink, it seems like it’s working to catch him on the rise and give R. So if you check him at +2 and he’s rising, you might want to go ahead and give him 0.25u if he’s below 400 and 0.5u if he’s above. That’s only if he’s rising because we don’t want him to be dropping and we overlap nadirs. If he’s dropping at +2, wait for the rise and then shoot the appropriate dose of R like you did today.

    Sound good?
