June 25 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, everyone. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings. I do not have the normal number of blood sugar readings to tell you about, because the human was away. Koji was nervous when he saw a different human come to give us noms. And instead of talking like he normally does when he gets noms, he was silent.

I recognized the human who came in to give me noms and to give me my insulin shot. This human used to work at the white coated humans where I used to go. But now they have another job and the human does not see them there.

Still, they love felines and were missing interacting with us since they do not have a feline at home. So they agreed to help the human by giving me my insulin shots and noms. And while they will receive green paper things for it, they said they also got paid by getting to spend time with Koji and me.

It was good to see this human, but I did not like being away from my human for a few days. He came back, like he always does. And both Koji and I were happy about this.

Now that you heard about my adventures, let me tell you about my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 208, which is down quite a bit from the 240 we saw last week. And I am much happier about this than the readings we saw last week. You see, last week, my readings were getting too close to a point where they could be dangerous over a long period of time. Not this week.

Hopefully, having the human around all week and not having a human who I do not know well give me insulin will keep my blood sugar readings at a good level. I will let you know next week.

June 5 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 want to share a funny story about the human with you.

The human, Koji, and I were surprised when we learned that we felines had fleas. We are indoor cats, after all, and fleas are not something we would expect to get. Well, we got them. The human treated us, and we felines are doing much better. But the human is not so lucky.

The human changed the bedsheets yesterday. He did not know fleas were in there. Some of them got onto him. He did not like it at all! He knocked the fleas off his skin, and then swatted them with his hand. I do not know if he killed all the fleas he saw, but I think he felt better.

After getting treated for fleas, my blood sugar levels have climbed. This is not a surprise, furiends. After all, with those annoying creatures sucking my blood, it is not a surprise that I had a lower blood sugar level. And the human thinks this may be why my blood sugar levels climbed this week.

For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 226. That is a lot higher than the 169 we saw last week. It is also too close to the 250 level where bad things may start to happen if my blood sugar remains there for a long time.

The human will keep my dosing at three units for another week, and we will see if my blood sugar levels drop a bit. If they do not, he will likely increase my insulin dose to 3.5 units. I do not like this, furiends. Knowing that I have a human who will help me makes me feel a lot better, though.

And next week, I will let you know what happens.

May 28 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, kind humans. The human tells me that today is Memorial Day. I hope that you take some time to day to think about the brave humans who gave their lives to protect us. Their sacrifice helped make sure that many humans and their four legged friends get to enjoy their lives!

Right now I am recovering from the second time that the human brought me fleas. He did it when I was a tiny little mitten kitten, and he did it again recently. I was scratching a lot and it cause me to lose a lot of my fur. And I did not like the fleas nomming on my blood, which caused me to lose weight.

But the medicine the human gave to me seems to have worked. He has not seen any fleas in a while. And I am not scratching as much. Hopefully I will gain the weight I lost back soon! I am definitely feeling better, because I am sitting next to the human while he types this. And I am purring and even drooling!

My blood sugar readings for this week were pretty much the same as they were last week. For the week, they averaged 169, which is pretty much the safe as the week before. Those readings averaged 175.

The only thing I do not like about my blood sugar readings is how sometimes they are getting too low. The human is also concerned about that. When they drop low, I do not show any signs of hypoglycemia. The only thing that I do is demand noms, but I demand those when it is time for them anyway.

The human does not like those low blood sugar readings, and he will see what he can do to prevent those. Because I lost some weight, he may drop my dosing down for a while. But he will talk to the white coated human first.

I will let you know how this goes next week.
