Surprisingly 68 this morning (Sunday Funday and all) - and was a bit shaky as well.

Not to worry, usual 40 point spike by the time I made it into work, sigh.

Looks like a cooling trend for the next week. And anyone in MD? Geez, I read a month's worth of rain in 2 hours...

95 (5.26) this morning. Cooled down a bit yesterday,96° was the high. Much better than 102° the day before. A nice breeze out of the North made it even nicer. Should be more of the same for at least the next week.

@Bunjee, yes, because I followed my doctors advice for the 20 years after my diagnosis, all strictly by ADA standards, my pancreas is truly compromised. It still makes insulin but not a lot and my response to carbs is slow. If I keep my carbs low I do just fine but I try to stay under 25g of carbs a day and usually am around 20 or less. I'm pretty good at keeping my macro's at about 5% carbs, 80% fat and 15% protein. I have been in ketosis for about 3 years, my blood ketones run around 3-5 as a rule. I guess I'm a bit OCD about my bg and still test 4-5 times a day but it's something I consider a challenge and I find it worth working at. It would be easy to just let it go but where is the fun in that ?

115. Not too bad. Still winging it.

AuntiKris, having the meter read a bit low is actually not a bad thing when you are on insulin. They are always so concerned about lows. I had a Contour Next USB meter that went wonky. Ascensia is replacing it when they get the next batch in. In the meantime, I'm using a regular Contour Next. I really prefer the EZ one, but there is no cord available for it at this time to use the computer program. poo.

GrammaB, glad you are fine. We have some kindof smoke going on here too. Mom had such a bad headache this a.m., we shut the house up and turned on A/C and sure enough, her headache went away.

75 (4.16) this really smokey morning, 76 (4.21) at bedtime last night.

Well I really jinxed myself yesterday by saying the fires weren't close. Yesterday afternoon a fire roared to life 30 miles south of here. It grew from 300 acres to 1000 acres in about 4 hours. Right now it is at 3500 acres and still growing. Now the smoke is horrendous! Homes have been burned, but they don't know how many yet. No one injured thank goodness. It is called the Roaring Lion fire as that is the road it started on. No know cause yet but they don't think it was by nature.

Today is pretty calm, but tomorrow a cold front is supposed to pass through with 25-35 mph winds in the valley and over 50 mph winds on the mountain ridges. The cold will help but the wind not so much. End of week dry thunder storms predicted. Yikes.

I don't think it will get this far, but you never know. In Arnold, CA we used to call this the wait, watch, and worry stage.

Arrrrggggh ! Thinking about you Barb and keeping fingers crossed. The Erskin fire started 30 miles from here and that was scary as the winds drove it 15 miles the first two days but fortunately it calmed down and the fire turned. Hope you are all right but it is a worry for sure.

So far 14 homes have been lost and many out buildings. It is reported to be one of the fastest growing fires in the area ever. When it started yesterday 2PM MDT it was growing 200 acres an hour! Tomorrow is going to be bad as a dry cold front with winds is coming through.

I've been down this road before, having lived in the Sierras in CA. I have things ready to go, just hate to have to leave and say that goodbye to my home.

I'll be thinking of you GrammaB and hopefully it won't get that far!

Interesting. Thank you. I had the OneTouch Ultra from Kaiser. They switched me to the OneTouch Verio IQ. That meter was always high by 20-40 points. I went back to the Ultra. I think it might be a bit low (maybe 10 points), but it is more accurate than the Verio.

So you saw a 40 point difference with you lab results? What was your lab, and what was you Ultra readings?

94 (5.21) is morning. Up early for a doctors appointment. It's going to be 109° in town today so I like to get in and out early. It's been in the mid 90's at home.
