Default Lucy's getting spayed tomorrow! And a disaster...

The Pet Care Center had a cancellation so Lucy is getting spayed tomorrow. That's the good news.

Bad news... I messed up two BG tests today. I have no idea why. Nice big drop, started sucking up the strip... and stopped just short. Twice. There's actually blood left over, the strip just quit taking it.

Am I doing something wrong? This happens once in awhile & I don't think I'm doing anything differently.

So now I have one strip left & a package due tomorrow. Do I use it tonight or wait till tomorrow?

I had kind of hoped to get a comparison between my meter & the lab number.

We'll be heading up there about 6:00 AM. I normally test at 7:30, feed at 7:45 and inject at 8:00 AM so the schedule itself is perfect.

Paws crossed!

These are her #s from the last three days...

Default Re: Lucie has a foster home!! Yes!! Thank you Rick!!

It's possible to get bad strips... maybe they dried out or otherwise aren't taking up the blood properly.

If you can manage to purchase a bottle of test strips locally tonight, I could reimburse you for them.

Well, nobody in town has 25's. Best I found was $55 for 50.

I didn't think it was a dire emergency, sooo.

If you think it's an emergency I can probly still go get 'em.

It's time for Lucy's meal & injection anyway.

They are a bit pricey when you buy them at the pharmacy. Hocks sells the same thing for about $39.

Just stopped by to say Hi Rick, I get agitated with the strips also, I wish they would come down in price.

Hi Rick:

I also wanted to stop by and say hi to you. I've been reading up on Lucie and will follow her story. What a wonderful person you are to take her in. Have you had diabetic animals before?

Just talked to Rick. Lucy is home after being spayed today and seems to be doing well!

They both had a long day so it may be tomorrow before he gets a chance to post.

Thanks for the update Natalie. Lucy and Rick(y) ( couldn't resist, sorry!) both deserve to get a good night's sleep tonight.
