    You can try it and see as long as you are prepared to monitor and steer if the need should arise. He'll probably be fine but you never know.

    @MrWorfMen's Mom yes I can monitor him so I'll go with the 0.5 FAT
    I wish last night that I didn't feed him when he dropped to 88 @+3 and then see what he did in another 30 minutes or an hour, only because on 9-29-19 you said since he was so regulated and doesn't drop that much I could probably let him drop to 80 since he is stable, but he just kept bugging me to eat,do you think that's still the case

    Yes I think you can let him drop to 80 BUT in the middle of the night, I wouldn't want to be staying up to monitor or worse potentially be playing with fire. We all know our cats are prone to changing the game at their whim so in your shoes last night, I would have done exactly the same thing.

    @MrWorfMen's Mom OK Linda I never thought of that about the night time, you're right, I wouldn't want to chance it in the middle of the night, I was just hoping for him to stay in the green a little longer, but I'm pleased with the results from last night, can't wait to see what he does today and the 9-29-19 numbers I was talking about it was in the day cycle oh forgot to tell you remember I told you I have to put Perry's dish on the kitchen table for him to eat, Tyler's neuropathy has gotten so much better but he never jumped on to the kitchen chair then on to the table to eat Perry's food. He can jump on to the couch and once in a blue moon on the kitchen chair.Well I hear some one eating and assumed it was Perry, so I go into the kitchen and there is the sneak Tyler eating Perry's food, this was this morning after I tested and fed him his FF, I could see he didn't eat much at all, so now so much for leaving Perry's food on the kitchen table @MrWorfMen's Mom

    Well that might just explain some of the higher numbers you see every once in a while. Maybe he's been making his way up for longer than you think. Glad to hear the neuropathy is improving even if it brings with it another little problem. :rolleyes:

    @MrWorfMen's Mom this is the first time it happened I'm pretty sure, My apartment is very small, the kitchen is about 5 feet away from the living room. I can see the kitchen table right from the living room. He is in my sight about 99% of the time. Oh well I now put Perry's bowl on top of the refrigerator and when he wants to eat I stay there and wait till he's done eating. Poor Perry lol Have a good night tonight @MrWorfMen's Mom

    Hey Diane and Cutie Pie Tyler :bighug: Hope you have a marvelous Monday, Diane ❤️ Getting ready to learn how to use calipers with Elmo doses....he likes to bounce and needs smaller increases to hopefully minimize the bounce . Haven’t been on Board much as We continue to get things back where they belong since The Great Water Leak of 2019 :woot: Sending prayers to you and yours ❤️

    @MrWorfMen's Mom hey Linda how are you
    The reason why Tyler's PMPS was this high was because I left Perry's dry K/D food on the floor and forgot to pick it up. I had an aggravating day today. Lol Did you ever just want to jump off a bridge

    STAY AWAY FROM BRIDGES! I know the feeling but this too shall pass. It's kind of my mantra these days! What happened other than Perry's food?

    BTW, if I kept count of the number of times Menace gets into her brother's food, suffice to say, I ran out of fingers and toes a long long time ago! Cut yourself some slack! :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    First of all Ashley isn't doing well at all, the rsd has spread to other areas. Then her TV went, I do have one in the living room but she watches hers in her room.
    My sister had a spare TV went and go it it
    Took the old one off the stand, not that heavy, only a 19 inch, the old tube typoe, not a flat screen. Now I pick the other one up, put it on the stand, program it, go to put her DVD player on and no picture, and I did it correctly. The TV itself worked, but Ashley said the volume bothered her ears, certain TV's bother her .
    So now I put the old one back, the DVD player works on the old one, but no picture for regular TV, its been getting worse the past month so finally went.
    My back is killing me. So now she can only watch DVD's on it and vhs tapes, yes we still have them lol. She tapes a lot of shows, she would tape some on her TV and some in the living room , sometimes some shows are on the same time so we use both TV's to tape on
    I am going to buy another one for her room this weekend and if the sound bothers
    her ears , if the DVD doesn't work on the one I buy its going back and that will be the end of it, I know its not her fault but sometimes I just want to scream.
    Certain TV's have certain sounds or pitches , you know what I mean so some bother her. She's in a lot of pain because it has spread to the whole right arm, hand and shoulder, that she can't even go on her tablet, hold a book and she loves to read.
    Just laying down and have the back of her shoulder touching the bed is excruciating
    for her. OK I chewed your ear off enough lol. I just keep things bottled in then explode
    Ready to give tubby his insulin now. I will talk to you later or tomorrow morning my friend, thanks for listening @MrWorfMen's Mom

    Oh Diane! Please deliver these gentle :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug: to Ashley. You on the other hand get Bear (((((hugs))))). It's so annoying when our electronics go on the fritz. Has Ashley tried Audio Books? They have a good selection and apparently if you don't like what you got, you can return it and get another. Just something to think about given the issue of holding a book with a painful arm. I can't even imagine what Ashley must be going thru and for you as her Mom to be witnessing it, is just beyond comprehension for anyone who hasn't had direct experience with the condition. My heart goes out to both of you! :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:

