Elise was in her room, reading.
I was in another room, nursing Mattias.
I checked Elise before I started nursing. 99 and holding steady on the CGM. It's almost dinner time and that's a completely normal number for her at this time.
10 minutes later... "beep, beep, beep", says the dexcom.
"Elise?" I ask. No answer. Crap.
"ELISE?" I bellow. Silence. Crap-on-a-stick.
"ELISE! ELISE! ELISE!" Nothing. CRAP CRAP CRAP.
Off comes a very hungry and protesting Mattias. I put him in his crib and run down the hall to find Elise asleep.
Or is she?
CGM says 90 steady. Meter says 134. Mom says a silent prayer of thanks.
A Dexcom beeping and silence from your child; two of the scariest sounds in the world.
