Feeling Better and Crazy Numbers

Jada made it through yesterday with no major issues.  She actually ran around all morning like nothing was wrong and then crashed on me in the afternoon!  She fell asleep while I was holding her and I just couldn't bring myself to lay her in bed- the little princess slept for more than two hours on my lap!  Yes- I enjoyed it and took a little nap myself!  The rest of the day, Jada was pretty low key, but didn't spike another fever.  Hopefully, she won't spread the love to her siblings! :)
Today, her numbers have been swinging back and forth like crazy!  As high as 350 to as low as (2 hours later) 43.  I treated her with 2 glucose tabs and 15 minutes later she was 245!  Then, an hour and a half later- she was down to 65.    It's been one of those crazy days of just keeping a close eye on her.  She's feeling fine- I just wonder if her being sick yesterday have just messed things up for a little bit.

I'm glad she's feeling better! I hope her BG levels out soon.

Wow I feel your frustration. I hope you don't mind if I follow your blog. My dd Sydney is Type 1. She is five and was diagnosed a year ago. It is always nice to connect with parents who go through and know what it's like to parent a sweet kido with diabetes. Sorry about Jada's sick day. We have just gotten over that too. Syd was spilling ketones and her sugars were all over the place as well. Hope she feels better soon and good job enjoying the snuggle time. :-)

Glad to hear she is doing better. I always find sick days throw my BG outta wack for a few days...

These poor kiddos have enough to deal with, then BAM they're sick! At least she's feeling a bit better. Take it easy and keep up the great mommy job!
