So I changed my DDs pod late in the evening. It's only the second time to change the pod so I didn't know what to think when her blood sugars started to rise. Probably should have changed it earlier so I didn't have to stay up all night correcting and watching. Bgs keep climbing. My non D daughter comes down crying that soemthing was wrong with our Golden Retriever she has slept with since she was a little girl. My husbands on a business trip all week. I'm home alone with bgs rising and our dog in serious distress. Talk about conflicting emotions!!! I testing DD and gave one more half correction and ran the dog to the Animal ER where I was told we would have to put her down. My mind is racing from DD at home to the decision I was facing. It was horrible. My older son was at home asleep. I got him up to test DD but he couldn't figure out the new PDM and woke her up. Thank goodness she had moved down a couple of points. I had to manage the decision to put our dog down with other totally distraught daughter. Somehow I managed it, and came home to watch vigil over DD for the rest of the night. It was honestly the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I guess I have been lucky in my life so far to be able to say that. I didn't tell DD until this morning. Anyone have any idea what grief does to a child's bgs? I am at a total loss, but she is sobbing in inconsolable. She is just learning to handle new dx emotionally. Don't know how she is going to process this. Trivial question, but any tips on how to keep the high bgs from happening after pod change? Funny I have been here so short of time but wanted to share.
