Diabetes is a fuck. Staying up late to make sure my cat doesn't go into hypoglycemic shock.

@clinkingdog Yup. His blood sugar got down to 41 mg/dL, but he was fine. We also suspect our glucometer is a little off; the vet's read 69, which is juuuuuuust into technically hypoglycemic, but without any other symptoms not worrying.

@clinkingdog The vet actually thought there was a good chance this is the start of his diabetes going into remission (which happens a lot for cats) so it might be an even better thing, if we can be careful going forward and make sure not to give him the riskier "too much insulin" failure case.

@wlonk Oh nice! I didn't even know remission was possible!
