Riley is doing better now.
He only had to take Ibuprofen twice yesterday for his temperature. Once at 7 AM and then again at 8:30 last night. So, I think whatever it is, is about to taper out.
His sugar was still running high last night. He was 369. He got a correction. Two hours later he was 427. I haven’t seen a number like that in a very long time.
I started worrying that his site was bad, so I gave him an injection by syringe.
You would have thought I was trying to kill him. He kicked and screamed and cried. Michael had to hold him down so I could give him the injection.
And to think, he used to do that 4-5 times a day and it never seemed to faze him.
But, he's always worse with a site change if he's high. Or, I’m wondering if he’s developing a needle phobia like I’ve heard someone else say.
He came down nicely after that and I kept a wary eye on him throughout the night. He had his lowest sugar of the last few days at 5 o’ clock this morning. It was 131 and I started to finally feel like maybe we’re at the end of this thing.
To answer some of your questions, no I haven’t gotten a whole lot of sleep lately. But, I’m thinking tonight will be better.
I’ll still be getting up a couple of times to test sugars, but I don’t have to check a temp and wake him up to take medicine, and lie there and worry that ketones are invading his little body.
Tonight I just have to worry about him having a bad low.
So, it won't be any different than any other night.
