Day 36

Well lately we have struggled with both of the kids being really high... consistently high... And the weird thing is that both kids have been...So I thought maybe they were getting sick.. or maybe the insulin was bad.. but neither were true..I switched out their insulin for fresh new insulin and no change... Its been a week, and no sickness (YAY!)..SO finally today I called the endocrinologist and they changed their insulin amounts and calculations...

I was trying not to be bummed about it, because although I really would like to have a week where the kids have good numbers consistently..thats just not the case..ever... Their pancreas' just dont tell us what they are doing or what they need....We are constantly "reading the numbers"..
 They are good, and healthy kids, but the ups and downs of diabetes have been loud and clear lately..

Hopefully the new calculations will work and they will have good numbers for a while..

Today (after I was saying they have been high a lot) Madi had a low.. She has been in the 300's every meal the past few days.. But today, we were at the creek and she said she was hungry, then she looked a little lethargic.. all tired like.. She was 51.. Gabbed that juice quick!! Its hard because she cant tell when she is getting low yet, so we have to be on the ball all the time.. looking for those small clues:)

It would be so nice to talk with others who have little ones with Type one, to see how they deal with the highs and lows.. Leave a comment friends!!
