December 9 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. I apologize for not being able to tell you about my blood sugar readings yesterday. The human had to go in to work early, and he did not get a chance to help me tell you about them. But do not worry, furiends. Everything is okay.

Last week, my blood sugar levels averaged 214. That is higher than the week before, where they averaged 194. We missed two readings, however, because the human was away. Do not worry, though. I had kind humans staying here who gave me my insulin shot.

Koji and Me Relaxing

The human warned them against picking up me and Koji. He told them we would tolerate it for a little bit, but then we would get annoyed and they would not like it. They could not resist with Koji, but they were smart. When he started to squirm, trying to escape, they let him go. They did not even try with me, because after I saw what they did to Koji, I gave them a look that warned them not to try.

Koji and I enjoyed having other humans here, but we were glad when the human came back. I was less nervous than Koji, because I knew the human would come back. Koji was much more happy to see him, and he ran to the door and hugged the human’s leg when the human arrived.

Silly Koji. He needs to learn that the human will not give him up like his former humans did!

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, they will be a little lower.

November 25 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. You will remember that last week, I told you that my blood sugar readings were not cooperating with me and the human. Well, I am sad to say that that is still happening.

The average is not so bad. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 209. That is down from the 219 they averaged the week before. Neither number is dangerous. But what is happening is that there isn’t any real consistency to my glucose levels.

My blood sugar dropped too low for me to get insulin three times. Naturally, without insulin, the next reading showed a big spike. We do not like this. We want my blood sugar to be more consistent.

I do not know why this is happening. But we will continue to try to get things under better control.

Now on to happier things. I understand many of you humans nommed on turkey last Thursday. The human did as well, and he brought some back. He put some of the leftovers in the refrigerator and ate them the next day.

The human does not like the skin, so he threw it away. And do you know what Koji decided to do?

Koji decided that since the human did not want the skin, he could eat it. I am afraid that he got this idea from me, furiends. You see, the human lets me help him clean his plate up after he is done. I lick the plate clean after there are no more human noms on it.

Koji Looking Innocent

Koji took it a little further. He opened the cabinet where the trash can was, and dragged the trash can out. Then he tipped it over and dug through the trash to get the skin.

The human was not happy about this, and told Koji to stop. He put the skin in our food dish, and we nommed on it.

That was fun, furiends. Well, except of the human getting annoyed at Koji.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, they will be more consistent!

November 18 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. I wish I had better news, but I do not. The average was not too bad. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 219. We like to keep it below 200, but this is below the level where it starts to cause problems. Still, the week before, my blood glucose averaged 165.

What is more concerning than the average is how my blood sugar crashes sometimes. The human does not know why. I eat all of my noms, and the dose of insulin I am getting does not change. But it crashes anyway.

And then, because I am hypoglycemic, the human does not want to give me any insulin. That causes my glucose levels to spike. We do not like this roller coaster.

The human thinks he is going to get my blood sugar to a level where we want it, and then he will reduce the amount of insulin I get slightly. You will see it in the data for next week.

We hope that will work. But we do not know. All we can do is experiment with it and see how it works.

Koji and Me Relaxing

I will let you know about how things go next week, furiends. Until then, do what I am doing and relax with a furiend.
