    Good morning Wednesday pumpers and prickers, middle of the week already and ready to start the day with a 7.5 this morning, which was good with a little bit of help from NovoRapid last night ( I had a low earlier, which kept creeping up):rolleyes:
    Happy Wednesday :)

    8.6 this morning and 5.1 just now - winning! (for now at least)

    Bright and sunny but cold here again today - oh and one broody young hen - what hen gets broody in the middle of November.......oh one of mine of course! Had blood test results back on the cat, as expected all tests come back A-OK.

    @Dabootie not had to deal with a hypo induced combative person - find it best to leave them be until they are semi conscious then get some glucose down them:playful: I've probably mentioned in the past about a work colleague who was semi-conscious and I managed to get some full fat coke down him bit by bit and was interesting to see him come around bit by bit a bit more each time after each sip of coke :wideyed:

    Managing work and BS isn't much fun, but infinitely easier with new insulin.

    Hello friends,

    Diabetes is out of whack today. I went from a 12.2 to 20.9 this afternoon then 13.8 this evening and now we are back in to single digits. I feel awful :( But today my dad said we are going to Vietnam to see grandma after Christmas. It’ll be my first time seeing my dad’s side of the family. I am on my way home and my mum has spoiled me with a huge bag of chinese food items that I can use to make a nice herbal tea. :)

    I forgot to mention that I completely forgot to book a blood test a week before DAFNE. I happen to have booked it at the very last minute for tomorrow. I’m hoping it’s okay because I’m still quite new to how things work with my hospital. My previous hospital never asked for a blood test but based it on the blood test from your last appointment. But I have my first session tomorrow and a new hospital to scout where the session is being held. My current hospital is far too small to host a DAFNE course so it’s with a neighbouring hospital.

    Morning, two high readings yesterday, even though I didn't eat a lot. My pen appears to be malfunctioning, not dispensing Insulin when I checked afterwards, so I will use a new one. Off to work now, but one child short as they were sent home yesterday with rather a bad tummy :(

    Have a great Thursday folks :)

    Didn’t realise I shared my day with Sir Frederick, 60 years young today. Levels on a nice level 5. Going to upset it with a high carb, high alcohol meal. Because I can! Whoop!
