Steady Eddie

I had to increase Matthew's overnight basal settings. 

Let me say right up front that I HATE to increase his nighttime insulin.  Hate it, hate it, hate it!

This fear sets in that maybe we're giving too much....he's going to drop.....we'll miss it.  It's a fear no one understands unless you live it.

Anyway, fortunately, it was very clear that I really did need to increase it.  And you gotta do what you gotta do.

So......with great courage, I grabbed that PDM and programed in higher rates.  Deep breath.

I made the change on Thursday night.  Here are his numbers from overnight Friday.

10P  131
2A   132
5A   132
8A   130

Steady Eddie. 

I can't believe it, but I'm doing the dance of joy!

Great job! I am with you on night time insulin, I have a huge fear of giving too much and not catching it.
