Hero of the Day Award

First.....a big thank you to all the wonderful d-moms who commented yesterday! Your support means the world to me! It's so great to have encouragement from other moms fighting the same battles.

Now.......on to the good stuff. The Hero of the Day Award goes to........drumroll please.......


Yesterday, she suggested giving Matthew a snack with insulin at bedtime....around 8 o'clock. The idea being that the active insulin might "tie him over" until the Lantus kicks in.

This is similiar to what one nurse suggested. (I've talked with 4 of them about this!) The nurse said we could try having dinner a little later. have that active insulin working around the time he's rising. But Matthew really needs to eat by 6 or so.

Anyway.....we tried a snack at 8pm and IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY!

Yea! Woo Hoo! Go Crazy Pancreas!

Matthew's BS still rose a tiny bit but he leveled out and came in at 98 this morning. FANTASTIC!

Of course, you know how diabetes is....I'll have to test this for a few days to make sure.....but I think it's going to work.

And Matthew doesn't mind the extra shot since he gets a snack. Good thing, too, since he still needs to put on some weight.

What a great way to end the week! :)
