The connection

I woke up; my heart pounding and sweat just pouring off of me.  As my eyes adjusted to the dim light of the bedroom, I realized that it had just been a dream; the shakiness, feeling dizzy, my CGM buzzing a low blood sugar and the number on the monitor coming in at 29.

This had happened before; dreams where I was the one with diabetes and I was experiencing a low blood sugar.  It always amazes me how vivid and real the symptoms are.  

In my dream I was at work, and I was struggling to tell my co-workers what was wrong. I was on the verge of passing out and I managed to spit the words, "my blood sugar..." out, when they all came running.

That's when I awoke to the dexcom screaming about a LOW that my daughter was experiencing right at that moment.  I ran into her room, and the check turned up a 56.

This is also not the first time I've had dreams about being low, only to awake and find that Elise actually is.

Once again, I am amazed by motherhood.


  1. When hubby's CGM is beeping at night, I start dreaming about beeps lol Our dreams are telling us to wake up and help them :)

  2. Your simply one amazing Momma! xoxo

  3. I am a firm believer in the realness of dreams.

  4. I have had similar experiences where there are background voices in my dreams telling me to wake up and check Ben ... And every time this has happened Ben has been low ... I like to think I have a special diabetes angel watching out for Ben and who can talk to me in my dreams :)

  5. That is amazing mother's intuition!!!!!!!!! That is a beautiful picture of you and Elise.

  6. Truly an amazing bond! Love this post...cute pic too!
