We reduced Lily's thyroxine dose, for hypothyroidism, a week ago, so I've been paying more attention to her BG levels and so far so good. For example, her BG was 252 at fasting tonight. I'll probably do a curve next week to see if her insulin needs to be adjusted.

She likes to watch me mow the grass. You never know if I might stir up a squirrel, chipmunk or bunny

After reducing her thyroxine from .6mg to .3mg, Lily has settled in with an increase of 1 unit R and 1 unit N.

She now gets a mix of 4 units Novolin R and 14 units Novolin N.

I was just reading about Cowboy. I'm so sorry. He was beautiful, just like your Lily.

I pray your hearts are healing.
