    What time are you going to test again and I’ll check back in.

    I'm sorry I didn't see this. Just tested. She is 61, so same as an hour ago. She is eating more of the food now. I will be ok on my own. I will probably keep monitoring. What do you think is close monitoring needed? /thank you for everything tonight!

    Wow I expected her to be up with that 13%. I’m glad she’s eating more now.

    I wonder if you would feel ok resting for 1.5-2 hours? Would you be able to wake up and test her? I would hope that past +6 with two helpings of 13%, she would come up more.

    You read my mind and I was just setting my alarm for another 1.5 hours.
    I got her to eat an additional 3 more tsps now of the 13%. I was also shocked. I can’t imagine how much her body wants this reduction or where she would be if I was not doing the 13%. I wouldn’t be able to sleep anyway so will keep testing her as needed. I will be ok, I know what I need to do with your instructions.

    If her numbers do not rise when I check in 1.5 hours do you think I should give the HC? I am nervous of a skyrocket this late in the game, but also nervous of a drop or dip before the AM shot too.

    Makes me wonder if I should keep going with the 13% tomorrows cycle too from the get go.

    HC would let you sleep. It might raise the BG due to loss of duration. It’s difficult to know when she hadn’t done this before.


    I wouldn’t worry about that tonight. Do what you need to to get some rest and feel she us safe. Things might look different tomorrow.

    I hope you get some sleep. I’ll check back in a few just in case you need anything else and then we can both get some sleep.

    Hi Marje thanks for this helpful information. I think I will take it one test at a time. I will maybe do HC maybe not at her next test - if I can stick with the 13% I will. I don’t want to introduce carbs unnecessarily. She did get the HC one time before - long ago when she first dropped green - and it did skyrocket her, even just a tsp

    goodnight and thanks for your help! Sweet dreams!
