-When two of your prescriptions look very similar, don't make the mistake of putting them near each other. Especially when one of them knocks you out. I accidentally took a Phenergan instead of my Synthroid the other day, and didn't realize it until an hour later when I started to feel woozy. I know I didn't go to sleep, but I have no memory of what I DID do that morning, because somehow, Elise ended up at 32 by lunchtime. She usually needs a small, partially covered snack in the morning, and I don't know if I just forgot to feed her, or if I bolused her AND forgot to feed her. In any event, I felt pretty crappy about it. Sleepy, but crappy.
-Costco cake is of the devil when it comes to Elise's BG. Usually she can eat cake with little to no problem. Except for Costco cake. I don't know what they put in it, but it causes her to go high about three hours after eating, AND to stay there, despite any rage-bolusing I do.We've had several examples in the last month since both kids had Costco cakes for their birthday, we just went to a party where they served it, and they also had it at out Neighbourhood Night Out party this week. This last time I tried an extended bolus (30/70 over 3 hours), and it was pretty successful, but I think I need to extend it even longer.
|Evil, evil Costco cakes. Yes, each of my kids got a birthday cake. Their birthdays are only 3 days apart, so we have a combined party. Somehow we ended up with 70 people RSVP-ing yes. It was crazy, yo.|
