I go in...
stepping on toys in the dark.
. uncover her tiny toes to prick one
to get a small drop of blood..
.I apply it to the meter and wait 4
I hurry to get a juice box. she
sits up and I whisper "drink, drink" she drinks with her eyes closed,
Lays back down and I have to tell her to "drink more madi,
youre too low sweet girl"..
she sits back up,
eyes still closed, opens her mouth to the straw and drinks....
mama" she says and she lays back down.
Her sweet little face lay on her
pillow, off to dreamland once again.
She falls right back to sleep,
no worries for her, as I sit and wait 15 minutes.. hoping her blood
sugar has come up enough for her to have a quick snack so she can sleep
through the night safely.... dreading having to wake her again in a few
minutes to recheck and make her eat...
when all she wants to do is
I dont always have to check my kids at night.. but if they have wacky numbers during the day, new site change, are sick, or are rally active before bed then I do check them.
I hate when they are low at night.. They just want to sleep and they look so peaceful.
But why dont they wake up.. why are they still sleeping if they blood sugar is getting dangerously low.
What if I didnt check?
What if I slept though my alarm?
Craig start baseball this week so Ill be getting up at least 6 days a week. sometime he is just fine and sometimes he drops quick after baseball even with a -10% basal..
when he is active its really hit and miss.
