September 16 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. You will remember that last week, I told you that my blood sugar readings had the human  and me somewhat concerned. They were not at a point where I could get sick if they stayed there for a long time. And they were not so low that they were dangerous. But they did jump a lot from the week before, so we wanted to watch them closely.

My Blood Sugar Readings Had me Looking Like This

And that is why the readings from this week were so important. These readings would tell us if the human had to have a conversation with the white coated humans or not. If they went much higher, he was going to need to do that.

Fortunately, that will not happen. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 192. That is down a little from the week before, when they averaged 196. That does not mean that my blood sugar readings were as we like them, though.

We had some readings that were a lot higher than we wanted, and then there was one where my blood sugar levels were too low to risk an insulin shot. The human and I do not know why this happened.

Still, the overall levels are good. We will see if we can knock a few more points off my blood sugar readings next week. In the meantime, I will spend my time enjoying sun puddles and swatting the human when he annoys me.

September 9 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. It has been an interesting week for me. The human got a new bottle of insulin. And Koji and I have been visited by an avian friend. This avian friend is very brave. Koji and I were both out on the balcony, and the avian friend came right over and landed on one of the plants.

Our Avian Friend

They started to chirp, and they did not seem to care that Koji and I were right there. The human got worried that Koji and I would attempt to catch the bird. But we did not. We just watched the bird closely.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 196. This is much higher than we saw last week. We are still well below the level where it can be dangerous long term. But the human is still concerned about the big jump.

Sometimes, this happens when I get a new vial of insulin. The human does not know why that happens, but it does. And the readings towards the end of the week were much better.

I am hopeful that the trend we saw towards the end of the week continues. I will let you know about it next week. Until then, I hope you have as much fun with your friends as Koji and I had with our avian friend!

July 16 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. First, I will tell you about something that amused me and Koji. One of us was bad, and we knocked down the toilet paper holder. The human was not happy about this. But he knew he had to put it back into the wall.

The Human Could Have Used Some Feline Help

Koji and I saw him go into the tool box, and we decided to observe. The human started off the job off easily. He measured the spacing for the holes and leveled things off. But then he could not get the fasteners into the wall. And he got more and more annoyed.

Eventually, he stopped trying to use those fasteners and used the ones that came out of the wall in the first place. You will not be surprised to learn this made the human very frustrated. He said many words that I will not repeat to you.

And Koji and I were silently snickering the entire time. This probably was good for my blood sugar readings, but it was not good for the human!

On to my blood sugar readings for the week. They averaged 184 this week, which is up a little from the 174 we saw last week. While the numbers are a little higher, they are still at a safe level. The individual readings were also good news. None of them were so low that they would be considered hypoglycemic.

We did have one reading where the human did not want to risk giving me insulin. That reading was lower than we want. But it was still above the level considered to be hypoglycemic.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week next Monday. And maybe I will get to snicker at the human some more. If I do, I will be sure to tell you about that. He will not be happy, but Koji and I will be!
