We have been dealing with highs and lows. No surprise there. We did have two "shocks" this week. We had a low of 63 at 3am. Gave the juice fairly easily. Tested fifteen minutes later and it had only gone up one point. More carbs. Tested fifteen minutes later and still not in a safe enough zone to fall asleep. More carbs. Waited another fifteen minutes and we were close. Waited another fifteen, tested, and could finally fall asleep, worrying that he would the have a rebound high or that his dawn phenomenon would make him high by breakfast. Nope, he had a beautiful 126 at waking. Don't ask me how. This disease plays games that aren't fun. The other shocker was at bedtime snack. Tested he was low, gave carbs, waited and then tested again and the scariest number popped up on the meter. 38. With my heart stopped I tried not to panic and we tested again immediately hoping it was just a fluke. Yup. Still low but not that low. More carbs. Another test and back to "normal". It's always a dance or fencing or just a stupid disease that doesn't play fair. I've aged easily 10 years this past year.
Drago now has strep and I am hoping and wishing and praying to everything that no one (especially Sugar Bear) gets it. We managed to avoid passing the stomach bug (knock on wood) so maybe...
In order to work towards even healthier habits I got a Vita-mix. I love it. I've made smoothies and soup in the last two days. I want to cut out soda for me (the kids don't drink it) and I think this will definitely help.
Health, independence, life. Just dance and breathe.
