- While eating lunch Libby says, "Mommy? I'm low." Mom says, "Really? Then eat your sandwich."
- Libby climbs onto my lap and says, "Mommy? I'm high. Need to eat." (Obviously when your BG is high, you need insulin instead of food, but I'm not going to try to explain that to a two year old.)
- After checking Lainey's sugar, Libby wants a turn. I pretend to check her by cocking the 'poker' and pushing the button. When she hears the click, she says, "Ouch" even though I didn't really poke her. Then she looks at the meter and says, "One-Two-Three." Usually she just leaves it at that, but this morning she said, "Mommy? I'm low."
Maybe when Libby's older I'll explain that with her having a shunt and a pacemaker, I have enough to worry about. We don't need to add diabetes to the mix!
