Whenever he's happy/excited, his BS always goes up. So.....I give him a little more insulin to counteract that. BUT.......what if he doesn't do what I expect? Sometimes I'm right and his numbers are great. Other times I'm wrong and he goes low. The guessing game is tough.
Today was Matthew's piano recital. Now, if I was a normal mom, I would have worried about his song. But no.....all I was thinking was....hmmmmm....will he be stressed and go high? He'll be sitting without activity and that could also make him go high.
But....if I give him extra insulin and he doesn't get too excited, he's going to go low right in the middle of the recital. Hmmmm....what to do.....
In the end, I gave him more insulin, made sure he had a Starburst in his pocket, and then spent the next 2 hours semi-hoping he'd be a little nervous and stressed. HOW SAD IS THAT?! LOL
Turns out I won this guessing game and his BS stayed in range. Best of all.....Matthew did a great job playing March Militaire AND said he had fun!
