FLAT LINE...

Why hello again! Have you been waiting?
For what you ask? Well... part 2 of this post.
You remember... spinning bat game. Support-less tatas. Good times!


As I said... It had been a strange week for sure. I guess I am a bit tired as I did not wake up to check on him at 3am the next morning. When I finally got up and went in Justin's room... this is what I saw
HOLY SHIT!! DID YOU SEE THAT LINE?? THE FLAT ONE?? THE ONE THAT HAS BEEN FLAT FOR A GOOD 2 HOURS??

I have NEVER ran up a step ladder so fast in all my life. I am 100% positive that I stopped breathing. I GRABBED Justin as if I was waking him up because of a fire.


You can not possibly know the feeling that came over me when he popped up. It is far beyond the feeling of relief when you see their chest rise or simple see movement while they sleep.

3 days that week that Justin went low in the morning before school. The second time was pretty drama free compared to the one I posted about the other day. We were walking to the bus stop(support in tact) and I had him check for me(mama's intuition) and he was 68. Not a panic mode number... so I gave him a couple glucose tabs and sent him off.

Friday was the worst of the three, I was making his lunch. Justin was sitting at the table and he had just finished his breakfast. I start again with the same old tune, but this time was a little different. He didn't budge as my voice raised... I automatically start transporting the meter to the table and tell him to check.

What does he do??? He gets up and lays on the couch... WHAT??

I end up going over and checking him myself... 35 How can this be?? He JUST ate. All this made me about as confused as Oakley's ears...
just don't know which way to go!!
I was 45 minutes late to work this day. Good thing they like me over there :) I decided the bus was really NOT a good idea. I got Justin all settled an loaded with juice before I drove him to school.

I ended up raising his I:C ratio again and I have been letting him eat a little before I bolus.  

There was a little less excitement this week on the D front. Probably because I don't have time to pay attention to it. I am sure D will make up for his good behavior soon :)

Have a great weekend.

OMG! That flat line feels much worse than the HIGH flat line! I think *I* stopped breathing when I saw that picture!

I hope the changes are working and you don't wake up to THAT again!

Holy Crap! A flat line THERE is not a good thing! Here's to some drama free days ahead!

I'm pretty sure I would stop breathing too if I saw that on Dexie when I went up to get Audrey in the morning. I am praying you get some day's without so many lows!! ((hugs))

Love Oakley's confused ears...and are you sure Justin and Joe aren't riding some kind of "sugar train.." or shall we say "sugar-less train" together. Same over here...I have backed off bigtime on his breakfast I:C ratio...he is requiring 30-40% less insulin a day...that is a shit-load. Unfortunately, I know this song and dance a little too well and it isn't a quick fix. LOVE. LOVE. to you and Justin.

Oh wow... I would have stopped breathing if I had seen that flat line. How scary. I hope you figure out what's going on soon.

BTW, LOVE Oakley's ears... how cute is he?

Meri said...

Ummm...I almost lost it when I saw that line. Holy crap. I hate that feeling. More than anything...THAT is the worst of all feelings.

If he is low RIGHT after eating breakfast, maybe lower the basal at 5:00am? I don't know, I'm talking out my butt...you're on top of this. I'm just programmed to start problem solving! Love you!

Amanda said...

Lora! Good grief! You deserve a break lady! My stomach is still turning just thinking about the picture of his dexcom. Sending prayers and good BG wishes your way!
