(blood glucose below 20)
Hello? What? Never saw that before! Of course, that was the last test strip in the vial. So as I was running (actually sprinting) downstairs to grab a juice and the glucagon, I also grabbed a new bottle of strips. In the 8 seconds it took to do this, I ran a mental checklist of her appearance. She was breathing slow and deep, as if in a deep sleep. She wasn't sweaty or agitated, and didn't appear unconscious - just, you know, asleep.
So instead of immediately jabbing my daughter, who may be unconcsious or may just be sound asleep, with that ENORMOUS glucagon needle, I thought maybe I should double check. I know I've been having some trouble adjusting to our new pool activities, but this seemed a little extreme.
Recheck - 93.
I need a vacation from summer vacation.
