    12/20 -

    Yesterday's modified curve -

    AMPS - 278
    Insulin - 1.75 u
    +3 - 576
    +5 - 574
    +7.5 - 608 (she found half a dozen pieces of contraband kibble - hidden but not hidden well enough)
    PMPS - 418
    +2.5 - 383

    Today AMPS - 424

    I have ordered new insulin.

    Unfortunately I am leaving this morning to go visit my parents for 5 days. Rotten timing. A vet tech is coming in and will feed and give insulin twice daily.

    Bounce plus kibble makes for an unfortunate curve. Given the speed she was dropping by +3 the previous night, she probably got down to some numbers she isn’t used to.

    Have a good visit with your parents. Glad you could find a sitter to give insulin.

    Thank you, @Wendy&Neko. :bighug: I appreciate your insight.

    That was my thought also about the bounce and unfortunate curve.

    I left the dose unchanged for the cat sitter - was that right?

    Looks like Pretty Girl needs an increase, but I would wait until you are home and can monitor.
