*Here is an example of a call: This is (your name) . I’m starting with the breakfast reading for Monday, July 21. That reading was 108. My lunch reading was 120. I forgot to take it before dinner. When I checked it before bedtime, it was 72, and I drank some extra juice with my bedtime snack. On Tuesday, I took it at 7:30 before breakfast and it was 130, at noon it was 200, and before dinner it was 240. I’ve got a sore throat and I may have a fever. I will be at work for the rest of the day, so call me back there at (615) 000-0000.
