I got the call from the pump rep today and Kacey's pump is officially in the mail. It was shipped today and we will get it next Wednesday. I got off the phone and cried! We've waited for this moment for the last 8 months and it's finally here! I called her CDE because we're still battling some really nasty highs. She went on and scheduled our Pump Training while I was on the phone with her. Kacey will be hooked up to a saline trial on March 20th! We go back on March 24th and she will be hooked up to insulin and be an "official pumper"! They are not making us do a whole week of saline so thats very cool! So she won't have the pump in time for her birthday but she'll be hooked up VERY soon!
Now about those highs....
We're really fighting the D-Monster the last few days. She's had some really nasty highs that are making her grumpy, tired and ready to eat everything in sight. She's called me from school the last 2 days in tears because it's making her feel bad. She doesn't have a cold...no sign of a runny nose or a cold even coming on....no sign of illness at all! (Knock on wood) Her teacher said she could tell Kacey wasn't feeling well and she wasn't acting herself with all these highs. It's affecting her grades in a MAJOR way! So we need to get these under control fast!
Here is what she's gone through since yesterday morning....
Ummmm can you say DOSE CHANGE! Her CDE said to leave the Lantus at 14 units and then we are changing every mealtime dose.
Breakfast will be 1:8 instead of 1:10
Lunch will be 1:10 instead of 1:12
Dinner will be 1:10 instead of 1:12
Snacks will be 1:10 instead of 1:12
Hopefully this will help bring those numbers down! I feel so bad for her because I don't know what else I can do? There was mention in the comments yesterday of puberty. Holy cow! Could this be happening already? How would we be able to tell if she was?
