Rewind about seven hours ago. I'm chatting with the undisputed champ of the diabetes world, Meri, when she asked me how Elise's numbers have been.
I told her that it looked like things were stabilizing, and we had seen a trend towards some higher numbers. My thinking was Elise had gone through the mother-of-all growth spurts during the month of December and it made her BG totally freak out.
But lately all her numbers seemed to be following a trend, so we were pretty sure it was all over.
Until tonight. Check THIS out:
7:30 pm - 168
At 8:15 pm we give her her night time N.
8:45 pm - 15g carb snack plus nursing
9:30 pm - she asks for water, and some banana. BG is 48 (huh?) We give her 10g.
9:45 pm - BG is 57
10:00 pm - 62. We decide to give her 5g more.
10:15 pm - 68
10:30 pm - 76. Again, we decide to give her 5g more.
At this point, it is now way, way past Elise's bedtime, although she is being such a trooper about it and not complaining at all. So we just put her to bed with a BG of 76, knowing that in about an hour, the N should start to peak. Of course we choose tonight to up her dose by .5 because she had been waking up in the mid-200s.
I'm just wondering if at some point we're going to see a major BG spike because of the 20g extra carbs we gave her. Better that than crashing low I suppose.
Going to be a long night.
Edited to add: 11:30 pm - 111. Groan.
