Here’s what our war against type 1 diabetes looks like some mornings:
This was a recent night that started with persistent high blood sugars around dinner time. I changed Benny’s inset at bedtime and did the every two hour check for a while. Brought him down around 3am. I was very happy we didn’t get the usual bottom-out low.
Luckily, this doesn’t happen very often. Also, Benny is my neat kid and I had to warn him not to clean up before I took this picture! He doesn’t remember much of what happens on these overnight checks and he never understands why I always leave a mess. Collateral damage, kid.