    @MrWorfMen's Mom thanks Linda I will tell Ashley and thanks for the bear hugs.
    She really can't listen to audio books because of the ears, she keeps the TV really low and half the time falls asleep. She really loves the smell of books, may sound weird lol. Thanks for the suggestion though. Everything is just a mess. She has absolutely no quality of life. Its like she's in prison. Thanks for listening to me Linda I truly appreciate it and your kindness

    I see you found the cat codes we know about. The 07 one surprised me when I heard about it here and then I got a vial with that code too. I think they do huge batch testing at a time so a particular code will be repeatedly turn up for awhile and then it changes.

    Too bad you can't get "book" scent potpourri! :(

    Didn't get an alert this morning and was just checking now to see if you had posted. I was hoping you weren't having another bad day. How is your back today?

    you had told someone about the different codes and searched it and found it. I thought you forgot about your nephew, I'm only kidding, I figured you didn't get the alert,my back is better @MrWorfMen's Mom

    @MrWorfMen's Mom lol as soon ad I saw his pre shot I said to myself Linda is going to think Tyler got into Perry's food again. I'm still up its 2:15 am
    Tested TylerTyler @+2 - 113 fed him 10 kibbles or so of Dr Elsey's dry just because
    he dropped 80 points Then tested him @3.75 - 94 Fed him 2 tablespoons of FF Pate
    So that's why I'm up, and where is Tyler sleeping on the kitchen counter.
    He stands by it and cries for me to pick him up and put him on it, then I have to put
    a chair by it so he doesn't have that far to jump because of his legs.
    I will test him again in another hour or so @+5 - 130 no food given @MrWorfMen's Mom

    Diane , I know how crazy NYC is ... crazier than that is the fact that Matt was raised in a small town of 3000 folks in SW Missouri ....has always been drawn to big cities ... went to a computer coding school up there and from there got a job there as well . We miss him but glad for him to follow his dreams ... our daughter lives in San Francisco so we are bi coastal parents for sure . Mainly see them holidays only ..but that's ok too... it's not got forever but just for now ( I Hope snd pray).... wish they'd move at least to Kansas City 2 hours north of here ... but I keep my momma lip zipped .....

    @MrWorfMen's Mom hey Linda don't know what's going on with him tonight with this number
    WEDNESDAY 11-6- 19. Even tested it twice
    PMPS - 214 should I go with 0.5 FAT or add just a smidge more to it
    Even his AMPS which was only 147 and shot 0.5 FAT the mid cycle test
    I did were higher than the pre shot he definitely didn't get into any of Perry's food @MrWorfMen's Mom

    Unless he did something interesting between +3 and +6 or +8 and +11 in the way of dropping which seems unlikely, that PMPS is just a mystery. Go with the fat 0.5u tonight. Don't want to promote a PJ party and this may just be a little blip of unknown origin.

    If you are going to be around to monitor, wanna try a skinny 0.75u? That is along as you have lots of strips and higher carb food should it become needed. Not that I think it will be needed but you just never know.

    Yes I'll be around to monitor, I'll try the 0.75 skinny I see I shot this before , so the plunger would just be a little more than where the 0.5 fat would be and a 0.75 fat would be just above the 1 unit mark @MrWorfMen's Mom

    The spacing you see on the syringe is relative. You know where you drew up the fat 0.5u to so the skinny 0.75u would be just a smidge below that roughly half way between the half unit and full unit marks. Consistency is more important than accuracy because without 1/4u markings we can only eyeball those in between doses.

    It's really up to you and your ability/willingness to test overnight should the need arise. I tended to be conservative on night cycles but then Menace was a little more prone to throwing me surprises every so often with some really low BGs.

    Its cold and had a quick covering of the white crap yesterday morning but it was all gone by midday thank goodness. The usual first day of snow with multiple fender benders etc. so I hibernating indoors. Got my snow tires on last week so at least I don't have that scramble to deal with. I think you guys are getting hit with this crap too.

    Sure. You can shoot an hour early tonight to get back on schedule provided Tyler's BG is high enough for the shot. No worries. It happens. Not moving quickly myself today.

    @MrWorfMen's Mom hey Linda I know you might now be a to give me an answer to my question What the heck is going on with Tyler's higher pre- shots lately
    Ok I started using a new vial the second week of September, so I know it's still good
    Before I started the new vial the other one was 4 months old so I decided to get a new one to see if it made any difference because he was starting to ger higher pre- shots also, it really made no difference but there were some lower pre-shots after that, but during the tests I did during the cycles he was dropping.

    Now all of a sudden we are seeing higher pre- shots granted he did get into Perry's food a few times, remember I told you.

