    Good morning all :bighug: If it’s Wednesday then it’s Garbage Day so Elmo is right there with his nose pressed against the screen. Funny cat .:) Ate well overnight and ready to see where the day takes us. Sending prayers and hugs to any in need or wanting them ❤️ May your Wednesday’s be extra blessed:)

    Love how Elmo likes to watch the garbage pick up. I hope Elmo slides down slowly for you today.

    Another exciting garbage day for Elmo! I wonder if the garbage crew know they're being scrutinized by a cute little kitty :joyful:
    Have a happy day Beth! :bighug:

    Good morning Beth. You said it last night..that it's unseasonably cold here in Eastern Washington. We got heavy wet snow last night, on still fully leafed out trees, which of course results in limbs breaking, coming down over power lines and cars. There are power outages in different areas. Particularly in the whole south hill area of Spokane so some schools have no power, and they don't want kids walking in areas with downed power lines, ergo the whole school district gets a day off.

    Hope Elmo enjoys spying on the garbage truck people, and that you all have a good day.

    Come on down to the beach Elmo - lots of room on LTs beach blanket. Now, Elmo, there's no reason to go at break neck speed, just a slow gingerly pace will do. LT is serving tasty hor d' oeuvres near the tiki hut.

    Postpone the cleaning and have a spa day in the bath, followed by a nap. Then you will be refreshed and have something to clean if need be.

    I know that LC and MC are peanuts as far as Elmo is concerned, but you don't want to give too much so that the PMPS is not food induced. Maybe just a smidgen more of LC? I'm not sure how much he ate at +10.
    Off to forage in the fridge.

    Elmo may have plans for tonight. So gracious of him to let you know his plans with the +10 testing.

    Ok. We have two souls to consider and I vote give him 0.25u (I know yet another reduced shot) but he's obviously not going to make this easy and quite honestly I know of no way to turn his timetable around. His BG will do what it will do. You are providing support and following his dance moves but he is leading and all you can do is follow.
    You can stall dinner and retest in 30 minutes to see if he's rising on his own but I doubt it will make much difference.

    Just eyeball and shoot. Consistency is more important than accuracy so as long as it's roughly half way between the 0.5u and zero line you'll be fine. You can get calipers to make it easier to do those tiny doses but otherwise it's just do the best you can.

    Going down the dosing scale is taking longer than going up. Maybe see where 0.25u takes him over a short period of time, then go from there? Not nnowledgable - just a thot.

    Interesting suggestion. I really think he's taking the cake for PJ parties and no one can stay up night after night like this over the long haul. I really hope he is on a mission and just making the road a bit bumpier than usual.

    IF and that's a very big IF, Elmo follows any pattern (higher at +1 than PMPS), he might just behave tonight but that still suggests he wasn't on any rush upward at PMPS and he sure doesn't get much of a food bump. :cat:
