I thought I'd post a little update just so people didn't think I was dead or something... with the way life has been going lately, it's not a stretch!
After talking with the CDE yesterday, we decided to give Elise more carbs for her bedtime snack. A nutritionist from the office was supposed to call and work with me on how much to give Elise, but she never did. Argh. So I ended up just picking a number and gave her 14g with a BG of 100 and 2.5 N. I was a little nervous about it making her BG skyrocket (Elise gets 15-20 g of carbs for breakfast and she gets 8 units of DH for that), but it wasn't too bad. She was 278 at 11:15, and 244 at 2:30, waking up at 163. Not too bad!
Unfortunately, the nutritionist didn't call today either, and when Elise had a bedtime BG of 278, I didn't know what to do. The CDE was adamant that Elise needs more carbs than we're giving her (which is about 5g) at bedtime. I'm a little confused about this, but it was so hard talking to her and getting her to understand my questions because I had no voice!
Today I woke up with zero speaking ability as well, so I didn't even try to call the endo's office for clarification. Not being able to talk is so frustrating, and I realize that I totally take my voice for granted.
Hopefully tomorrow I'll be a little more vocal and get my questions answered.
