Day 76

Well nights have been a little hard lately for some reason..

Madi went to bed at I think it was 167..then about 2 hours she woke up and was murmuring and fussy and whiny..

So I thought maybe I should check her before I sent her back to bed..

So I did and she was 65...

Oh she had to completely wake up to drink juice, then have a carb/protien snack so she would be fine the rest of the night. Then we tried to get her to go to bed, but after her 2 hour "nap" she was wide awake!! ha

I was a little upset about the  whole thing because I just kept thinking "what if I had just sent her back to bed and not checked her?"

Im a "what if" kind of person...I worry....

But I was just glad I did check her...

Then last night we had a baseball game..It was hot and stuffy outside and we were there for 3 hours.
Madi fell asleep on the way home, but I had to check her before I put her in bed...She was asleep on the couch and I checked her but she was 104...too low for bedtime..SO I had to wake her up..poor girl she was SO tired!! So fussed through it..had a snack then off to bed she was...

Type 1 can be scary..and there is no "day off" ever..Its a constant checking of numbers and making sure they are in the safe zone...
