Happy Birthday Jesse. What a gallant little girl you are, and so lucky to have such a dedicated and knowledgeable Mum.

Hope you get to eat a bit of cake, just this once.

Hugs from the pug herd & Joan

thanks natalie haven't stopped by at jesses thread in awhile

time for an update on her
she is at her 6 year sugarversary .

she is doing well. her seizures from epilepsy have been greatly reduced not sure why she has never taken medication for it but forever grateful

she has been diabetic longer than she has not so for her diabetic is normal and she has spent all her life epileptic . i think she always had some neurological issues but we decided to let that be because for the most part her quality of life is quite good

her routine being quite unorthodox has worked well for her probably the only one meal diabetic on the planet and shows that there probably endless possibilities in terms of routines for regulation

she still enjoys her 1 hour walk in the morning and hunting rabbits in the afternoon . she demands the latter . no rabbits are hurt from her exploits . she was nudging a baby bunny the other day to move because thats what she likes is the chase . she not as quick but she still has the enthusiasm of a puppy

my daughters dog will be with us till may when she graduates and then he will be off on new adventure .jesse being an only child enjoyed having this rambunctious lad and i think she will miss him

nothing has changed dramatically with her routine the pinto beans we added 1.5 years has worked out very well for her . we make small adjustments depending on fasting sugar.

i have come to the conclusion the insulin for dogs maybe a bit to strong for them human and dog thats why its difficult to get the type of regulation closer to what would look like normal . i feel you could get a one shot a day with a one meal type strategy if they had the write insulin but i dont think thats going to happen anytime soon as dogs do fine with whats available now and it doesn't sound like any pharmaceutical companies are interested in taking up the challenge

so with jesse we take it one day at a time never look to far ahead and look back and think about what she has accomplished shes a good sweet girl

she is really the sweatiest girl and has a wonderful soul tami . it was such a delicate nudge with her nose and the bunny just wouldn't move i guess she or he did not feel like there was danger from jesse

thanks tami for the one touch ultra strips i did a really good comparison to jesses meter which is about 5 years old and it compared quite nicely
