..and I feel horrible and stupid! We did his bedtime check. Great number! Told him to go brush his teeth. Then realized at 6am this morning that I forgot to give him his Lantus! I normally give him 4 units EVERY night at bedtime, EVERY night. I have never forgotten and I'm not sure why in the world I did last night. My cell phone has an alarm set, so does his phone, they are set so we can do both the lantus and the blood check. I called the endo on call to wake him. He gave me 2 options, half now half later, or whole dose now and work up every 2 hours until we reach bedtime,just like we did when we came home from hospital. Since he'll be in school the next few days, I chose half now. Bracing for possible highs throughout the day.The endo made a joke and said "really? Well i've NEVER heard of a parent forgetting a dose of Lantus.. JUST KIDDING" then he assured me he will be ok. I often appreciate people trying to aleviate a bad situation with humor, I do it alot, but that made me cry. I don't feel too much like mother of the year right now.
