After I wrote about the fear of the ‘low’, she had a low or lows…
The first wasn’t a true low but was the first time she felt sick. It was a school and she was only 94 but she had never going below 100.
The next day she went to 84, same time.
Now she is regularly going to 75-85 around the same time.
The other day she went to 77, ate some carbs then wasn’t hungry before she had softball practice. Then she was high 260-300 after practice before she ate and we covered both her carbs and used the sliding scale. I knew it was too much but had no instructions on how to handle the situation from her doctor.
I set my alarm for 2am to check her just in case. I woke up at 1 and fretted about it for half hour before waking her up, it was 68. She ate some smarties and rechecked at 153 after 20 minutes. It wasn’t scary but I was glad that I checked her when I did.
The doctors have instructed that if she is playing softball to not use the sliding scale and to just cover carbs. She doesn’t have another practice until next week so hopefully the long weekend will be uneventful. However she is staying two nights with my mother in law and I am just a little nervous. She is capable but it’s normal to feel nervous right?
One thought on “A Little Low”
It is always a careful balance, it is never the same even if you do the same things and there is the same amount of activity, and it is good to feel nervous. Nervous is constant, and that is what keeps your wee one healthy and okay. Great post– the numbers here are really good, too. You are doing a great job. 🙂
