Good morning, kind humans! It is time for me to share my blood sugar readings with you. But before I do, I will share with you a story that will embarrass both the human and my sisfur Jacey. The human was sleeping, and Jacey loves to snuggle with him.
The human had his hand out, and Jacey loves to sleep on his hand. Last night, she wrapped her paw around his thumb. Well, during the night, Jacey decided she wanted to wrap her paw around more tightly, and her claws cut into the human’s skin and he shouted because it hurt. Jacey was startled, and she clamped down harder.
It was funny to see because Jacey was so sad she hurt the human, and the human was mad and happy with her at the same time!
While laughter is supposedly the best medicine, I still need insulin to control my blood sugar levels. It looks like Jacey’s antics are helping with that. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 170. This is higher than last week, but it is still well below the level where over the long term, I can develop complications from being a diabetic cat.
That 170 average for my blood sugar readings was significantly higher than what I saw last week, but I can see why. We had a few situations where the human did not feel comfortable giving me insulin, because my blood sugar was at a level he thought was too low. Naturally, with no insulin, my blood sugar spiked.
It is not too bad. I can live with these blood sugar readings. I know that the human will try to do things to avoid any spikes in these readings during the next week. We will see if they work and I will let you know about them next Monday.
