Yesterday, we arrived in Ft Nelson, British Columbia after a long 20 hours in the car. Jada had been sleeping- before she fell asleep I checked her and she was 99. I gave her about 3/4 of a granola bar (I think the whole bar had about 30 grams of carbs)- I actually thought I was giving her too much, but wanted to be safe as we've had some lows that were too low. She slept for a couple of hours and woke up when we arrived here at our hotel. We unloaded, Jeff took a cat nap and then it was time to go swimming. The kids were excited because the pool has a waterslide. Naturally- I checked Jada before swimming and she was !!!29!!! I nearly freaked out- I couldn't believe she was walking and talking like nothing was wrong. I gave her 3 glucose tabs and as she began to eat, the effect of the low began to set in. I was holding her and she could barely lift her head up and kept telling me that she was tired and wanted to go to sleep. I kept talking to her and after about 5 minutes, she was doing better. After ten minutes, I checked her again- good ole' rebound effect- 435! :) We went ahead and went swimming, but she continued to drop steadily and by the time supper came around, she didn't need a shot because she was around 100. I even had to wake her up at midight to have a snack because she was 105 and she still woke up at 60 this morning. Oh- and before that scary afternoon low- she hadn't had any fast acting insulin since breakfast. Any suggestions? Now- I will expect some lows today with all of the swimming activity she's had and am prepared to feed her the extra carbs. The other lows don't make a lot of sense to me as she has done nothing but sit in a vehicle almost constantly the last 3 days.
Well- I'm glad to have got that off my chest. The hotel we are staying at has pretty sketchy internet service and I hadn't been able to open up blogger until a few minutes ago. I have been unable to catch up on everyone's blogs this week and I really feel like I've missed out. So- hopefully, I'll get a little reading in before we have to check out.
