I did Indy’s blood glucose curve on Sunday. It wasn’t without its hiccups, but we got there even if he now has multiple piercings in his ears.
I just want to say he’s been an absolute sweetheart through all this. Sitting still while I do the hourly tests for one thing, because if he didn’t sit still, it would make it very difficult to get the tiny blob of blood onto the tiny test area on the strips.
I thought his curve looked odd, but when I showed Tom he said it was very good for this stage in things and he has reduced his insulin dose again. I’ll do another curve in a fortnight and we’ll see how it is looking then.
So that’s the good news - plus he's put on a little more weight, also good.
Bad news, my email program Windows Live Mail decided to delete ALL my storage folders. All efforts to restore my lost folders have met with failure and I’ve now come to terms with the fact that they’ve gone forever.
My lost emails include a few that were waiting for replies and some that I had kept for over 10 years including emails from people I loved who are no longer with us. I'd kept them because, like treasured letters, they meant a great deal to me.
But there’s no point crying over lost emails and so I’m not going to! It was my own stupid fault anyway for not realising that my emails were not stored on my computer, but somewhere in the ether.
In other news, I have only stabbed myself once by accident with Indy’s syringe so far – no it wasn’t loaded and yes I bled!
And also here’s a reminder about the Ifakara Bakery Project Writing Competition – read about it at Joanne’s blog here.
