BM Full Stat Day:

A.M. Blood Glucose:
    Time:  1221
    Reading:  107
A.M. Blood Pressure:
    Time:  1254
    BP:  156/69
    Pulse:  56

P.M. Blood Glucose:
    Time:  2006
    Reading:  128
P.M. Blood Pressure:
    Time:  2004
    BP:  106/53
    Pulse:  58

    For dinner I served roast chicken (she had a thigh and a leg, her favorite parts), very lightly steamed broccoli, Uncle Ben's Original Style Long Grain and Wild Rice (with no additions, which is unusual, but we're getting low on vegetables) and Hollandaise Sauce, which Mom insisted on putting over everything in abundance.
    She announced, just before dinner, that she thought we should have strawberry shortcake again. I agreed provisionally, saying that I'd serve it "later" if "we" weren't too full. As it turned out, we were both too full all evening, even though she didn't retire until midnight, turning her light off at about 0030. When I kissed her goodnight, though, she suggested that we have the shortcake for breakfast. I quickly figured shortcake against the berry pancake breakfast we occasionally have and agreed, why not?
    Her Bowel Movement occurred at 1740, upon awakening from her nap: Fairly good volume; good consistency; very easy elmination; a bit smeary to clean-up.
