    I have been giving Yum R morning (PMPS+11, on the right edge of the spread sheet) and evening (PMPS, in the middle of the spread sheet).
    I skipped it this morning, because she was at 141.
    Could that be why she bounced?
    One theory would be that 15L is not to enough to put her in blues or maybe even yellows on its own. When I skipped giving her any R this morning, her BG skyrocketed.
    Or is it just a bounce?

    Should I have given her .25R this morning?
    Should I have given her R in the middle of the day to slow her climb?
    I didn't get my hopes up re the blues, but I sure hate seeing reds and a potential black again.

    I plan to take her to 16L or 16.5L in the morning.

    Nice surprise this morning. Last night was the 6th cycle on 15u and looks to me like the depot filled and you seen what this dose could do. With R in the picture it's a little more tricky for me to say for sure. I wouldn't have given R this morning either with that AMPS and using the AT meter. However once she hit pink I may have given some to help lessen the rise. She's certainly not use to blues so I'd put money on a bounce happening today.

    Too much of a drop from R can cause these bounces but I am sure you are happy to see some blues, it's been awhile...
