I think this might be the answer. geneva usually eats the candy (chocolate
stuff) in mid afternoon or right before bedtime...NOT GOOD!
I insisted last night that she only eat a sugar treat...like sweet tarts
....before bed. and her levels were ok. 197 at 9:30 (bedtime) and then
at 11:30 only 223. but then at 2:30 am she had plummeted down to 111 and
was 66 at 5 am! I am still messing with the 1 am - 3/4 am slot.

well this candy has done it!!!
I did get geneva to sell me half of the junk for $5! she is real happy with
her new pokemon cards! right now there is very little candy left. I keep
taking some out and putting it in a spare bag which I am going to give to
the teachers at school or something.

that is terrific, marie! we are better too, I think. although if you read
my post this am about site degradation, we still have to change out after
the third day. despite the V/H mix. yesterday she got up to 500 before we
decided to do a site change.
now, if I can only get her to try the sils. I had MM send me some samples
which I told her I would do with her. I think she might like it better.
she is still traumatized by the time when the introducer needle did NOT come
