SO – if you’ve been reading my blog recently – you will know that we have had low blood sugar issues 2 days in a row. I only KNEW about the issues because I was able to SEE what was happening with Eden’s blood sugars thanks to Dex and Nightscout..
Today – we lost connection – right after I heard from her at lunch
So I CANNOT presently SEE what is happening…
She had a good lunchtime blood sugar number and I’m pretty sure, right about now – one hour after eating that her insulin is kicking in and she is starting to drop. (her blood sugar spikes after eating)
But I don’t KNOW that for sure..
A few months ago – I wouldn’t have known either.
I really don’t need to know what it is doing every minute of every day.
But a couple of months ago she wouldn’t have been going to basketball
tryouts/practice on her own without strict guidelines.
With us being able to remotely monitor her, it gives peace of mind.
It makes things a little more laid back.
It gives a sense of security.
I told Eden on the way to school today that she MUST put Dex in her pocket whilst at basketball today.
She didn’t previous days – thus she didn’t even know her blood sugar was dropping.
Quite honestly, I don’t know if there is a problem with Dex – or the uploader phone that sends us the data. All I know right now is that I have NO IDEA what her blood sugar level is and she is about to start basketball in minutes.
I have sent her a text message – she probably won’t check her phone.
I have sent her sister a text message – she probably won’t check her phone.
I have resisted the urge to send a message to the coach – I hate to put her in the middle. Eden NEEDS to be responsible for herself.
- Will Eden check her Dex and carry it with her?
- Will she figure out her rig isn’t transmitting and fix it?
- Will she check Dex throughout tryouts to ensure she isn’t dropping too low?
- Will she check her phone to see she has a message from me?
- Will history repeat itself and Eden require sugar to get through the next hour…
- Will I be able to stop myself from calling the coach and/or school?
