Sammie is getting better

Last night, I bought the glucose meter and a 50-day supply of test strips. Combined, it was $100. $80 of that was the strips--yeah, I was wrong about the price on those; they're not forty cents each, they're eighty cents each. And those were the cheap ones! So after I got home, I fell into a pretty bad depression.

Fortunately, this morning I woke up feeling better. My mood was further elevated by the fact that Sammie's glucose was only 118, so I didn't have to give her any insulin. I hope this continues to be the case.

Unfortunately, Sammie seems to be much hungrier and has taken to chewing on paper and cardboard, which is both annoying and unhealthy for her. She tends to vomit it back up. So I guess I have to figure out how much food I can give her to balance the glucose and her hunger.

Still, she's definitely feeling better, which is very good. I hope she stays that way.
