Life is good, but I'm tired and a little defeated. I'm not even sure why. This D-life is tough. Just when you think you have one thing figured out, something else rears its ugly head.
Matthew's late night highs are better. I spoke with his CDE yesterday and I'm going to keep playing around with the nighttime snack ratios. If I can't seem to find a ratio that works consistently, then we're going to try splitting the Lantus.
The problem with working on the ratios is that you have to check Matthew constantly from 8-11:15ish. (He often drops before he goes high.) It's truly exhausting and I'm going through test strips like crazy!!
Going to bed that late, getting up at 3 to check him and then rising at 7 is taking a toll on me. I just need my sleep. I guess I need to get back into trying to catch a nap, but it's summer and we want to have fun.
I want a CGM (Continous Glucose Monitor) so bad!!! I talked with the CDE about it and she said it would certainly give us good info right now....we could take a quick peek and think "okay, he's steady...." or "he's dropping fast..."
It's definitely on the list of things to discuss at his next appointment. My understanding is that the doctor will let us get it....and then it would just be working with our insurance company to figure out the cost. It it's not one battle, its another....
In the meantime, I'll just keep working on ratios and be thankful that this issue is getting better.
