November 4 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. I will also tell you about some of the things that went on in the house this week.

My blood sugar readings made both me and the human a little nervous. The average for the week was 169, which is just fine. That’s a little higher than last week when they averaged 161. But that is not a big deal.

What made the human and me nervous was how my blood sugar readings dropped very low a couple of times last week. We had two readings where I was hypoglycemic. Both times, the human skipped my insulin shot. And naturally, my blood sugar levels spiked after that. We do not like these roller coaster blood sugar readings.

So while the overall average is okay, we will continue to monitor my glucose levels to see if we can figure out what makes them do this. We have been doing this for years and we still cannot figure it out.

Relaxing on a Sunny Morning

Koji’s antics last night probably elevated the human’s blood sugar readings. He decided to do laps around the house. Normally, he only does it once or twice. But last night, he decided to do it many times. The human woke up when he heard Koji running around. And then he got mad when Koji knocked something down.

Furiends, the human did not have to scold Koji for knocking things down. Koji scared himself, and both the human and I laughed at his fluffy tail. But soon, Koji, the human, and I all calmed down and went back to sleep.

Do your felines run around the home in the middle of the night and wake you up? Share your stories about that with us.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week, furiends. Hopefully I have more consistent readings for you.

October 28 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, everyone. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, they averaged 161. That is higher than we saw last week, when my blood sugar levels averaged 148. But it is exactly the same as what they averaged two weeks ago, which is unusual!

While the average glucose level was okay, there were individual concerns. My blood sugar levels dropped low enough for the human to skip my insulin dose twice. One of those was not by a lot, but the second one was very low. Furiends, I was hypoglycemic for the second one. Fortunately, I nommed a lot right away and got my blood sugar back up.

The human was definitely concerned but I showed him how strong I am by nomming quickly and getting my blood sugar levels back where they need to be.

Speaking of the human, this week, he cleaned the floors in our home. He does not like doing this, and he was very unhappy about having to do it. But he does this about once a month. I asked him why he does it that often, and he told me that if he didn’t, the floor would get very dirty.

Well, of course, as soon as he did this, Koji and I were not happy, because the floor did not smell like us anymore. So we went about getting our scent on it.

Now, you may think that we peed on the floor, but we did not. As soon as we could, we plopped down on the floor and started to roll around. And the human came back from the store with a paper bag. Koji, of course, decided that it was time to get into the bag and destroy it.

So much for the clean floor! But that is life for a human with felines.

Anyway, I will tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week next week. Until then, I hope you floor stay clean.

October 21 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. You can see me supervising the human here, making sure he tells you about them correctly.

I am Supervising the Human Here

For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 148. That is lower than the week before, where they averaged 161. But while it is lower, it is not anywhere near the point where I will become hypoglycemic. The human and I are not worried about it.

During the week, there were a few times where we had to reduce my insulin dose. But even with the reduced insulin doses, my blood sugar levels stayed under control.

I think this is why the white coated humans said their testing showed my blood sugar levels were well managed. Hopefully, this continues. I do not want to go on the blood sugar roller coaster again. I hear you humans like roller coasters, but it is not fun for me when my glucose levels do that.

Speaking of fun, do you know what Koji likes to do to the human? He likes to dart out the front door and go for a run. He is smart. Koji will only do this when the human’s hands are full. If they are not, Koji knows he cannot do this because the human will get him.

We both get a laugh out of hearing the humans shout Koji’s name in an exasperated tone. And Koji will run down the hallway with his tail straight up in the air.

Koji annoys the human a lot when he does this. But the human calms down quickly. He is glad we do not live in a home where the entrance goes right outside. Koji would get in trouble!

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week, and hopefully, I will have more good news for you.
