Yesterday was exhausting!
At 4pm, Kacey woke up from her 2 hour nap. I heard her yell for me and screaming she was low. When I got to the bed she was shaking and shivering like she had a fever but it was from the low. She had Herbie in her hand and looked up at me with this pitaful face and said "I'm low!" I tested her...63. Yikes! So I tried offering her juice and she refused and pulled the covers over her head crying. I grabbed 2 glucose tabs and she ate those. She was all sweaty and just laying there staring at me like she was looking right through me. She hadn't even noticed the bear beside her :( I tried to show her but she just seemed so out of it! After 15 min, Herbie beeped telling her to test again (I absolutely LOVE this feature!) and she was only up to an 86 but she was more alert. She said she was hungry and all she wanted was spaghettios...ugh! It wasn't until she sat up to eat that she realized that Herbie was in the bear. She was so excited! About an hour later, she starts screaming with her tummy hurting. Test again...338! Ugh...so now I'm thinking this is the start of ketoacidosis that everyone keeps talking about. Test ketones- negative. Wow! So by 7pm, she was down to a 253. She was still hungry but I had her wait til 8pm since that was her snack time. She was down to a 210 by then and so we did a correction and dosed for her snack. I went to lay down since by this point I had a terrible headache. I started to watch HOUSE and I don't think I made it 10 minutes into the show...LOL! Ya think my body was telling me I needed rest? Ha! Next thing I knew, my alarm was going off at 2am. I shut it off and realized Kacey was in bed with me. Hmmm? When did that happen? So I tested her and she was down to a 118 with no IOB so I knew she'd be ok through the night. She woke me up at 3:30am because she was thirsty and her throat hurt again. I asked her how long she had been in bed with me? LOL..."Daddy put her in bed with me at 9pm when it was bedtime". Ahhhhhhhhh! He's a slicker! I don't even remember her getting in the bed. I guess he figured if she was laying beside me then I wouldn't have to get up to check her at 2am. (Wonder if he was trying to make a point? LOL!!) Unfortunately, he forgot to put the lancet and test strips on the nightstand...hahaha! I still had to get up. The alarm went off again at 6am...tested her and she was up to a 158. Geesh...from a 118 to 158 with nothing to eat! Now that we got Kayleigh off to school, we're both going to lay back down and try and get some rest. I'll update later :)
