Holden had another basketball game last night. As we stood in line to buy food Riley was eyeing some very delicious-looking cupcakes.
"Can I have one?"
"Let's see what your sugar is first."
I checked his sugar while standing in line: 63.
"Yes. I guess you can."
"Can I eat it first?"
"Yes, you need to go on and eat it to bring your sugar up"
Normally, he would get a juice box before he could eat but this particular cupcake was piled high with sugar laden icing. I knew he would eat the icing first. He always licks all the icing off first and eats the cake part last.
I rechecked him in 15 minutes: 93. He got a bolus for the cupcake and the cheeseburger he ate.
Two hours later he was 91. Since he still had insulin on board and we'd be at the game a while I told him he could have a snack. We got back in line and this time he eyed something covered in chocolate. I asked the person behind the counter what it was. It was peanut butter crackers covered in chocolate.
Riley ate two of them. I bolused accordingly and two hours later he was 88.
Even thought is sugar went low it was not dangerously low. He got to eat a few treats and his sugars responded rather favorably.
We needed a night like that.
