Finally after a few days, Kacey is back in range! It took a new site change and sugar checks every 2 hours and dosing to get her down...but we did it! She was a 136 at 2am this morning and then a 154 at 6am. It was really nice to wake her up and start the day with a smile. She got up out of bed...got dressed and made her own breakfast before I ever got myself ready. She was in such a great mood and she continued to hold steady through the day :)
I've noticed that a lot of the kids are running high and then Cara and my friend Tracy posted about their crazy highs on my Facebook and it made me really start thinking. It seems like Kacey is high when many others are high and then when we're battling lows, so are others. I blamed the moon on Cara's Facebook! Heehee! I hope all of them start feeling better. Cold season is in full swing!
***Moronic Mommy Moment***
Kacey usually packs her own lunch and I check behind her and usually stuff an "I love you!" note in there. This morning we were running behind and she packed up her backpack and I never checked her lunchbox. She got to school and when snacktime rolled around, she went into panic mode...LOL! She pulled her lunchbox out to get her snack and it was EMPTY! She'd forgotten to pack her lunch and this Moron Mommy forgot to check behind her! BUT...she knew that I'd put a basket of food in the closet in the nurses office. She had water, chips, crackers, cookies but I also have other things for lows. So she went to the nurse, gathered things for lunch and never even had to call me! So...just an idea for those other Moms out there that are always rushing around...take a container with extra stuff and stash it in the nurses office on days like these :)
I also wanted to let the gentleman that made the rude comment to my McDonald's post know...I responded to you and from now on if you can't say something nice on here please don't respond to my posts. I am not a doctor, I am not an expert, but the one thing that I am is a RESPONSIBLE and SENSATIVE parent that is controlling this uncontrollable disease the best way I possibly can. Oh, and BTW, I will continue to let my child eat McDonald's :) Thank you!
