I did it. I pricked my poor, sick, 5 year old's finger to check his blood sugar. I've only done it once before, right after Grace's diagnosis. When he realized it hurt he didn't want any part of doing it again.
But yesterday he started throwing up. And kept asking for water. And he still wears a pull-up at night.
So I checked him. My husband held him down, with him screaming and crying, and I pricked his tender little finger.
Fasting (almost 24 hours without food) blood glucose = 68.
