    yesterday

    Off we go... let's see if he comes down from this bounce today. Last night he dropped pretty dramatically at +2 so I stayed up and checked at +3. Missed doing an early morning check- my husband did the poke but Oberon wouldn't let him near him with the strip. Shook his head instead and my kitchen looks like a crime scene. :rolleyes:

    Has your DH tried the trick of putting the blood drop on his fingernail, then testing from there? I think we've all had crime test test spots. :p

    Sixth cycle after those blues, hopefully that means you'll see blue today or tonight.

    216 at +4, which is the lowest he's been at that time point. I think I'll keep checking every 2 hours just to see how this goes. Looks like we're heading for blue!

    We're going to try the fingernail trick... you should see my kitchen table. I really can't complain too much, though... he hops right up here when he hears the zipper of the test kit so he can get his ham. He just doesn't like feeling something on his ear.

    Make sure it's not honey ham!

    Oh, I hadn't even thought about that! I'll have to check. He's only getting a little piece, but still. Maybe we'll switch over to chicken.

    Some of the deli meats, including chicken, are brined, which means soaked in water, sugar and salt. Plain boiled or baked chicken bits are good.

    He'll get used to you messing with his ears...just pet him and rub his ears every time you can...soon he'll start to enjoy it. And he'll think it's his idea to ask you to pet his ears :)

    PMPS is 335. I think we're doing pretty well here! I'll check at +2 and then off to bed unless something looks weird.
