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.

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!

September 2 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. Today is Labor Day where I live, which means many humans have the day off. I hope that if you have the day off, you spend lots of time cuddling and playing with your felines. After all, we are like your four legged family members!

Some White Coated Humans Are Working Today

If you are enjoying a day where you do not have to go to work, remember that there are many humans who are working today to help felines, canines, and many other animals. I am very grateful to these kind humans. I will even say thank you to the white coated humans who are working in emergency hospitals today. After all, some of us will get sick and we will need to go there!

Hopefully that does not include me, and if my blood sugar readings are any indication, I will not be going there. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 149. That is a little lower than the 157 we saw last week. I like the readings we have been seeing, furiends. If a white coated human saw them and did not know the human gives me insulin twice a day, they would not think I have diabetes!

Another good thing is that even though I had one reading where the human did not want to risk giving me insulin, it still was not so low that it was hypoglycemic. Of course, my blood sugar went very high when I missed my insulin shot. But that is okay, because we got it back under control quickly.

Furiends, I will tell you about how my blood sugar readings go next Monday. Until then, I hope you enjoy a little extra time with your four legged and two legged friends. After all, that is what days off are supposed to be all about, right?
