That is how long Emma has had diabetes. She has had her ups and down - super highs and pretty daggone low lows. She's learned to count carbs, check her BG, dose herself, treat lows, etc. Until today - she had never had a seizure. Today she had one. She had had what's become a typical day over the past few weeks of going to baseball tournaments that we've had. She had a normal dinner time but dessert around 9:30pm at a party we went to. She was bolused for that. That was the last bolus for the day. She was low a couple of times overnight but by 6am was back up over 100. She got up at 8:30 or so. She was a bit low - 55 - but not unusually low. Hubby was going downstairs to feed her breakfast. She went to get clothes out of the dryer to get dressed and fell down. Hubby picked her up and took her to the chair in the family room. She was awake but not responding. She wouldn't take juice so I pulled out a glucagon and mixed it and gave 5 units with a regular syringe - I didn't resort to the mongo syringe since she was awake, just disoriented. She was a bit responsive by the time I gave the glucagon. A few minutes after that he took her back to lay down on her bed. She drank a little juice after that. I checked her 10 minutes later and she was up to 95 and 15 minutes after that up to 200. Its 1 hour after that now and she's back down to 155 and complaining of the stomach ache that I knew was coming with the glucagon. She doesn't remember what happened and was still having bouts of disorientation 20-30 minutes after She's resting now because she feels like crap. My heart was racing. Again, its been 5 years and 4 months. She's had lows in the 30s before and been completely lucid. She doesn't often feel her lows. But, she checked when she got up and was 55 - not 5 minutes before - so that's what's most surprising. It had also been almost 12 hours since her previous bolus and we haven't made any basal changes in a while. And yesterday's activity level was no different than it had been recently - pretty active, with a quiet period in the middle of the day. So, this came out of freakin nowhere and we have no idea why. I did learn that I need to better educate my husband but I know he didn't jump to the glucagon. And, he didn't know it needed to be pre-mixed (hello, were you at the same training 5 years ago that I was). He didn't know he didn't have to use the big syringe, but I can't blame him for that because I learned that here, and in 5 years, have never had to use it. We have now. I typically don't carry glucagon with me. Its getting carried now.
