    7.4 today, hoped for a lower number , but did eat too many carbs yesterday.. followed my confused mother to the hospital so she could have the booster dose of Pfizer-vaccine yesterday .. she was so confused yesterday, and on the phone the night before she was telling things happening that couldn't be true, my sister said she sounded normal a few hours before..well I wen't to pick her up at around 12 , and she still hat not left her bed.., so when I sat waiting at the living room I had a look at the pill-package in front of me ... she was one day too far in taking her medicine (which is among other morphine tablets) that explained a lot..:woot::wideyed::wacky:.. She never did that before

    Hello all,

    5.3 this morning.

    @Estragon -- Hugs for the pain due to root work. Hope tomorrow will be a better day for you. Agree with the others that the pain is most likely the cause of the higher blood sugars.

    5.5 snap @BrianDoc
    @1970clea I’d definitely have gone with the second reading!
    @Freema hugs for the caring for your confused mother, it’s such a worry.

    (Managed to post this somewhere else, inexplicably... clearly a lack of sleep affecting my judgement!)

    An amazing 6.1 this morning. Was out for sister in law and father in law's birthday and allowed myself two glasses of red (first alcohol in three and a half months) and a slice of birthday cake so that, on top of my still stubbornly clinging on cold, meant I was expecting to rack up big numbers.

    Perhaps I am, on occasion, going to be able to indulge after all?
