I let her sleep, and when she woke up I checked her temp. It was 100.8. Sugar? A low-ish 95. Weird. On a hunch I checked for ketones. Large. Uh-oh. Not good. I knew that even non-D people can spill ketones when they are sick, so a call to the pedi was in order. But should I call her endo first, or her pedi? Meanwhile, Elise is shrieking in my arms.
To make a very loooong story short, the pedi fit us in within a hour of my call, and determined that it was a viral infection. What followed was 5 or 6 days of pure hell. Sick babies are hard, but D makes it even tougher. She didn't want to eat, her sugar was sky-high, she had large ketones, and one day her fever even hit 104. She would wake up sometimes 8 times a night because she was so congested she could hardly breathe.
But, we made it. She's not completely well yet, but you can tell she's getting there. I had been so scared of going through our first sickness, and it was every bit as hard as I thought it would be.
But now, at least I (somewhat) know what to expect.
