-Sneaky tummy bugs are TOUGH! When Elise is low, she says her tummy hurts. When we were having all those lows earlier this month, Elise's BG was constantly diving into the 40s, she she was saying her tummy hurt ALL THE TIME. I just chalked it up to her being low, when I should have been looking at the other signs like the fact that she never wanted to eat. I had the same bug the next week and it sucked. Live and learn, right?
-So many of you commented on this post that when I freak out, it makes them feel normal. Which in turn, makes ME feel normal! So I will continue my freaking-out ways. You know, for the betterment of the DOC. At least, that's what I'll keep telling myself.
-We can do pizza and a cookie cake right after a pump change and still ROCK IT! Elise went to a birthday party on Saturday, and just before we left we realized we had to change her pump. Nooooooo! I knew what was on the menu and that it probably spelled a long night ahead. But we did a pre-change bolus, a temp basal and had her sitting at 98 before bed. Woo to the hoo!
-Pump change on Chick-fil-a days, however, are not so good.
