Scary low at school and no one noticed
Oscar had a severe low at school today that he didn't remember until he got home. He said it was the worst he had ever felt. He remembers feeling his pump vibrate and testing - don't know what it was because he left that tester at school - he knows he had a juice and thinks he had rockets too because he saw them scattered on the floor as he was leaving school and wondered how they got there. It wasn't until he got home that it started coming back to him. He says he couldn't hear anything and everything was blurry. Thank God for his sensor. No one noticed anything wrong. I've emailed his teacher but I don't know that we could do anything different to prevent this from happening again and getting him help sooner? He said he couldn't tell the teacher because "his brain wouldn't work" and by the time it did work he didn't remember anything.
Has anyone else's child experienced this kind of blackout? I should probably lower his basal's and carb ratios for a few days?
