Not a Good BG Day
It finally donned on me that she wasn't getting her insulin. Sure enough, her pump site was infected. We put some numbing cream on, gave her a syringe shot of 2 units (very traumatic!) and left to play with cousins at Blast Off.
12:15pm--Lainey comes to me crying. We get her pump back on and check her sugar. 39!!! She began consuming food like crazy: fruit snacks, fish crackers, apple juice, Cheetos. After about 2o minutes she was back running and playing in the ball pit.
I can't get over the fact that she went from 537 to 39 in an hour and a half! We've never had anything that drastic happen like that before. I shouldn't have given her 2 units of insulin since she would be running around and getting exercise, but how was I to know what would happen. That's just what diabetes is--a guessing game of the unknown.
Oh, what a day....
