Today we went to a local fair that we have been going to since we moved to the area. It's close by, family friendly, and FREE if you go before 5 pm on Friday. This was the first time since Elise's dx that we decided to partake of the fair fare; a risky venture to be sure. There were so many unknown carb factors, my head nearly exploded.
So here is how we fared at the fair:
BG at dinnertime: 259 (blurgh - she was a wee bit excited)
Food eaten by Elise: 1 corn on the cob, 1 hotdog, 1 fruit kabob with strawberry and banana; covered in white and milk chocolate, 1/3 of a smoked turkey leg, 4 huge handfuls of cotton candy, 1 small handful of caramel corn, 1 sip of lemonade.
Approximate amount of carbs: I actually stopped counting after the fruit kabob.
Amount of insulin for that carbfest: 2 units u-50, 1 unit u-20 (for her correction).
BG at bedtime: 121
My elation level at how it all worked out (using MDI, no less): through the freaking ROOF!
Of course, now that I've been all braggy-braggerton about it, we'll probably be up all night dealing with some BG craziness. Oh well, I'm going to savour it while it lasts.