    There has been some lower pre-shots though here and there as you can see on his SS
    He has been dropping during the cycles as you can see .
    Just gave him 1 tablespoon of FF LC Pate @+6.75 he was hungry

    I will see what tonight brings when I test his PMPS
    I am just praying that the vetsulin isn't working any longer
    I will be getting more test strips probably on Monday so I am going to try and test him every 2 hrs just for the hell of it
    Any thoughts @MrWorfMen's Mom

    Diane I wish I had a good answer to your question but I don't. BG is not static and while I agree that Tyler has had a few more higher pre-shots lately than he was having, I don't see anything alarming going on...they're not that much higher. If he is acting normally, eating well, peeing and pooping Ok, then he's just being a cat. Doing a curve one day isn't a bad idea. I doubt your Vetsulin has gone bad. I think you'd see a far more stark change in numbers if that were the case.

    I take it you mean 0.75 skinny. That's what's on the spreadsheet. Looks to me like Tyler dropped sharply last night very early in the cycle and I wonder if that AMPS is a bit of a bounce. When Tyler drops off by 60 points in 2 hours, might be a good idea to check him again an hour later to see where he's headed. Did you feed Tyler when you got that 135 last night?

    Hey Linda yes sorry was a typo, I fixed it. I didn't feed him exactly @+2 I just looked at my notes I did feed him @+3 then probably later on I gave him some Dr Elsey dry. I should have checked him you're right, will do in the future. Just put the feeding on the SS

    Looks like that 96 point drop earlier is causing some bouncing. Interesting. Might be from the slightly higher dose but he still didn't quite make it to green. I wonder if he is dropping to a lower BG later at night that we just aren't seeing. If you make a bathroom call later at night, maybe try to grab a test on occasion just to see if we can catch Tyler in the act so to speak. :D

    If like me you are going to be hibernating today (snow storm here! YUCK!) then I'd go with the skinny 0.75u and just keep an eye on him.

    Sounds like at least 4 and possibly 6 inches by tonight. I hope they are wrong. And then the temperature is supposed to stay low at least till Thursday. It's dropped another 2 degrees here in the past hour or so. Now 25F. Gotta dash out now to pick up ....guess what......cat food and maybe a bottle of wine before the roads get back and traffic is light. I may need the wine. Putting on the long underwear. I'm a cold wimp! :woot:

    That's not abnormal to have a lower AMPS than the PMPS. I still think that little monkey is sometimes sneaking in lower numbers at night when he knows he won't get caught!

    My porch, front walkway, bottom of the driveway and half the top of driveway got blown (didn't bother moving car to do rest) so what I have to clean up tomorrow should be reduced considerably. That white crap is coming down very little now but it's really disheartening when it gets white again right after you blow out a few feet. I've ordered a truck and will arrange to send it to you tomorrow @Beth 73 so you can top up yours since you said it was gonna melt. Ours isn't going anywhere soon...should make it there intact. PM me the address. :woot: Even the inside of the snow blower had frozen snow stuck in it by the time I got done.

    I'm zonked and gonna put my feet up AFTER I feed a hungry cat who is howling at me! The animals are definitely running this household!

    @MrWorfMen's Mom Linda you have the best sense of humor, I get such a kick out of you, yes give all the white crap to Beth lol. Sneaky Tyler you crack me up.
    Where I live if you park on the street after you done breaking your back shoveling it out, the damn town comes by to plow the streets and push all the snow again on the side of your car, so you have to start shoveling the crap again. Boy does it burn me up. There is a big drive way behind my apartment building and the owner has his guy come and snow blow everything, I park there. The thing is if its really a lot a snow, I mean a lot I park on the street and go outside and shovel my car multiple times so that when he comes I can jump in the car with Ashley and leave and go park some where, because of the noise. There is a hotel 2 minutes away from me that has a big parking garage so I go park there. The things we have to do, it's awful. That's why I pray for no snow or at least only about 2 or 3 inches. You must be pooped, put your feet up and have that glass of wine you were talking aboutabout. I Will Start a New Thread Tomorrow Morning Tyler's Journey #18 @MrWorfMen's Mom

    I have to keep a sense of humour about it because I can't change it. My big problem tomorrow will be much like yours. The snow plow will come by and plow all the snow from the road into the bottom of my driveway. My added problem is that I live on a corner so when they plow the side street and come around the corner, not only do I get the snow from my road but also from the side street. There have been times when I've had to call the city to clear the windrows they leave behind plugging the driveway entry. Piles 3 to 4 ft wide through and 1.5 to 2ft high, totally frozen across a double driveway. Impossible to blow out and too heavy to shovel. Problem is 2 years ago it took them over 36 hours to come clear it out and that was after I called several times complaining and telling them I had a brittle diabetic in the house who could need to go to the emergency for hypoglycemia at any time. Didn't tell them it was a cat I was referring to but it didn't speed them up anyway. If I'd admitted it was a cat, I might have been snowed in for the remainder of winter!:woot:

    I'll find you in the morning. Time for some sugar donuts! I earned them. :D
