I was so caught up in my running out of gas drama that I forgot to post what the doctor said about Elise's rash. It looks like it's hives caused by an allergic reaction. What I've been noticing is that is gets worse when Elise is either in the sun or in the heat (can;t figure out which yet). Great, my child is allergic to either the heat or sun and we live in Texas where it's been 100 degrees plus for like 2 weeks now.
She also said that the napping issues could be tied to Elise's separation anxiety which is very age appropriate right now.
Wednesday hasn't started off so great as Elise woke up at 2:30 with a BG of 56. We gave her 8g of carbs and she woke up with a BG of 239 and .9 ketones. I didn't get a whole lot of sleep because I was up all night coughing, and my husband left at 4:30 this morning to go to the airport to fly to NYC until Friday.
When I did get out of bed to wake Elise up this morning I found that I had no voice. Zip, zero, nada. The only way I can make any sound at all is to whisper. Which was wonderful because I needed to call Elise's endo and try to figure out why she's waking up with ketones every morning. The poor lady had to listen to me whisper for about 20 minutes! But the good news is we've got an action plan and I finally feel like I have some answers.
But the good news is I still have a smile on my face and Elise is in a pretty good mood. Mostly because she thinks my "new" voice is hilarious!
