called in his lunch order and tried to get him a taco salad and penne

the penne had 15 g but am not sure. He did have that for dinner
tonight and it wasn't an overly large portion.

how they figure his basal. I was worried that he'd go hypo because he
didn't eat the carb portion of his meal. But he did not. The test BG
before every meal.
