Sorry. I don't mean to offend those with sensitive ears (eyes? since you're reading?).
Yesterday, Grace's numbers were STELLAR! We rocked it! Caught when she was heading down in time for a quick snack. Saw when she was trending up in time for a bolus to take effect.
KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!
Till after dinner.
I'll back up... Before dinner she was 145. AWESOME!
Bolused for 75 carbs. Large amount due to some delish looking corn on the cob. Fine, no prob. Even gave her a small extra bolus because she really, really, really wanted a banana after dinner. Good. Got it covered.
Then the sh@! hit the fan.
She goes to get in the shower and screams for me to come into the bathroom.
"What, my Little Angel, could possibly be the problem?" says a mom about to be blindsided.
"This." she says, and proceeds to show me that her tubing had somehow DISCONNECTED from her infusion site.
Apparently, at some point before she was bolused for her WHOPPINGLY LARGE dinner, she'd disconnected. She has no idea how it happened.
Post dinner number - 314.
One correction bolus and two hours later - 384.
Correction by injection and 1 1/2 hours later - 124.
I'm having enough trouble keeping up this summer. I don't need curve balls thrown at me like this.
