Reminders...

As I sit here watching my sweet 11 year old son lie in my bed, clutching his Build-a-bear, and feeling horribly sick to his stomach... I am reminded about how quickly things can change.

Just yesterday, we were feeling somewhat on top of things. With our 3 month report card results coming in at a consistent(<-- word used by the doc) 6.7, we went on with out normal routine. Justin happened not to go to camp today because he went to his math tutor... guess its a good thing since Leighanna comes into the room while I'm working to tell me Justin is throwing up and not feeling good at all.

WHAT?
-"What's his bg?"
-"377"
-"have him come here"

In between calls I tell a poor pitiful looking Justin, who is literally dragging himself like a sloth, to go test his ketones and come back. ~large~

*sigh*




Were going to do this Reyna style... A day in the life of large ketones and site changes in between calls and pre-authorizing a colonoscopy. And feeling thankful that I work from home to do it.

Now if only I had her ab's.

Highs are hard enough without the ketones adding their own version of nastiness!

So glad you were able to be at home to work double time as a pancreas!
