Well the basal results are in: Wednesdays results were the total opposite of last weeks. So....no changes made. I'll revisit this later.
Moving on...at church last night, they had surprise ice cream sundaes. Yay! Uh...not so much.
Tell me: Why must everything be celebrated with a cupcake, pizza, or ice cream? People! It's hard on a d-mom!
Anyway, pizza and ice cream are the 2 foods that really do cause Matthew trouble. Pizza, we pretty much have figured out, but having it at night is NOT good.
Ice cream is another story. We rarely have it because the fat always causes Matthew's BG to shoot up at 4 hours. Instead, we'll go to those fat-free frozen yogurt places around town and the BG is awesome.
But the surprise ice cream was not fat-free. Nonetheless, we totally rocked it! At 4 hours, he did go up to 183 (so much better than the 200s/300s we've seen following ice cream) and then he came down.
The one thing that does bother me?
Events like last night remind me that while I am doing okay, I'm still mourning the loss of Matthew's freedom.
Dealing with diabetes is one thing. Managing the emotions that go along with it? That's another story.
