    Wooooo!!! AMPS 10/7 110 bg stalled for 15 min 116bg. No shot, fed as normal.

    Today is my "Friday". I took off Thursday and Friday, plus I have my usual Monday off. I'll be able to do a good round of testing tomorrow, then on Friday when I go to physical therapy Ill pick up some more test strips.

    Thinking about increasing Tucker to 2.5 tomorrow morning. I'll be home for the next 3 full days to get mid cycle tests.

    Next step up in dose would be 2.25U Jami.
    We increase by 0.25U if the nadirs are between 100-200.

    If it wasn't for that low of 110 on the 7th, I might agree with a 0.5U increase. But personally I think a smaller increase is warranted here.

    p.s. 243 and another 243 and another 243? Sheer chance, but what a coincidence!

    OH my gosh!! Youre right! How weird! LOL I didn't even realize that.
    Sigh.. I meant to say 2.25u. :facepalm:

    My family speaks "Jami" its a hard language to understand :D

    Hopefully Tucker will get back on track and get "with the program" and give you some blues and green BG's again with the dose increase. Come on Tucker! Show us some blues! Blues are awesome Tucker! Don't you want to show your mom Jami what a good boy you are?

    So is that like Esperanto or Klingon or High Elvish? Or some sort of communication code where you don't even have to say something and someone instantly understands by your expression or stance? Or they complete your sentences for you without even trying?

    We just like to clarify things here, so we understand better.:D
    We're "hip" with that kind of thing.

    p.s. Forgive the bad pun. Hope your real hip is feeling better.;)

    I hope so!!
    AMPS 219. 2.25u.

    HAHAHAAA!! Klingon, how funny, but, yes basically! IF someone can complete my sentences all the time for me I would LOVE that!! I have a problem with saying silly things that doesn't make any sense, but, people that know me well.. well, get me. Like, "Oh, dont step in that muddle of pud." Or, would you like a "wottle of bater" Ugh.. the struggle is real. :D Word fishing has been a problem for years so has memory issues.

    I totally get that! I need to review what I write before I post so I dont give the wrong information.

    Haha.. love the pun! Thank you though!!

    Human family members are important too.

    I see that Tucker "touched" the blue zone today. Not very far into that range, but still a blue and worthy of a celebration.
    Tucker had a 50% drop on his dose today, which is about all you want him to have drop during the cycle.
    Here's hoping he clears the bounce subsequent to his blue today, and clears it quickly.

    I was VERY excited to see a blue zone again! Its been awhile!
    Speaking of family! My son Cole is coming down this weekend to visit!! Its been a little while since I've seen him. I'm SO excited! I feel like this funk I've been in has been lifted! :woot:

    Glad your son will be visiting to cheer you up.

    Some tests in the PM cycle are important, to let you know what is going on then. Without those tests, you are missing half your data as someone else on here says repeatedly. Even 1 more test in the PM, before you head to bed would help. I'm guessing the PM post shot tests stopped around the time your hip started bothering you?

    Will your hip let you do those evening tests right now? Or are you too stiff and in pain? Or perhaps how about getting someone else in the family to help you test Tucker?

    Are you back to work already?

    Looks to me like Tucker did clear that bounce up to the red zone, and quickly. Yeah Tucker!

    Eeek!! Sorry I didn't see your post! I was having computer problems at home. I was using the SS app on my phone to enter in his info. Everything is fine now!
    I was just thinking about that this morning. I really need to start getting those tests in again!
    Yes, when I get home from work my hip really bothers me. BUT, its not to the point where I cant test Tucker. Poor guy, I haven't been doing a good job to help him. You're right.. I'm missing half the data that he needs to have.

    My son Cole is going to stay the night on Saturday. Meaning that Tucker is going to freak out.. like, vet freak out. He has the worst stranger danger! He's normally only around Bill and I. I'm curious to see what his BG's will be over the weekend.

    Cole usually hides under the bed when he comes over.. crazy guy! HAHAA.
    Yeah, Tucker will be MIA when Cole is here. No zoo today. They have really strict rules regarding covid. So, we're just going to stay home.

    Wasn't the Nike slogan "Just do it?" Maybe you are too young to remember that ad campaign, but you can still make "Just do it" your new motto for life.

    My motto is "Treasure Every Day."

    Yes! I remember that.. I had to google it. LOL It was 1988 when that slogan was introduced. I was 11.
    Absolutely. We aren't guaranteed tomorrow. Thats a great motto to live by Deb!!

    I was excited to see 2 blues yesterday!! YAY Tucker! Here's hoping for some good numbers today as well!

    The weather has been crazy hasn't it! I ONLY think we had maybe one or two thunderstorms that I remember (when you get banana (my brain) involved you know that number could change HAHA) Normally here in MO we get a lot of storms and tornado sirens. I'm just wondering what its going to be like this fall. Lots of black wooly worms. I know theres a significance with that.. just cant remember. HAHA.. That should be MY slogan.. "Sorry, I cant remember!" :rolleyes:

    PMPS 544.. sigh.. He did get into the greens today, 89, which lead me to reduce the dose tonight to 2.0. I know I decided to lower his dose threshold to 80, but, I decided to just go with it.

    What a bounce! A huge GIANT bounce up to the blacks.
    Agree with @Shelley & Jess that Tucker looks much better in blue.

    Come back down Tucker old man.

    How is the visit with your son Cole going? Tucker still hiding?

    I know it!! What the heck. I even retested just to make sure and yep.. Blacks. He fell pretty quickly to the reds though. Same AMPS of 411 than last test of 411 last nights+1
    He's going to take some time to get those numbers back down again. I still need to see about getting Lantus. I'm thinking he might respond better.. Is the dosing protocol the same as Prozinc??
    Cole is going to come down next Saturday.. I had a monster migraine the other day and had to cancel.. Thank goodness we decided not to go to the zoo as well!

    Better this evening. Back down to the pinks.
    Bet he is back down to the yellows by the AM pre-shot on 10/20/20.

    Sorry to hear about your migraine and the postponed visit by your son. Next weekend.
    What kind of fun PT exercises do they have you doing? Leg lifts to build up strength? Stretching?

    Yes! Last time on 10/5, when he gave me a black, he seemed to bounce back fairly quickly. :( I was hoping to see some yellows.. This am he still gave me a red 409.
    Thank you.. Its been a long time since I had one. I'm actually planning on going to visit my parents this coming Saturday. Cole lives with them for now. It'll be nice to see them all again.
    Yes!! Leg lifts, bridges, heel slides (lie on my back, slide foot down until leg is straight, then slide back up again).. ya know.. all the fun things LOL :D

    Back to work today. I'm only working Tues and Wed this week.. I took Thurs and Fri off. Trying to burn all my paid time off by the end of the year.

    I'd LOVE to see the numbers that Jessie is showing for Tucker! You've done a great job with her!! I feel like he gets so close to showing blues, then his numbers start bouncing all over the place.
