    She’s surfing- she’s been 65 @ +4, 61@ +6 and 66 @ +8 (currently headed toward +9)

    Is that a safe number to surf around or should I give her a little carb. She ate @ +7 I believe) sorry I’ve been up every few hours and I’m typing this from my phone, I might be a little off on the accuracy, but these are the exact numbers.

    Those are safe numbers to surf in. Since you are past nadir, it's better to not feed unless you have to.

    I’ve been feeding her a tiny meal 3 hours before her next shot just so she doesn’t throw up from an empty tummy. (Shes done that before)
    It’s still her raw formula just a quarter of what I normally feed, because her nadir time still isn’t totally clear to me yet.

    That's fine. Feed like you normally do. I don't think she needs anything extra.

    Rosa --

    Typing in capital letters is the internet equivalent of shouting. I don't think that's your intent. You can always use the "?" icon in your subject line if you feel the need to draw attention to having a question. Usually, just the text you've used, although in lowercase, will alert everyone to your having a question.

    As long as you can monitor today, and you have plenty of supplies, you can safely shoot a 71.

    Just got a +4. 201

    looks like she’s bouncing again.. will she always bounce from high numbers or will her little body eventually know to stop?

    Good question, ask Mimi. Seriously, ECID. Some cats stop bouncing once they get used to long stretches of normal numbers, some sort of do and just bounce to lower numbers, some just can't give up the trampoline. All you can do is try get her used to normal numbers and see what happens.

    Hi Rosa, sorry I wasn't on this AM and glad that Carla answered your question about feeding after nadir.

    About bouncing, oh, it is so frustrating for the beans who's kitties are bouncers. Wendy gave you a good explanation of how it could play out. A lot of kitties, when they get used to staying in greens for longer stretches will start to bounce less. Some kitties bounce all the way into remission. Look at @Tara & Ivana (GA) , SS,
