I have always given 100% to Matthew's diabetes. Always.
But not last night.
Backstory: I'm recovering from a cold that has really taken its toll. I feel so run-down. Kevin has graciously done overnights for the past week, but last night I was on-call. (Because I am feeling better and now Kevin is coming down with it.)
Anyway, at 2am, Matthew was 191. We always correct a number that high. So I'm staring at the meter thinking....I really should give a correction. But if I correct him, I'm going to have to check at 4am. Then I'm up at 6am....I can't do it! I can't!
Then a brilliant idea hit me. (Thank you, Lord!)
Maybe I can say this is a basal test! It's not like he's 250....It really would be good to know if he goes up from here right? AND...tomorrow isn't a school day for him, if he wakes a little high...I'll fix it.
So I went back to bed. No correction.
I felt a little guilty for not giving 100% for Matthew.
But it kind of felt good, too. I was giving me 100%.
I got up around 6am, he was 177. I gave a correction and he was good to go by breakfast.
Now....if I could only determine to give myself 100% when trying to drop 30 pounds....
(But I think this proves that I'm learning.....)
