    Nice numbers @Canvaspic and I hope all went well with ECG or if results come later all goes well. What is really special about this thread, at least, is the concern members such as yourself express for others even when they themselves have concerns to deal with.

    Sounds like a real roller coaster for you but the post dinner level is fine so hopefully you are back on an even keel

    Little high during the night, then coming down to 5.2 around 5am, sip of juice, up to 8.1, bolus, down to 5.6 at breakfast time. :) I guess I'll put that down as a smiley face?
