The look of a low....
She started eating but I knew she wasn't going to come up too fast. I watched her little hand shake as she brought the sub to her mouth. The tears began to run down her face. "Kacey, what's wrong?" ... "Mommy I'm so hungry but I'm scared because I still feel low." .... "Ok...let's test so you can see that you're coming up."
After she saw that she was coming up, she started to calm down. I think she's so afraid she is going to keep dropping low so just seeing that she was rising helped. Although, she continued to shake and say she was cold. Poor thing! :( After she ate, she sat on the couch bundled in a blanket. She started to cry again and I asked her what was wrong? She wanted to test again to make sure she was above 80. She pricked her finger ...no blood. So she tried again...and got a double dose! LOL!
We both giggled since she had her choice of which finger to test. She'd come up nicely....
But she was completely wiped out!
She went right to sleep on the couch and she's been asleep for over an hour now :( Damn diabetes! It's completely robbed her of her day because she'll spend the rest of the day playing "catch up" to gain her strength back.
Just more proof that diabetes is so unpredictable and you can be having a great day and all of a sudden it can sweep you off your feet and you begin your roller coaster ride. It's now 1:10pm and I just tested her and she's bounced up to a 255....and STILL asleep!
