Eden just got up for the day with her pump, site and tubing in HAND – not attached to her body.. My heart completely dropped to the pit of my stomach..
Blood Sugar = 393
Ketones = 0.6 – (phew ! – borderline small/medium level)
I have no idea how long she hasn’t been getting insulin.. I should be thankful – these numbers could be MUCH worse.
Quickly did a new site and gave her a correction dose of insulin to bring her blood sugar level back into range. When done she promptly turned around and stumbled back to bed.
2 finger pricks and an extra site change to start the day.
Poor kid 😦
Eden NEVER complains about all this crap she needs to go through.. I KNOW she doesn’t feel great, but she doesn’t say it… For now – I’m going to let her sleep – getting to school today just doesn’t seem important.
I wish I could FEEL what she is feeling and take this away from her – it really isn’t fair..
She is a tough kid with a heart of gold and today T1D sucks for her.
