Kacey had another one of those "perfect sites" that was giving her some amazing blood sugars and when those 3 days flew by, she just wasn't ready for a site change yet! I let her push the snooze button and she went another day with perfect blood sugars. Thats the longest I've let her go with a site. It was 9pm last night and we really tossed around the possibility of waiting until this morning to change it but since she'd alarmed already telling us she was down to 20u of insulin, we decided it was probably a good idea to go on and change everything so she could start a fresh day today without having to do everything. I'm glad she's feeling so good :)
Blood licker....disgusting or a diabetic habit? How many of you out there lick your finger after a finger stick? Kacey's gotten into this horrible habit of testing really quick and just licking her finger and going on about her business. It didn't bother me at first but now it does. Germs...thats the first thing that comes to mind. With the spread of the flu and other nasty viruses, it makes me paranoid now. When she was first diagnosed, we made the effort to wipe her finger with alcohol and then we were told that it would dry her fingers out so we just started pushing the "wash your hands" issue. Then she would wipe her finger on a cotton pad and just keep it in her case. Now...washing her hands... Sometimes she does, sometimes she doesnt. So how do we get her to break this habit?
Still hobbling around in pain here. Called a connection of mine that works for the doctor that they referred me to and I have to call the office on Tues since Mon is a holiday and I'm going to get an appt MUCH sooner (Tues/Wed) to have it checked. I'm just tired of being in pain :( so hopefully the xrays will pick up whats going on!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
