My blood sugar has dropped 50 points since breakfast. The nurses will attribute this to their insulin shot; I maintain it's because I've stopped eating rice. I don't know how long the insulin shot's effects are supposed to last, but if 72 hours pass and my numbers stay low, I'm calling it for the rice boycott, and I don't care what they say.

Pack on the fat and protein! Keto all the way.

Congrats on the lowered blood sugar. No white rice must have helped, although I imagine the insulin probably had some effect as well. Too bad you don't have the leisure to run a clinical test.

I dreamed about you last night. You were still in the hospital, but you seemed completely recovered, and - what's more - were dancing in the hallways with hundreds of people who were visiting you. Where did all these people come from? Apparently, your recent blog posts went viral, and millions of people are breathlessly awaiting each successive post! When some of those who seem to have taken upon themselves to set up a fund to pay for your bills discovered that I was a 'Friend of Kevin,' I was inundated with questions about you and your interests. I was flabbergasted, but I managed to find a few things to say. In a discussion of your literary interests, they discovered that I write poetry, I recited a couple of old ones ("San Francisco Morning" and "Water Witching"). There was some initial confusion as to who the poet was, but when the poems were clarified to be mine, a blog titled "Friend of Kevin" went online and had people pledging to support my poems, whatever that might mean. I checked my bank account first thing this morning and saw that the balance was no higher, so that support might not be financial. Anyway, that's really what I dreamed (except that I haven't actually checked my account, for I'm not that big a fool).

That is a very specific dream. Thanks for sharing.


Dropped another 50 points since then.

That is good news!
