When I went to bed that night, I forgot to turn the receiver in our room up. We missed Eileen alerting us to a LOW alarm... the one that beeps when she's below 55. We only know this because when Mattias woke us up for his 2:30 feeding, Fred and I heard Eileen loudly beeping like crazy.
When I realized what I had done, we ran into Elise's room, only to see the LOW 55 screen. When we cleared the alert, we saw that the low had occurred about an hour before and now Eileen was showing us the ???. When we checked Elise's BG, a finger poked showed her at 250. As Eileen finally came back up, we saw the number 310 with an arrow up.
I felt awful; like I had been kicked in the stomach. I couldn't believe I had forgotten something so simple. After I beat myself up for a good amount of time, I turned my attention to what I was thankful for.
That Elise's liver kicked in and possibly saved her life. I know full well what could have happened, and it takes my breath away if I think about it too much. So thank you, Elise's liver... I'm glad that you take your job seriously.
What I'd like to know is; what happened to Lenny and Harold?
