Hi guys, Kitty and I successfully managed to test his glucose three times over a 36 hr period. But the struggle is real. And we're both getting used to this. How do I start to get him comfortable with testing? I know we need to test before mealtime, but this guy is ravenous by meal time (should I increase food? We're doing 7oz 12 hr apart right now, he is underweight...) What are the first good baby-steps I should do? I can't get him to hold still! He's not too upset about me getting near his ears but as soon as I try to put the towel/cotton ball to the back of his ear he's all head shakes and ear twitches. Last night and this morning we've been completely unsuccessful with getting a test done. His ears won't bleed! The first 3 times, no problem, plenty of blood. But nothing now!? Right now I'm freehanding the lancelets, I didn't realize the meter didn't come with a pen. The lancelets are 26 gauge.
