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!

 

June 24 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. We here are having what is called June Gloom. It is not fun, because in the mornings, it always starts out cloudy. And we do not get to work on our fur tans. But do not worry, furiends. Eventually, the clouds clear, and by mid morning, we get to see the sun. The only problem is that the human is often gone by the time the clouds clear. That means no balcony time with the sun out.

That is not too bad, but it is fun to go to the balcony and enjoy the sun. So we felines will have to enjoy the sun when we can.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings for the week. They averaged 169 for the week,  which is very close to what we saw last week. They averaged 166 then. So we did not see much of a change in the average.

Even though my blood sugar readings averaged around the same, there is some good news. We did not have any dangerously low readings. There was one time where my blood sugar was too low to risk an insulin shot. But even that reading was still safe, and it was not hypoglycemic.

So that means, furiends, that my blood sugar seems to be stabilizing around okay levels. The human worried that he would have to change my insulin dose again and wait for my readings to stabilize. Fortunately, he does not have to do that.

The human still cannot relax completely. We still need to be sure my blood sugar readings stay where they belong. And that is something he needs to do for the rest of my life. Still, the human and I are both happier when my blood sugar readings behave.

Let’s hope they do that for the week ahead. I will tell you about my blood sugar levels next Monday.

May 6 Blood Sugar Readings

Koji Decided to Test The Water in the Tub

Hello, furiends. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings. Before I get to that, the human was not feeling well last week. He went to the white coated humans to get help. And when he went, one of the things they told him to do is to soak in hot water for 15 minutes a few times a day.

In a home of bengal cats, you know what that means. Koji and I immediately started to investigate the tub, since there was water in it. The human may have wanted to soak in peace, but we felines decided that we would join him. And Koji even decided to make sure that the water was good enough for the human!

When Koji was not in the tub, he and I splashed the water. The human was sitting in the tub, and we swatted the water. It was fun making it splash all over the place, even though the human did not like it. Koji even wet his paws and then licked them dry to drink from the tub, furiends.

As for my blood sugar readings for the week, I think they are good. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 110. That is much lower than what we saw the week before. But the human and I both think the lower doses of insulin are helping.

You see, furiends, we dropped my insulin dose to prevent my blood sugar levels from dropping too low. And for the week, the lowest reading we saw was 60. Even that reading is not dangerous. We didn’t have any times where the human skipped giving me insulin. And that prevented my blood sugar from spiking.

It seems like the new dosing is working to keep my blood sugar under control without putting me at risk for hypoglycemia. And that, furiends, makes me happy!
