    I'm hoping and praying I made the right decision by giving her 1u tonight, I've never shot a green before. We're just starting TR and I'm SCARED lol. I do have M/HC food available if needed, just wasn't able to stall tonight because of scheduling issue tomorrow. Think she'll be alright? I'll be monitoring.

    Hi Elizabeth,
    Panic is probably coming off the bounce tonight after that 78 yesterday amps.
    I would get a +1 and a +2 to start with to see what's happening and give Panic a small snack of low carb with each of those snacks. You will need to monitor after that but if you get some early tests in you will be prepared for any drops instead of getting a nasty surprise at say +3.
    I will watch for your updates. Please keep the SS up to date and the subject line with the tests. Thanks:)
    Don't be scared. You are testing so are in control .

    I'm so glad you're here tonight Bron, thank you. My impulse is always to drop or skip the dose but it just makes her BG elevate later.
    I will be sure to keep both updated. :bighug:

    As long as you are testing and have HC and MC food and honey/karo you will be able to catch and manage any drops.
    If you are concerned if the BG is dropping, offer low carb food if she's over 50, and if you feel anxious you can retest in 1/2 hour instead of an hour. You will get to know how Panic responds to the carbs..

    The insulin is usually strongest in the first half of the cycle and sometimes we have to offer more food than normal to keep the numbers up. By monitoring you will be able to see when you need to do this. If you are unsure, always post and ask for help.

    That's really comforting to know, I teared up just a bit, just thinking if I play too risky with her dose it can hurt her. Thanks Bron. Playing "pancreas" is so daunting at times.

    Panic's a good sport during testing but she's starting to give me the stink eye. o_O

    Looks like she might be slowing down a bit. I would give 1 teaspoon l c and I think I’d test again in 1/2 hour just so we can catch any drop early.
    Often when they are coming off the bounce that cycle can be strong. That is probably why she is dropping since PMPS. So a good idea to monitor closely.
    You are both doing really well!

    I can believe it! Well at least I can be up all night with her if need be. Should probably start passing around the PJ's and snacks.

    She’s still safe.
    I think I’d give a small teaspoon of medium carb as we are still early in the cycle and a way to go before nadir.
    Do you have any medium carb?
    We don’t want to fill her up incase we need her to eat later in the cycle.

    How big of an eater is she? We don't want to fill her up if she really needs to eat later in the cycle.

    Or will she eat as long as there's food available?

    She'll eat till I stop giving her food honestly. I'll break open the MC.

    Fed 1 tsp MC (13%)

    No food, wait an hour?
    She noticed her autofeeder up on the table and got excited until she realized it was empty, now she's following me around expecting a handout. :rolleyes:

    Yes wait an hour. No food.
    She responds well to carbs. That’s good to know. Write that in your SS remarks column for later reference.
    Either that or she’s going to bounce again after that lovely run of healing greens.

    Ah yes, was going to write in when I gave MC too, thanks for the reminder.
    Hopefully she's coast and not bounce though. :nailbiting:

    Hopefully no bounce but she’s not used to green numbers yet so don’t be disappointed if she does bounce again.. She’s looking good.
    And having a good eater is such an advantage. Sheba was always a very motivated eater unless she was sick and it made a big difference knowing she would eat if the numbers were dropping.

    Well Panic's no stranger to the stars unfortunately so I won't be surprised if she does bounce. :rolleyes:
    Ah never thought about that but you're right! It's funny though because prior to FD she was the cat that never cleaned her plate. She'd eat maybe three bites then be done. Go figure!

    No food. Sorry Panic.
    Maybe one more test and if it’s still ok I think bed. I have no idea what time it is there..... or if you would rather go to bed now and maybe check on 2 hours. If you can wake with the alarm.

    Oh that is very late for you.
    It’s actually 2 hours since she’s eaten, right?
    I think you could go to bed now. Just leave some food out for her in the auto feeder or just give it to her as you go to bed. Low carb.

    Almost 2 hours since she ate, yes. I may be up another hour so I can get another test in as well.
    Thank you so much for staying with us, it really means a lot!

    Don’t stay up to test Panic She’ll be fine now as it’s 2 hours since she last ate and she’s rising. Grab sleep while you can.
    Very happy to help. It’s only late afternoon here so no problem
