All through last week we had been seeing higher and higher numbers with Elise and it they hit a peak this weekend. All we saw on Saturday and Sunday were numbers mostly in the 300-400 range. Nothing we did worked. We were even giving her 3 extra units of DH at meal times and even then her numbers would only come down to the mid to high 200s.
Figuring we were out of our element, we emailed our numbers to the Endo on Sunday night, asking for help. We never heard back Monday, which is odd. They usually get back to us pretty quickly. Then this morning there was an email in my inbox saying, "We offer review of blood glucose logs to our families on Wednesdays. Please re-send your updated records at that time."
Ugh... sounds like a form-letter response to me. Did they even read our logs? We are well aware that the day to email logs for review is Wednesday, but we stopped weekly emails about 3 months ago; only emailing when we have an issue.
Like we did this weekend. It has always been the case that if we needed help we were free to email our logs whenever. I just hate the overall "snottiness" of this response and it's one of the reasons I hate dealing with such a big practice. I like Elise's doc, but I feel like we're just a number to the CDEs and it makes me mad.
We're real, live, breathing people with a 22-month old that had been dealing with high BG numbers for quite a few days. We tried what we knew and it didn't work. So we reached out to the "experts" for help. And they tell us we need to wait until it's convenient for them.
I am so, so ticked right now. I've decided to wait until I calm down a bit to call them up and yell.
Don't they know you should never make a red-head mad?
