One thing I hate about diabetes.....you can do everything right and it still goes wrong.
We just celebrated Matthew's birthday. Full of pizza, cupcakes, running around, excitement....and yet, we rocked the BG! It was a great day.
A little before bedtime, Matthew's BG was 124. Not bad, but we still gave him 2 PB crackers for a little boost. He gradually (and I mean gradually!) made his way to bed.
Kevin and I settled down to watch a little TV, feeling confident that Matthew was okay. We planned to check him in an hour before we went to bed.
But then Matthew called down that he felt low. Really low.
He was 52.
And we were not going to check him for another hour.
It took our breath away.
Thankfully, he was still awake and felt it because lows never wake him.
Kevin and I were both pretty shaken up. It was a scary way to end his birthday and yet, we're so grateful that it did end that way and he's okay.
Now we just need to work on getting a CGM. Matthew is totally against it, but Kevin and I really can't take this anymore. This is the 3rd time something like this has happened.
We don't want to lose him to diabetes.
