We had such a great first month on the pump and now things have gone totally crazy! He either had a slight bug right before Christmas (remember the nurse making me pick him up for a 99.4 temp and 202 sugar) or a growth spurt. Glad the constant lows are gone, but now we are battling constant higher numbers. Our schedule was so out of whack over Christmas break (going to bed late, getting up later than normal, snacking more than normal, not eating as consistently, etc). Yesterday we went out for breakfast and he was pretty good with his sugar number as was lunch. For dinner we had burgers and not too long later he was 44 (with not much activity). Ate some graham crackers and milk 2 hours later (8:00 p.m.) he was 313. Checked at midnight 273, so I corrected. Checked about 50 minutes and he was 337, so I corrected again. Checked at 3 and and he was 240 and I corrected again. Checked again at 5:30 and he was 158, so I just let that ride. When he woke up for church he was 205 and hasn't been out of the 200's yet! Been running temp basals (didn't think about that last night because I was tired). We changed his site (he was due today anyways) and was still running a bit high after that. The insulin was just opened on 12/30. His Basal/Bolus ratio is around 40/60. I have to write down his basal rates so I have them on hand. We have an endo appointment on Tuesday, so I am anxious to see what the PA has to say. I thought about asking for samples of other infusion sets, too. We are using the animas 6mm right now. I am just frustrated because we had such a good start and now things are throwing me for a loop. I am looking at Dexcom options. We don't have Iphones, and our bedroom is too far away from his (he sleeps in a finished basement with his brothers) to hear alarms. What are my options?
