    Hello all,

    @PatsyB -- So sorry for your loss.
    @DJC3 -- Hugs for the frustratingly and unexplainably higher levels.
    @Pipp -- Great fasting blood sugars yesterday.

    4.4 for me this morning (-->too much red wine last night).

    5.2 this morning.
    Thanks for the encouraging praise, @ziggy_w . Also for everyone else in here. Keeping records and sharing has been a great incentive to keep on keeping on, especially when the going got tough. Feeling quite optimistic at the moment that I am getting better control, after a very sticky few months of higher levels .
    You are all winners. Thank you.

    6.5 today but I do know the jar of sauce used for supper was too carby so there’s a reason. @DJC3 hug for the unexplained FBG after fish supper. @PatsyB sending you a big hug for the loss of Briani. @Pipp great FBG agree entirely with your sentiments.
