I have been sitting here in "honeymoon land" with my reality check around the corner just waiting to smack me!
What does that mean?? Well, I have mentioned before that Justin is still in the honeymoon stage~ right? So I have been reading all of these blogs talking about 4 or 5 shots a day and how fellow D moms are setting alarms for every couple hours to check bg's at night. For months, I have been thinking... wow~ I am glad I don't have to get up in the middle of the night... And 5 SHOTS?? Holy insulin batman!
Besides the numbers during school, I would say I have had it easy. I couldn't even complain about our measly 2 shots a day. NOW... I think our time is coming. For the past few weeks, I have found myself setting the alarm for a night time check and one of the questions on my Endo list will be "shall we add in a lunch time dose?
I hate to do that to Justin, but I don't know what else to do. The problem is the time he eats lunch at school. They are literally the LAST class to go to lunch... by this time he's about 6 1/2 hours into his Humulin. I don't give him a ton of food for lunch, but he has to eat.
What sucks is that we have to feed him a half a sandwich between 8 and 8:30 and then a snack around 10:30 or he drops into the 40's(one time 39). He usually has great numbers right before lunch (under 100), but after... upper 300's for several hours after.
I guess it will straighten out soon... ~right?
