    Oh Silver does that to me all the time. Soooo annoying and frustrsting isn't it. I got up in the middle of the night and got a very low blue. I'm waiting for the bounce at AMPS!

    Nadine

    Tibbs numbers are slowly coming down Nadine. This is great. I hope that the bounce clears quickly. Have you gome back to the usual 1.25 instead of skinnying it? Just thinking about the depot.

    Sarah - yes he is at 1.25 - i only did the skinny because i had to go to work and couldn't monitor him but he is at full 1.25 now. Thanks.

    Juliet - yes it is very frustrating but at least he's finally getting some better numbers. dancing_cat

    How's Tibbs doing today? Has he put his trampoline away? I think he gave it to Silver actually ;-)

    tibbs had a 73 pre shot today at amps. i shot about half is regular dose (.75) and i'll test again in about 1.5 hours. hope i did the right thing. i knew he must have been going lower these last 2 days. i have lots of food out and i will test him again . also gave him a teaspoon of higher carb wet food

    So far he's looking good on that dose, although you might have over reacted slightly with the higher carb food and might have given him a little too much of a reduction for a BCS. But hey, this is how we figure them out. :D

    I would much rather see you let him run higher for a day or two from too much of a reduction than to drop too low on you.

    Well this is where what I would have done and what you should have done might differ because of our real life situations. I would have done one or the other, either fed up with higher carbed food or cut the dose in half, which now that I got his SS to finally load you didn't really do, you only dropped him .5 I had forgotten that he was already on 1.25. Now I again since I'm home all the time to monitor I probably would have only dropped him to 1u since that would have been the reduction that he earned by going below 90. Now if I had to leave to go work an 8 hour day or longer I would have done exactly what you did and err if it is an err on the side of caution.

    Your newbie panic was mild compared to my first one...lol Poor Musette was on a carb high for weeks after my first green preshot panic, I dumped an entire dish of Purina Cat Chow in front of her after giving her about 2 tablespoons full of honey..lol

    He did well...just came hope and saw that he dipped his toe in the water with 100.8 at PMPS. Now at 84.6 at +1....so Tibbs and Silver fed up playing on the trampoline, now they want to play in the grass...guess these two are becoming good buddies.
