Unhappy Lucy has gone to The Bridge 4/21/2014

I feel like such a douche. I haven't checked my email for a few days.

Lucy passed on to The Rainbow Bridge on April 21, 2014 from liver & kidney failure.:(

Re: Newly Diagnosed, still not Controlled

My Avatar is a picture of Lucy on her first day with us. That bag of beans was ON TOP of a rack that was ON TOP of a counter!:eek:

She was very food motivated. I used that to our advantage. ;)

Into the 300s is a GOOD thing! You're heading in the right direction. It takes time for things to even out. One of the hardest things for me was waiting the 5 days after an adjustment to do a curve....

Yes it does like like you're headed in the right direction. Sometimes the waiting is the hardest part.

Roscoe is regulated in that his BG is fairly consistent. I would be looking to get the numbers lower.

Re: Rick and Lucy, our rescued cattle dog

Other way around. I consider myself blessed to have had her in my life if just for a short while. It hurt to say goodbye but I know in my heart it was best for her. ;)
