Matthew started getting sick yesterday and sadly, he has all the fun stuff: vomiting overnight....fever.....now diarrhea.
He had moderate ketones this morning, but his BS was only 145. He felt really lousy. I think it was all the ketones making him feel so bad. I called his CDE and she helped me come up with a plan. Basically just eating and drinking.....assuming he could keep it all down.
I had no idea how tough it would be to figure out sick-day stuff. I mean.....with shots....I can't give him insulin for 1 or 2 crackers. But he has to eat and he has to have insulin. Hmmmm...
I finally convinced him to try a slice of toast and some gatorade, but I didn't give him the insulin until I was sure he'd keep it down. Fortunately, he did.
Of course, then the diarrhea started and he went low. I guess it'll be this way until everything actually stays in him??
Good news though....ketones are now negative (we'll keep checking) and he's a happy camper parked in front of the TV.
Gotta be thankful for the little things.....that are actually big things. : )
