No words to describe

There is no way to describe the feeling you get when you check your child's sugar and it's 56 forty-five minutes after he ate a huge lunch. He has a boat load of insulin left on board and by boat load I mean enough to sustain the people on The Titanic.

I juiced him, fed him, and decreased his basal. Now, I'm bracing for the impending high sugar.

I hate this &*%@!#* disease!!!

Aaahhh!!! As the panic sets in.....

We've had times like that. It's nervewracking to say the least.

I feel for you. How is Riley doing now? Hope all is well. I hate when that kind of thing happens. At least they get the chance to have a little treat. LOL!

Yes, that is scary! And scary sucks when you're scared for your little guy.

Naomi said...

That sucks. I hope Riley is doing okay now.

You can hate it, but he has to own it, and he is with your help.
Your a great mom and have a great kid.
Sometimes Diabetes has no rhyme or reason to it and you just have to deal. IT sucks, but u guys can do it!

Thanks you guys.

The juice, snack, and temp basal did the trick. He didn't go high like I thought he would.

I just had to vent about how I felt. Most of the time I'm OK, but when he's low and has so much insulin floating around I panic a bit.

Thanks again for all of your comments.
