    Yesterday butters' numbers began bobbling up at the start of the PM cycle. I planned to get up for a test later in the PM cycle but I didn't, so who knows what happened.

    This morning is cycle 8 of 3u. I look at her spreadsheet and I am not sure what to make of the higher numbers today and last night:confused:. She seems in good spirits.

    Have a good day, all.

    good, good, good, good hydration.

    all i can say on the sell side is that this morning i didnt feel freezing cold and like i should have a lumberjack breakfast.
    so either i'm adjusting to less sleep, or this newish practice is helping me w recovery.

    Hopefully Butters clears the bounce and comes back down nice and slow :)

    Nice on the purrs this morning. It looks like Butters is bouncing. I hope he keeps sliding down and surfs safely today.

    She's asking for a pokie break and giving you an excuse to take a much-need nap.:p I'm sure she'll clear this bounce soon.

    She changed her mind real quick.
    This is a new stunt, going high before the low, that she had yet to pull in my recollection. Shenanigans:rolleyes:. Jaw has been reattached and several words stronger than oy vey uttered:p. Feeling much better now.
    :eek::eek:Yeah, I heard this creepy song in my head. I will have to give her the playing "P". She played dirty though. Keep it clean, Butters.

    Yes she is still eating well. She ate up the HC and scratched me for rubbing syrup on her gums. But eating is fine.

    She is just grooming herself, which is what she was doing when I got the 25. Acting normal.
    I gave her a lot...a couple tsps of HC plus a tsp of syrup I'd say.

    Ah okay. I wasn't sure if you meant to let her graze. She can't graze. She hoovers up whatever goes in front of her. Either that, or she refuses to eat. There is no in between.

    I didn't know about this. Does this relate to the "High before the Low" that Wendy mentioned?
    A high AMPS was a sign that she was going to drop later, and/or sign of a very full depot? Why does that happen?

    When some cat break a bounce, they go high at the very end of the bounce, then slam down hard. Neko did it too, but not all the times of course. If I saw an out of character high, it meant do not increase, put on the kettle. I didn't see a correlation between unusual highs and overfull depot. The 20's signalled the overfull depot.:eek:

    As for sleep, you can always BCS in the AM. Of course, this is for you, not for Butters. She can and will sleep anyways.:cat:

    You must be exhausted!!
    I hope you can get some good sleep, even if it's brief.

    With Butters showing no signs of hypo when low, Grem has always been exactly the same, though semi-recently I noticed there is ONE subtle sign and that's hunger. He's much hungrier than normal when his BG is low. Of course, sometimes he's that hungry and not having a hypo, but I'm learning to see the signs. They're so subtle!! But it's something.
