I just wanted to thank everyone for their comments. I truly appreciate all your advice and prayers.
I should have explained that one of the reasons we don't want to change insulin is because things are going so well right now. Except for a few blips due to illness, Elise's BG numbers have been really good. And for the first time I feel like I have a handle on things.
Going back to square one really frightens me. With NPH, I know what I'm doing. I have an understanding of how the insulin works. Switching means starting over and the memory of those first months are burned in my brain with such intensity, I actually start feeling sick to my stomach thinking about it.
I know that you guys all know what I'm talking about. Trying to find the dose that works and the completely crazy numbers that follow until you do. It's all too fresh for me to want to go back and do it again this soon.
And like I said before, what we're doing now is working and I'm enjoying that wee bit of normalcy in our lives. I think if we were not having good numbers on the NPH, I would be more open to change.
As for the pump, I just don't feel ready for it. One day; but not right now.
Elise does seem to be feeling better; she woke up with a BG if 155, but on a whim I checked for ketones and she was at .8. Weird. They were gone by 10:45, so I have no idea what that was about. Can you have a relatively normal BG and ketones at the same time?
