    He is on his way up. Can you monitor tonight? Have plenty of tests strips and high carb food, just in case?

    No worries, but always good to tag someone with Lev experience, which Marje has too.

    I would shoot full dose, start with a +1 and a +2 to get an idea what the cycle will look like. Lev kitties often nadir near the end of the cycle, and with onset typically +4, he should be going up the next two tests. One comment, it would be good sometime to get a few more tests around +3 to +5, to get a better handle on when his onset is.

    Thanks wendy. I'm on it. I've just re read the stickys and I see now why that +11 is so important, and the +1 and +2.
    Totally take your point about +3 -+5... on that too.

    Thank you again for being there for me and Toby xx

    Glad you shot the full dose :) I wonder if Tony went lower than the blues but the blues would trigger a bounce anyway.

    Thanks you both, just done +3 and he is 187.... do I need to be worried?

    It is almost 11pm, do I need to test through night?

    Looks like he has onset. Can you test again in an hour? How fast he is or is not dropping may give you a guide how late you have to stay up.

    Scared but loving the greens.

    Been up with him every hour, surfing the GREENs all night beautifully, one happy mumma! This is massive massive progress for us! If I wasnt so tired I'd do a yippee! Husband up in 3 hours so going to let him get a +11 in.

    I'm on pen and paper and my mobile, will do spreadsheet first thing for you all to admire this new shade on Toby!

    Ok, so actually blues, but still, that's the best cycle he has ever had.

    I think you should be safe to shoot. He’s come up already. I’d leave food out for him throughout the day.

    Are you able to grab a test before you leave for work?

    A lot can happen between +11 and preshot.

    Yes I think you are fine to shoot. He has come up nicely from +11
    Are you able to leave out some food for him to eat during the day?
    Will he eat it all at once or graze.

    Thanks Bron, yes he is doing so much better and is looking and behaving really well too, he is definitely less hungry than he has been for months.
    My dad is brilliant, I am lucky he is retired and a cat person, I have taught him how to test too so hopefully he will get in a test at lunchtime, Toby is so good at being tested he will just lie there!

    That's great your Dad will test for you..
    I taught my 9 year old granddaughter (she's now 14) to test because she wanted to learn. When I had to unexpectedly go into hospital for a week she taught her mother and my DH to test and my daughter gave the shots. I never thought my DH would test but he became really good at it and it made such a difference and it allowed me go out much more.

    Wow, Sheba must have been a total poppet too at being tested, bless your Granddaughter, that's a lovely thing for her to be able to do for you and also good life skills, who knows when she might need to something similar!

    I hope she never needs that skill! But she was very interested in it all and knew what all the normal numbers were..and what was high or too low.
    Sheba was always very good about testing.

    Thank you Linda, it's all because of you, your guidance with prozinc and your suggestion for Lev. He really is doing so well xx

    Sorry I missed you; I wasn’t on the board yesterday. Looks like Toby had a great day. BTW, the subject line in this condo as 12/5 as the date instead of 11/5. Please tell me it’s not December ;):p

    Can you please start a new condo for today? Thanks so much!!

    Great cycle! I'm chuffed, hes bounced today but not severely.
