Day 119

oh man diabetes kicked out butts this week...
Madi had a bit of a breakdown..

She had a kinked site and Moderate Ketones which caused her to be sad and sick feeling. 
Her blood sugar was 504.  She cried and cried, begging us not to give her a new pump site.
"Please I dont want diabetes, I never wanted diabetes.  I dont want a new site, i dont like shots!"
My eyes welled with tears. I couldnt stand it.  My sweet girl.
It is so hard as a parent to see your child go through this.  Knowing they NEED to get the insulin to stay alive, but they beg you not to do it.

After a little break, and a warm bath she ended up getting a new site.  Because she was high I went to get the Pen because she didnt want a new pump site.  As soon as she waw the pen she said "oh, the pen is so big, I want a site!"
And that was it. New site, better numbers, lots of water and now no Ketones.. Whew... we got though it..
Our family deals with Type 1 every day, but
last night we really hated diabetes!
