The good things in this case being Elise's numbers. During the past 2+ months, her numbers have been nothing short of phenomenal. Okay, her daytime numbers... I think I've given up on ever figuring out what the heck goes on in her little body at night.
Oh, but her numbers during the day were ever-so-wonderful. I was so in love with those numbers, that if it wasn't for Fred, I would have run off and married those numbers.
But I'm off chasing rabbits again.
Anyway, yesterday I noticed her numbers trending higher. Like high 200s. Very out-of-place for her. Plus, she did not want to eat. And at 11:00 last night she woke up inconsolable with a fever of 101, BG of 269, but no ketones. I tried to calm her down for almost an hour, then gave her some Tylenol because she seemed to be in some pain.
At the 3:30 check, she was 360 (YIKES), and .5 ketones. Hmmm, something definitely was going on. When she woke up this morning, her fever was gone, and she declared herself to be "feeling much better". Yeah, I hear sleeping will do that for ya. Her BG was still high at 269 and ketones were .4, not bad, considering.
But something was eating away at my gut, so I made an appointment for her anyway. Dx... strep throat. UGH, poor little girl! Between the illness and the antibiotics, I've resigned myself to the fact that our run of good numbers are over for now. But mark my words, I will get them back!
I'm too in love to give up that easily!
