    Yesterday's Condo

    Well, he dipped into the greens last night then immediately bounced. Why does he bounce pretty much every time he gets a good number? Makes this so frustrating.

    Because his body is not used to greens yet. It will come, in Zeke's own time.:bighug: There isn't a lot you can do to speed things up. Just make sure he's at a dose where he's seeing some greens.

    Come on Zeke, off the trampoline!

    I hope he gets off the trampoline soon and starts liking the greens more. One of these days he will finally surprise me and not bounce when he has a good low number lol. Testing again in a few minutes to see how this cycle will be going.

    PMPS 122!

    Probably gonna see some greens tonight with the way he is going. Was planning on taking a sleeping pill tonight but might skip that so in case my daughter needs my help. She knows what she is supposed to do if he gets too low, but she hasn't handled that solo yet so will want me up helping.

    Yep, got a green! +2 69. Going to test again at 2.5 since it does definitely keep dropping til at least +4. Gotta make sure we aren't going to need to steer him from getting to low.

    +3 49.

    A touch of syrup on his gum and fed a spoonful of HC. Testing again in 5 minutes.

    Testing in 5 minutes probably isn't real useful....even using simple sugars like Karo/honey/syrup, it can take longer than that to "kick in"

    With HC food, it will take at least 20-30 minutes before you'll see the full effect

    49 is low, but not terribly low so hopefully he'll come up easily

    Looks like back down to 2.5 he goes!!

    Once I know he is definitely coming up and staying up I will have to get to bed, but my daughter will be able to monitor. His next test will actually be his +4, the times are actually off somewhat but easier to label in quarters.

    That's better.....now no more HC food....maybe a little regular low carb

    We want him to be able to stay up above 50 for at least 2 hours from the last time he had to eat anything HC before totally relaxing

    Ok, was wondering on that. I knew the food would only last so long on him and didn't want to get laid down and my daughter panic because he starts dropping again.

    Generally, once they're back above 50, you'll want to test every 30 minutes for an hour and then test one more time an hour later (for a total of 2 hours)

    If they drop below 50 again during that time, the whole thing starts over

    Ok, so then on the right track then on the testing. His first above 50 was at +4. So next is +4.5 then will test again at +5 unless he starts dropping again. Still the same or going up at his +5, then next test at +6.

    His +4.5 was 70, so pretty much the same as his +4. Testing at +5. He has been grazing on his LC.

    @Chris & China his +5 is 71. Since it looks like he is staying steady, should I just do another in 30 minutes and then an hour, or you think it would be ok to go ahead and do the next one in an hour?

    I think you can wait an hour, especially if he's eating a little low carb food

    Hopefully he'll just continue to surf now

    It is another 45 minutes until it has been 2 hours since he last ate HC.

    Ok, he is eating his LC and actually looks like he is ready to settle down for a nap. He has been playing pretty good most the evening.

    What a good idea!!....I will have to get offline here in a minute but if you run into trouble, don't hesitate to put the 911 up to get someone to take a look

    I think he's going to have a nice cycle tonight though....Hopefully he'll stay away from the trampoline

    @Tricia Cinco(GA) & Harvey comes on this late some nights so hopefully she'll be able to check on you if she does

    I think @Wendy&Neko may still be around too

    I got to get to bed myself, but I will be up long enough to see what he tests at when my daughter does his +6, will have her do a +7 and +8 also just in case he decides to go wonky on us. Thanks for the help. Crossing fingers that we don't see that trampoline either.

    No sleep for me yet.

    +6 46. Have given him some HC and will test again in 30 since he is at his nadir he should be having that start working for him also to get him back up where he needs.

    +6.5 is 60 so heading back up. Was hoping just HC would be enough to start him back up since he was at nadir and looks like it is working. Daughter is going to do a +7 and wake me if he goes back down. Unfortunately I had already taken some Benadryl to help me sleep and i'm crashing fast.

    Sorry, I didn't get the tag, or I would have checked in sooner. That 83 looks good. Don't know if your daughter would see this or not, but if so, don't feed and test again an hour after last food. I'll be up another 30-60 minutes, so if she does see this and needs help, just holler!

    That is fine. Zeke did start heading back up and then found his trampoline unfortunately. :( Will see how this AM cycle goes. I have to leave shortly after his +4 but at least that will give me plenty of time to see what he is going to do.

    Got a new Condo started for today.
