Day 182

well we have been "pumping" for a few days now..

Im getting up at midnight and 3 am to check blood sugars..

He was low the first night.. then last night he was in the 300s, no ketones.

Today they changed his basal rate so we will see if that helps..

but the night checks....ugh!
Its brutal..

Im supposed to be a D mom at night..and a full time mom during the day on NO sleep..

Its pretty insane and I am exhausted...

He seems to like the pump so far and is doing good at school with it. 

Its a whole new thing....and Madi is waiting for hers to be approved by insurance!

Before we know it, we will have 2 pumpers...
