Those are wonderful #'s....and I loved the story of 'snatching' a little treat while you folks were out

Before we knew what was going on with Shadow, I came home with groceries and the bags were on the floor as always. He would always sniff around them, sticking his head in, but never bothering anything...well, I walked away to do something, and when I came back to the kitchen, he had pulled a bag of frozen chicken breast tenders out of the grocery bag, and had made the startings of a small tear in the bag!! I was so mad and also puzzled with his behavior! Knowing now that this was the start of his diabetes and he was probaby starved, it makes sense. My husband and I said he must have temporaily lost his mind due to illness

Well, I knew it was going too well. Annie had five days of great numbers ranging from 81 to 211, with most in the 120 to 170 range. A total of 15 tests within this range. Life was good.

Then this evening = 392. I didn't do a +10 hour test, so I don't have an idea what happened. Same food and insulin for the five days. The two "minor" differences this evening was that I took 2-3 minutes using the grooming razor to clean up the area where I test. Second, she bled a river instead of the small droplet. Don't think this had anything to do with the evenings numbers.

As you know, I use a mix of R and N. The standard has been 2 units R and 7.5 units N. This evening I gave 2.5 R and 7.5 N. I'm marking this up to "just one of those things" and am not too concerned. I'll probably test around 11pm (pacific time) just to see where she bottoms on the R.

Glad she doesn't throw you "just one of those things" too very often, Craig
