    Yesterday's Condo

    We had some action last night and with food was able to steer him away from 50 so we didn't have to do a dose reduction. Of course he bounced, so hopefully he won't stay bouncing for long. At least with all the poking last night, he isn't going to have a lot during his AM cycle since we are obviously still bouncing. Next test will be at +6.

    Nice work Zeke. He may bounce....if they bounce I always appreciated it being during the PM cycle. Nice and easy now buddy.

    Since he is definitely starting lower tonight it looks like, I am not trusting having just the 2 cans I have for getting us through so heading to the store now to restock on MC and HC. Have a can of each still and last night he didn't go through a can of each but who knows how tonight will be.

    PMPS is 109

    Definitely getting some action tonight again. I have given him a touch of approximately 17% (a mix of 15% and 20% left from last night) with his meal since he is starting out so low. Will be testing at +1 to make sure we aren't dropping too fast. Will go by his +1 to see if need to feed him any other MC or HC at that time.

    You'll want to do a +1 &+2 especially with that amount of carbs and likely a +3. He was rising into pmps so I would've gone with just the regular LC and gone from there. HC can take a few hours to wear off. No harm done, just my 2 cents. Surf Zeke.

    It wasn't much of the HC, maybe a 1/2 T at the most. The rest of his meal was his normal LC. Got another 30 for his +1. I was thinking the lower +10 was probably that little dip that some of them do before the PS, so not necessarily meaning that he was on a rise.

    He has went up, so no additional food going to be given at this time. Testing again at +2.

    Yep should have held off the HC at dinner that I added in. Will test at +3 and see if he is going to drop back down some since that will be 3 hours after the HC was given.

    Depending on when you go to sleep you can probably skip the +3 and grab one more before bed test. It's your call either way.

    I just put some brownies in the oven for us, so will do the +3 and see from there what else we need. On a night we aren't haven't to watch him closely for the low numbers, I'm in bed right after his +2 lol. As we get better on steering him when he goes lower and my daughter gets more confidence in doing it alone, I will be able to go back to my normal bedtime even when he has to be monitored close lol.

    lol

    His +3 is 194 so the HC is wearing off. Will check and see where he is at +4 and I will probably go to bed then and let my daughter do a +6.

    Btw, the brownies were great, swirled in some peanut butter to make them even better! I made plenty of course! *passes the brownies around to share* Us beans must also have our treats when we are on duty. :smuggrin:

    I think he is trying to make a checkered pattern tonight lol. He seems to be staying in decent numbers and not dropping so I am heading to bed. Nite everyone!

    Looks like he has a late nadir, the nadir is the lowest number in the cycle, and you can see it at any time.

    George typically nadired around +5+6, but he nadired as early as +1 and as late as +12 ;)


    The pmps looked like he was rising, so LC would have been ok, looks like he's set off on another bounce from hitting that green.

    I think I'll be sneaking in to steal some brownies too while you catch some zzz's
