    Hello Here is yesterday:
    https://felinediabetes.com/FDMB/thr...-418-2-5-358-pmps-446-2-5-448-3-5-421.261711/

    I'm just going to reiterate what I said last night @ +3.5 because that's all I've got:


    "Am I injecting water? When is a bounce not a bounce? Is it a full moon?

    Honestly, I'm just letting off steam, but holy wow..."

    One other thing that is contributing to my feeling gnarly. I learned of an Endocrinology seminar on "Hyperthyroidism, Hyperaldosterinism and Acromegaly: Need to Know Updates" and told Eddie's IM vet about it.

    https://www.vetpd.com/about/speakers/margie-scherk

    I would have signed up but one has to be a vet or a vet resident or tech so I told him because, well, for obvious reasons.

    He wrote back:
    "A seminar for U$115,- from ‘experts’ with unknown credentials?
    Not interested."


    So I answered, "Oh, ok, I thought because it was this person, Margie Scherk (Diplomate of the American Board of Vet Practitioners (Feline), it would be an informed seminar.
    https://www.vetpd.com/about/speakers/margie-scherk
    I wish I could attend. I’d love to hear what they have to say about acromegaly…."

    This morning I'm going to allow myself to feel defeated for about 5 minutes. Then we go on.

    I feel your pain I cannot get down out of the Reds- we are in the black usually once daily- It's been a week- I don't think I have any more patience to wait to increase!

    It's really hard sometimes, that is for sure. Eddie's issues go back a long way (see his spreadsheet) as he has acromegaly, which is instrumental in his DM. We were sailing along nicely there for awhile and then we hit the rough seas about a week or so ago.
    You'll find lots of support here. Don't despair. One of the best pieces of advice I've had is "put your Patience Pants on" and that usually brings me back to the present and the complexity of working with TR and DM.
    Someone more experienced than I will pick up your thread and give you something to hold onto, even if it's :bighug::cat:, which I sent to you now. Keep the faith. The spreadsheet, paitience and the advice will further shape the story with Victor, who is very handsome, btw.

    So, @+6 209: @Wendy&Neko

    Wendy, I got a +6 209 and then had to go to work. It suggests to me, though, 209 is nadir? Given our conversations here over the last few days (and tomorrow being Saturday), should I increase .5 to 9.0u? Is it time?

    Thank you.

    I would (in the morning, I never liked increasing at night...)

    Thank you, Melissa! I read you loud and clear about increasing at night. It's already complicated enough even with bounce-resolution when it comes at night. Wish us luck tomorrow.

    This is the first time since March 24TH that PMPS was in the mid-yellow zone! I'll take it. Maybe something other than my plan is going on with Eddie. That would be par for the course.

    See, lay down the threat, that's all it takes lol

    Technically if he sees green you would hold the dose...but if it's just high greens (like 95+) I think I'd increase anyway. Since he saw the 106 a few cycles back, high greens aren't much progress from that. From where I sit, need to stay on top of the increases - and I would still do 0.5U, because last time you did 0.25U with high greens and it wasn't enough. But see what Wendy thinks.

    LOL: lay down the threat!
    I have a feeling that Wendy will agree with the increase if only because of the 0.25u failure. At least it was instructive...

    So, here we are @ +3 176. Of course. Blue.

    But, still, as Melissa said, if it's a high green, still go for the dose increase Agree @Wendy&Neko ?

    Will test again.

    Hard to guess where he will go. Blues mean an increase.
