Just a Few Notes in Review:

    Now that I'm caught up, I've decided that from now on I think I'll record the day's stats in one post (assuming that I don't have anything spectacular to report that can't wait). Seems to work better that way.
    I also doubt that I'll meticulously record her breakfasts and lunches, since those rarely change. You can assume, from now on, that breakfast is always some sort of breakfast meat, usually bacon but sometimes Canadian bacon, or ham, or sage bulk sausage or Polish sausage; and toast with margarine and cinnamon and O.J. I'll mention specific breakfasts if it seems warranted.
    As for lunches, I'll only record unusual lunches, as she usually has V-8 juice or coffee, cottage cheese or yoghurt or sliced cheese and either pickles or olives.
    Dinners, of course, are a different matter. I'll probably be doing some experimenting with this, as I'm noticing that her morning blood glucose has been running a bit high, lately. I'm going to wait, though, until she has her blood drawn on February 1st for an A1c and we get the results back on that.
    Over the last week or so she's refused lunch or had a very modified lunch: Maybe only V-8 juice, or maybe only cottage cheese, or maybe only olives. So far, though, I'm not concerned. If she's losing weight, it's weight she can afford to lose. As well, she hasn't been moving much, lately, so her lowered appetite is not a surprise.
    As far as sleep is concerned, over the last week or so we've pretty much kept it to 12 - 14 hours a day, including naps.
    So, that's it, folks. All caught up. I think I learned a's hell to try to catch up after a month of not entering. I won't be doing that again soon, I don't think.
