Well......we did it!
Matthew had a birthday party yesterday and we totally ROCKED on the cake! Woo Hoo!
It worked out where I could give him the insulin early, so I gave him 2 units up front. For Matthew right now, that equals 63 carbs.
Once the cupcakes and ice cream were served, I could get a handle on the size and make some quick calculations. They both came to 50 carbs. I added in a few teddy grahams and he was good to go.
Sidenote: Matthew was really surprised when the ice cream was served. We had only talked about cake and he thought he couldn't have the ice cream. He was completely thrilled when I said I had already figured that in. Definitely a good Mommy moment!
Anyway, I checked him 2 hours later, hoping and praying he'd be between 140 and 180. The number was......drumroll please.......
I am so grateful that God is getting us through those situations where you just have to make your best guess.
Matthew and I decided God must be a big fan of cake and ice cream. : )
