I am still not great at testing. My spreadsheet is full of holes. My poor cat has tolerated it well. I have to do it while he eats his regular food as he is not interested in no carb snacks and they don't last long enough. Many times he has already eaten over half of his food by the time I do get a good sample. I wonder how quickly his number raise on the friskies pates. I swear I poke each ear at least 3 or more times and I still don't always get enough blood, but when I do, he has great numbers. Lately I've only had to give him a drop every couple of days. Today was the lowest he has ever been without insulin. 83!! He has one more vet trip scheduled this Thursday to remove his splint and make sure his sprain has healed enough. He always has to be sedated to be checked out and the stress might raise his numbers again, but we are so close! I know he hasn't been off of it long enough to consider it being official, but I feel like we can see the finish line. I hope I haven't jinxed his progress, but I just had to share my excitement.
