Day 93

Last night Madi woke up several times...I checked her every time because when she usually wakes up crying, she is low... But every time I checked her, she was in a good range..

Then this morning she woke up and I was trying to help her get ready for preschool but she was tired and limp...She woke up at 178 so I thought she was fine..

Especially when the kids get sick, they tend to have high numbers for a few days before, or at least the day of ...but she has been fine..

 She got dressed and had breakfast and we went to take Craig to school then Madi just said she was way too tired to go to preschool.
She just laid on the stairs.. didnt want to climb them at all!! Poor girl..My stomach she sick?, getting sick?, whats going on... Normally when my kids are liek this, I could say ok, go get in bed and rest.. no big deal, keep an eye on them and let them rest it out..But T1D changes all of that.. Sickness means a lot more than just "rest" and possible meds....

I brought her home and she went back to sleep..

I figure she was just tired because she woke up feeling tons better, ate and wanted to play and help clean..

When the kids get sick, its just so hard..checking for ketones and waiting those few seconds to see what their number is..and if its good news or bad know??

Im glad she isnt sick..maybe she slept bad (obviously since she got up a bunch), bad dreams or something...Im just so glad her numbers are good today and she isnt sick!!
