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!

 

July 8 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. Before I do that, I will share with you a picture of my good furiend Anakin. Anakin, you see, was born without his hind legs and he did not have a pelvis.

But furiends, he does not let this slow him down. As his human says, he is full of love and life. And here is Anakin, relaxing in his favorite cat tree.

Anakin has come a long way from a tiny feline who escaped humans trying to help him. He learned to trust his human, and now he is happily living inside. And furiends, look at that fluffy tail of his. When I am annoyed, I do not think my tail gets as fluffy as Anakin’s tail is normally!

I am proud to call Anakin a furiend. He is another special needs cat who shows that while we may need more attention, we are very good at showing affection to the humans who care for us.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 174. That is a little higher than the 161 we saw the week before, but it is still a good average. The human is a little concerned, though. We saw two blood sugar readings that were lower than we like. And then we had to skip my insulin shot.

On the occasions where my blood sugar was low, I nommed very quickly. And as you can see, my blood sugar went back up after I did that. But we still do not like seeing readings that low. The human does not know why this happens. Sometimes, it will be fine, but then sometimes, it drops too low. He will continue to monitor this and see what we can do.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Until then, remember that felines like me and Anakin, despite our special needs, can be very fun felines!

June 17 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, kind humans. I hope that you enjoyed your weekend. If you are a father, I hope you enjoyed your day. While the human is not my feline father, he is like a human father to me, Jacey, and Koji. So naturally, we felines enjoyed showing him how much we like him being our human father.

Jacey Being a Purrito

Jacey did a lot of talking to him, and she even hopped on his chest and made biscuits. The human liked it, but he did not like Jacey’s sharp nails poking him. Koji decided that it would be a good day to hop on pop, as one of your children’s books say. And I refrained from swatting the human, giving him friendly paw taps instead.

I hope that all of you fathers of humans enjoyed your day with your human children. I also hope that they did not hop on pop if they are too big for that!

Now on to my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 166. That is similar to what they averaged last week, when they were 153. We had a few days where my blood sugar got lower than the human wanted. But overall, these are good blood sugar levels.

The human is a little concerned about how we are seeing too many blood sugar readings that are lower than we want. We do not know if it is because I do not feel like nomming, or if my insulin dose needs to be adjusted. We will talk to the white coated humans to see if we can drop my insulin dose a little more.

Remember, we have already dropped my normal dose by half a unit of insulin. So we do not want to drop it again, and then see my blood sugar levels climb too high. But we also do not want to risk me getting sick from blood sugar readings that are too low.

This is the tough balancing act the human must do, furiends!
