Hello Fabulous Blogger Friends! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
We had a fantastic holiday. Very different from years past because no grandparents came to visit, but was a good Christmas nonetheless.
On the BG front, however, quite a different story.
It all started Christmas Eve night. Matthew's BG dropped all night long. I mean every single hour I was up checking that child. Two juice boxes later, and after lots of temporary basals, he woke up around 120. It was a long, rough night.
But when your child wakes up after a night like that, you are so very grateful to the Lord. I couldn't do this without Him! It's frightening to think what would have happened without our checking.
And what did happen? Who knows? Good 'ole diabetes. We hadn't changed a thing. Did the growth spurt end? One would think. But.....
On Christmas night, I hadn't lowered basals yet (waiting for the 2 day pattern) and he ROSE over 100 points. Really? Really. It was Kevin's night and he watched him like a hawk. We were stunned.
Sidenote: Despite the holiday, he didn't have any weird food that we haven't dealt with before. This is merely the "fun" of diabetes. Because.....
Last night he dropped again. I was up every single hour. More juice. More aggressive temp basals. I finally got him up by 4am.
What a crazy few days, but I'm so thankful for the privilege of taking care of Matthew. It's always a blessing, despite the occasional exhaustion.
And yes! I'm lowering the basals today. This pancreas needs a rest!
