Are you tired of all this yet?

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!


  1. I'll never tire of your posts, Joanne! :) I always enjoy write as though you are speaking! Sorry you lost your voice :(- hope you get to feeling better soon!

  2. Oh man. Gee whiz. Holy crap! I need to never ever skip reading for a few days. I am so sorry you've had such a bad week. I think about you as I drive by (relatively near :) your house to and from work every day! Wish I had pulled over and been all "where do I start, what can I do?" Like I could do anything, but still.

    If I feel this helpless, I can't begin to imagine how helpless you feel. Hang in there. Whatever we need to do to keep you sane we will :)
