And she's off!




Today Diabetes decided to give me the big ol' double middle finger.  I woke up to find a nice 235 staring back at me on the meter.  Of course on all the days leading up to this one she had been waking up in range.

But never mind that.  There is a reason I wake up super early... So I can catch these high BGs, pre-bolus, and make sure she's on her way down before breakfast. All in plenty of time to get her off to school.

So that's just what I did.  Except...

Except THIS morning I received a Bolus Interuptus in the form of a shrieking pod.  The PDM tells me all but .05 was delivered, but that's what it ALWAYS says.  I think the PDM likes to lie sometimes.

But all is well.  The pod was changed, breakfast consumed, and one very happy girl got on the bus and made her way to first grade

All the while, I know she's doing okay.  

We've come a long way, baby.

    1. Not too often, surprisingly! Mostly at key times of the day like 2 hours after breakfast, before lunch/recess, after specials or before bus. We are so lucky to have an amazing nurse who has it all under control.

  3. That same amount is always displayed when our pod alarms during a bolus. Thanks for blogging. I enjoy reading your post!

    1. I have trouble believing that ALL failures happen with only .05 left.

      Something to ask when I call this pod in!

  4. So, so, so tempted to get my 1st grader set up on the Cloud, but I love that he wears his Dex in a little pocket in his shirt all day and hate the idea of him having to carry around a box/kit to hold it and the phone etc. Ugh. What is Elise carrying hers in?

    1. Elise's teacher wears the regular dex in a bag attached to a strap around her neck (from Tallygear), and then the rig with a second dex sits with her diabetes bag in a book bag that follows her from her classes to lunch, recess etc. The bag usually sits up by the teacher's desk, so she's always being picked up, except at recess... there is no containing that girl!

  5. Not the point of the post but I love her little dress almost as much as I love Nightscout!

  6. Hope she had a great first week in first grade! She sure is one adorable first grader! Wish we had a cooperative boy here who would agree to all the technology but we are still doing the same old same old shot routine...maybe one day he will change his mind! Think of you often friend. xoxo

  7. So jealous... I wish I had a CGM... I wish I was set up with NightScout! I wish it was my first day of grade 1 again... (BTW: I'm a 37y/o T1D, living on my own managing on my own since I was diagnosed more than 10 years ago. - It would be so nice to give my Mom & Dad the reassurance of knowing I'm OK, & me the safety net of knowing that they can check up on me & help out when needed.)
