In the D world – it pretty much all boils down to blood sugar numbers
good = in range
bad = low
ugly = way high
On the Dex graph
white – in range – you are AWESOME !
yellow – HIGH – warning, warning – need insulin!
red – LOW – danger! need sugar NOW!
we have certainly had our fair share of ALL of the above lately
I have tweaked and tweaked insulin settings and gotten them to be pretty darn good at certain times of the day.
problem is – that was for a “normal” day
but what the heck is normal anyway? in this case – a non-school, spring break kinda day.
In the D world – even if you kept the exact same schedule and ate the exact same foods every day for a week you would get different results..
now that we are in the second week of our back to school routine it appears my tweaking may have gone a little too far
– or she exerted herself more than usual in PE today
– or had a smaller mid-morning snack
– or the 6 basketball games and 2.5hrs of clinic over the weekend finally caught up with her
– or the sky is blue 😉
oh – but on the plus side – I was a big girl D-mom and resisted the GIANT torturous urge to call the school as I watched her redline it during the school day.. letting her take control and do her thing.
IT WAS HARD
but I’m ready for a glass of wine…
